April Shows an Upward Trend in International Passenger Traffic at Greek Airports

ATHENS — April showed an upward trend in international passenger traffic at Greek airports, compared to April 2020.

According to the passenger traffic statistics released by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), the upward trend in arrivals is starting to show an upward trend compared with the corresponding month last year, as Greece started accepting travelers from some countries without a quarantine, provided that they have completed their vaccinatation or display a negative test.

In terms of passenger arrivals from abroad, this year Greece received 101,521 passengers, while in April 2020 only 5,484 passengers had arrived, an increase of 1,751.2 percent. The total number of flights (domestic and international) amounted to 12,569, also recording an increase of 126.1 percent compared to the corresponding period of 2020, when 5,559 flights had landed.

In terms of the overall statistics for the first four months of 2021, from all airports, a drop of 69.4 percent is recorded, reflecting the negative effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.


ATHENS - While Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has brought an accelerating economy to Greece, his government is struggling to hold down soaring food prices that have led many households to switch to cheaper products or cut spending.
