Kikilias: The Tourism Season Has Started Earlier Than Ever

ATHENS – “The tourism season has started earlier than ever and we at the tourism ministry are working every day to enlarge it, in terms of both quantity and quality,” stated Tourism Minister Vassilis Kikilias to Fortune magazine.

Referring to the US market, Kikilias underlined that “the Americans are what we call ‘high spenders’ and together with the Greek National Tourism Organisation (GNTO) we are intensify our efforts in this important market, which, as it seems, are bearing fruit”.

On the good results in the cruise sector, he said that it was a strategic choice, underlining that from February 2023, Royal Carribean will start winter cruises, which will promote the less popular tourism period, particularly for the US market.


ATHENS - The search-and-rescue operation to locate a missing F-4E Phantom II fighter jet pilot, Captain Efstathios Tsitlakidis, aged 31, was ended on Wednesday after an analysis of the collected evidence from the crash confirmed his death, a Hellenic Air Force announcement said.
