Tourist arrivals in the month of June are up 40-50% compared to July in 2020, when tourism opened after the first pandemic lockdown, Tourism Minister Harry Theoharis told SKAI radio on Tuesday.

The second lockdown began in November 2020 and ended mid-May 2021.

The minister noted that currently the countries with the most arrivals in Greece are from (in totals) Germany, France and Poland, with the latter tourists marking record visits for a second consecutive year.

Referring to the restrictions imposed on the island of Mykonos until July 26, the minister said that the rate of cancellations in Mykonos bookings stands at a low 1.00%.

He said that reactions against restrictions came from nightclubs, as they are the most affected by the music and movement ban after 1:00 am.
