With a record 25 million people expected to visit Greece in 2015, the Greek Tourism Confederation and Marketing Greece brought a message of confidence and collaboration to the recent ITB Berlin 2015 event, with the launch of a new marketing campaign, Top 15 Pitch Perfect Greece.
Early-season bookings and the increase in scheduled flights to Greece indicate that the 24.5 million visitors that Greece welcomed in 2014 – including 2.5 million cruise ships arrivals – will be surpassed this year.
Andreas Andreadis, president of the Greek Tourism Confederation, said: “Last year was undoubtedly a golden year for Greek tourism, with a 23% increase in tourism arrivals from 2013 and Greece re-entering the top 15 tourism destinations of the world."
Stressing the extensive service offered by Aegean Airlines, CEO Dimitris Gerogiannis highlighted the improvement of tourism services in Greece. He said: “Aegean is committed to supporting the national effort by investing in new aircraft in 2015 and launching multiple new routes and services."
