Late tourism bookings gaining momentum

Data from foreign tour operators who bring large numbers of holidaymakers to Greece say that last-minute bookings for most Greek destinations, such as Alonnisos (pictured), for this summer’s peak season, appear to be picking up, while they are also making positive noises about this coming fall.

Tour operator representatives say that after the fresh blow inflicted on Turkish tourism due to this week’s terrorist attacks at Istanbul’s main airport, the volume of late bookings is set to grow further.

Turkish tourism has already suffered annual losses of 22.9 percent in international arrivals in the first five months of the year.
