Rise in Greek airport arrivals buoys hopes for 18.5 mln tourists this year

The Association of Greek Tourism Enterprises (SETE) said on Monday that it is confident Greece will meet its target of attracting 18.5 million visitors, generating 13 billion euros in revenues, this year.

SETE made the statement based on airport arrival figures for the first quarter of the year. Arrivals at Athens International Airport were up 36.1 percent on last year. The tourism organization sees this as confirmation of its forecast that around 700,000 more tourists will visit Greece this year than in 2013.

Also on Monday, the Hellenic Statistical Authority (ELSTAT) said there had been a rise in the number of visitors to museums and archaeological sites on Monday.

Museums saw an 11.8 percent increase in visitor numbers and a 10.5 percent increase in their receipts, compared to January 2013.

The number of visitors at archaeological sites was up by 29.1 percent but receipts fell by 19.5 percent compared to a year earlier.
