Tourist Arrivals to Rhodes Satisfactory in August

September 2, 2020

ATHENS — Τourist flows to the island of Rhodes via Diagoras airport are satisfactory in a difficult year for tourism in Greece, due to the coronavirus, based on figures released by airport operator Fraport on Wednesday.

After the 112,912 tourists that arrived at Diagoras airport in July, when the tourist season opened in Greece, tourist traffic posted a substantial 69 percent increase in August in comparison with July 2020.

According to Fraport, over 1390 flights were carried out bringing 190,937 tourists from abroad to Rhodes.

Τhe figures are exclusively for arrivals from abroad at the specific airport from 1-31 August, however the total number of visitors to the island should also take account of passengers arriving on domestic flights via the Athens international airport Eleftherios Venizelos and tourists using ferries routes.
