Tourist arrivals in the month of June 2021 are up 40-50 pct 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 in mid-May 2021.
The minister noted that currently, the countries with the most tourist arrivals in Greece are (in total) 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 pct and that reactions against restrictions came from nightclubs, as the most affected by the music and movement ban after 1:00 am.
