Arrivals at Greek airports rise 10.8 percent in 2013

Arrivals from abroad at Greece’s main airports posted a 10.8 percent annual increase in 2013, according to data released by the Association of Hellenic Tourism Enterprises (SETE), totaling 12.64 million against 11.41 million in 2012.

The biggest annual increase was reported at Kalamata Airport in southwestern Greece (up by 61.2 percent), followed by Myconos (26.7 percent) and Santorini (22 percent).

December also helped toward that increase with a 16 percent rise in foreign arrivals compared with the same month of 2012.

The country’s main carrier, Aegean, contributed significantly to that growth, as in the first 11 months of 2013 the airline reported a 17 percent rise in traffic from its Greek hubs.
