After a three-month hiatus, tourism is expected to start in Mykonos with the arrival of international travelers from countries such as Switzerland, France and Austria.
The first nineteen flights that arrived at the popular tourist destination, in essence, kicked off the rest of the tourist season for the island.
Flights from Mykonos – Santorini – Aegean Islands, led by Ambassador HACC New York, based in Mykonos, Costa Skagias, indicate that flights will total 200 in the next two weeks.
A significant percentage will consist of domestic flights from Athens and Thessaloniki, as well as a number of travelers mainly from countries like Italy, followed by France and Switzerland.
Due to the travel ban due to the pandemic, this year’s “missing” flights include countries like the United Kingdom, with slightly fewer flights from Germany.
“Although less than a third of the flights should arrive on our island this year compared to last July, given the situation, it is encouraging to note that there are no significant differences in the origin of the flights compared to the corresponding period last year. Said Skagias.
“We are looking forward to seeing how the rest of the month unfolds as well as in August,” he added.
