Greece Tourism Industry in Q2 2012 Analysed by BMI in New Topical Report Available at MarketPublishers.com04 Apr 2012 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – The number of tourists arriving at the 13 largest airports in Greece during January-October 2011 was up by around 9.6% year-on-year, according to the Association of Greek Tourism Enterprises. Due to strikes and demonstrations in Athens and thus strong negative publicity, arrivals at the country’s largest airport, Athens International Airport, were down. The main tourist destinations in Greece were the islands of Rhodes and Kos, with visitor numbers up by well over 20% y-o-y on both islands. Tourist arrivals to Thessaloniki increased by over 11% y-o-y.
Strikes and protests, eroding Greece’s risk profile, and uncertainty over the sovereign debt crisis in the eurozone also hamper the tourism sector. The outlook for foreign visitors is strongly impacted by real GDP growth in the eurozone, which decreased by 1.6% and 0.5% in 2011 and 2012 respectively, although growth is expected to recover slightly in 2013.
