For the first three months of the year, tourist arrivals totalled 251,608 compared to 189,988 in the same quarter of 2015, recording a 32.4% increase.

Meanwhile, the number of Cypriot residents travelling abroad in March rose 4.6% on an annual basis.

According to the results of the Passengers Survey, 86.229 residents of Cyprus returned from a trip abroad in March 2016 compared to 82.418 in the corresponding month last year. The data showed that Greece was the destination of choice for most travellers – recording a 7.4% rise in March to 31,570 in March from 29,387 in March 2015.
