Bookings to Greece for the 2018 season are looking great with a significant increase compared to last year, Tourism Minister Elena Kountoura said on Friday.

Greece recorded 30 million international visitors last year and speaking on the opening day of the Horeca 2018 exhibition in Athens, Minister Kountoura noted that until now, bookings from Greece’s traditional and new markets have recorded an increase of 15 to 30 percent.

Kontoura said the added flight programs of airlines including new direct connections to more Greek destinations from more foreign airports this year has been one reason as to why more visitors are expected this year.

“The strategic agreements we have concluded with leading international travel groups and airlines have helped boost our tourism share for the third consecutive year and strengthen the connectivity of all Greek destinations,” she said.
