August occupancy is around 95%, PASYXE President tells KYPE

The current tourist season shows good signs, but the report can only wait for the end of the season to be final, said PASYXE President Thanos Michaelidis. However, as an indication for the last month of summer, Mr. Michaelidis said that in August, occupancy rates throughout Cyprus will reach approximately 95%.

In his statements to KYPE, Mr. Michaelidis said that international markets are changing and our strategies must be adapted. He added that this is why the memorandum of understanding being promoted with the Arab countries will work positively, not only to attract tourists but also to serve, as an intermediate station, many European workers in the countries in question.

Maybe, he noted, the British market should remain the most important market, but it is equally important not to neglect new markets.

Mr. Michaelidis said that when we have increased numbers of tourists from a market, efforts must be made to attract tourists with a more qualitative profile.

He also pointed out that it is important that “we are not only interested in the money they will leave in our country, but also in the respect they will show to the environment and to our country”.

It is, the President of PASYXE continued, “it is important that our tourist product is distinguished by honesty, i.e. to offer what it promises”.

So, he said, a tourist destination like Cyprus should have a wide range of five-star hotel units four, three, small and large units, as long as the services offered are of a high level.

Mr. Michaelidis, who was recently elected President of PASYXE, stated that he will make every effort to resolve the several and timeless problems that concern and will continue to concern the association, always in good cooperation, with all government departments that are related to tourist events.

In this context, it is a positive fact he noted that all the provinces are represented to the new Board of Directors.

He also favored large investments, such as marinas and casinos, which will bring money and a new tourist product to the island.
