In a positive track -- tourist arrivals in Greece
In a positive track -- tourist arrivals in Greece

In a positive track are the tourist arrivals moving in Greece, according to preliminary figures which publishes today the Federation of Greek Tourist Enterprises and come from the airport of the country and now the Greek tourism rises to two-digit number of arrivals throughout the year.

Specifically, the period January - April the arrivals of foreign tourists rose to 5,6% compared to 2010, reaching 1.147.555 tourists. Impressive is however the increase recorded in April for the whole country by getting to 24,04%, which means that about half of the tourists in the first months of 2011 arrived in April (541.974).

In regards to the traffic at the airports of the country, Rhodes, Kos and Zakinthos are stealing the show, increases of which were at high levels in April. While the Rhode Island rose to air arrivals in April to 133,00% and 119,18% in the first quarter of the year, Kos was at 600% in the quarter of the year and 539% in April, and Zakynthos in the first quarter of the year 521% and 504% only in April. Please note that the takeoff from these islands is mainly due to the advent of low cost airlines as a result of the actions of YPPOT during the recent months.

In regards to the Athens airport, although the data was positive, as the first quarter of the year falls to 4,94% in arrivals, in April was an increase of 1,60% and there is optimism for the coming months which the touristic movement will peaked.
