09 May, 2014

Cyprus expects a tourism boost from Great Britain, by 35% in the summer season and 50% in the winter season of 2015, following a deal between the Cyprus Tourism Organization (CTO) and Britain`s largest tour operator.

Announcing Thursday the deal, Minister for Energy, Commerce, Industry and Tourism Giorgos Lakkotrypis said that a similar agreement is sought after with German operators.

He added that tourists from Ukraine are expected to double this summer season, due to events in the Crimea.

“We are cautiously optimistic for 2014 when it comes to tourism” the Minister noted, adding that flight bookings reveal a good year ahead.
