Germans Returning to Cyprus

Cyprus’ burgeoning recovery will be helped with the coming summer tourism season and the comeback of Germans who had shied away.

The ITB tourism exhibit in Germany drew renewed interest in the island after the numbers had declined in recent years.

The Deputy Director General of the Cyprus Tourism Organisation (CTO) Annita Demetriades said the signs were encouraging for this year, in-Cyprus reported.

She said the Cypriot delegation met with all the major tour operators and major airlines and awaiting proposals on new arrivals and how many seats will be allocated to the island.

Demetriades stressed that it was still too early to tell precisely the level of increase that Cyprus will receive. In 2015 compared to 2014, German tourism arrivals to Cyprus recorded an increase of 30%.

In the 1990s German tourists to Cyprus exceeded 250,000 but in recent years that fell substantially to only about 100,000 a year. German tourists are big spenders and tend to stay longer than those from other countries.



PAPHOS, Cyprus (AP) — A Cyprus criminal court on Tuesday rejected a defense argument that a British man’s confession to killing his ailing wife was unlawfully obtained, because he was in no frame of mind to speak to police without a lawyer present.
