Crete ready to accommodate 2 million visitors


Crete has always been one of the flagships of Greek tourism. In the unprecedented crisis of the coronavirus, it managed to keep its reputation at a high level and to offer high-quality services to the tourists who visited it last summer,” Greek Νational Tourism Organisation (GNTO) secretary-general Dimitris Fragakis said in an interview with the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA) released on Sunday. 
Fragakis emphasised that this summer will be much better than the previous one, adding that the country has more weapons for a safe tourism opening.
Crete remains one of the strongest “brands”, Fraggakis said and estimated that the course of vaccinations and the timely adoption of stable rules for the opening of tourism would lead to an increase in bookings. 
According to the Rethymnon Hoteliers Association, Manolis Tsakalakis, June is the critical month to achieve 40 pct of arrivals in 2019, which translates to about 2 million arrivals in 2021.
