Greek Tourism Minister: Deal with 11 airlines to increase flightsFrom November to March

Greek Tourism Minister Vassilis Kikilias in an interview with public broadcaster ERT referred to the interventions implemented to strengthen winter tourism, so that Greece welcomes travelers throughout the year, ANA reports.

Kikilias underlined the importance of the agreement reached with 11 airlines for flights even between November and March, noting that the extension of the tourist season has already been implemented.

"In November we had a very good attendance at the branded destinations, on our islands, in Athens, and in Thessaloniki. I am Minister not only of summer destinations, resorts, hotels, and all professions that touch the sea and the sun but also of winter destinations," he said making special reference to the Greek National Tourist Organisation (GNTO) campaign aimed at the city break.

During the Christmas holidays, the accommodation in all popular winter destinations will be full, while at the same time important initiatives have been taken to strengthen the mountain alternative destinations.
