replacement for the Russians. Greece Breaks Tourist Record
The number of tourists in Greece in 2022 may exceed figures before the pandemic.
In 2019, a historical record number of foreign visitors to Greece was set – 34 million people. Among them were many Russians and Ukrainians. In 2020, due to the pandemic, only 7.4 million guests came to the country, in 2021 – 10.6 million. This is the same number as residents in the entire country.
This year, due to Because of the conflict in Ukraine, flights to Greece were closed for citizens of the Russian Federation, and many had problems with visas. Therefore, the flow of Russian tourists to the country has fallen sharply.
This did not become an obstacle to the overall rise of the tourism industry in Greece. Traffic at Athens Airport is estimated to have reached 2019 levels. 14 regional Greek airports recorded an increase in the number of passengers by 11.5%.
