35% INCREASE IN TOURIST ARRIVALS FROM THE UK ANTICIPATED

Cyprus’ so-called traditional tourism market, the UK, is expected to out-perform itself this year, with industry insiders predicting a boost of 35% in arrivals in the summer season and a potential 50% come the winter season of 2015.

The boost is anticipated courtesy of a deal struck between the Cyprus Tourism Organisation (CTO) and an unnamed ‘major’ tour operator in the UK. Announcing the deal during a parliamentary hearing on Thursday, Minister of Energy, Commerce, Industry and Tourism, Yiorgos Lakkotrypis said that a similar agreement is being sought with German operators. He added that tourists from the Ukraine are expected to double this summer season, due to events in the Crimea preventing them from vacationing at the once-popular Black Sea resort. “We are cautiously optimistic for 2014 when it comes to tourism,” the Minister noted, adding that flight bookings reveal a good year ahead.
