Cyprus Tourism Revenus Soar as COVID Pandemic Wanes

NICOSIA – The Coronavirus hasn’t gone away – people are still being infected, hospitalized, intubated and dying – but it’s not much on the minds of tourists flocking to Cyprus again even into the autumn so far.

They’re spending too, with revenues rising 80 million euros ($83.65 million) in September, a jump of 30 percent over the same month when health measures were in effect and international air traffic was still limited.

A report by the Cyprus Statistical Service (CYSTAT) said the revenues in the first eight months of 2022, boosted by the peak summer period, jumped 88 percent from the previous year, an increase of 920.2 million euros ($9621.15 million.)

For the period between January and September 2022, tourism revenues are estimated to have reached 1.96 billion euros ($2.05 billion) as the comeback produced levels almost comparable to the record year 2019, The Cyprus Mail noted.
