The Greek Minister of Tourism, VasilisKikilia has announced that €2 million have been approved for tourism in Evia, which is the second-largest isle in Greece, as tourism throughout the summer season has been successful. The industry is expected to reach €12 billion in revenue for 2021.
Minister Kikiliasaid this during an interview, where he said that the Greece government has “fought hard” to keep flights from the United States open as the European Union recommended more stringent restrictions to be imposed for American arrivals, due to the pandemic situation.
“We fought hard to keep flights from America open until the end of the tourist season. We are talking about eight flights from American companies and one from Emirates, which gave huge added value to Athens and Attica and throughout the country,” said Minister Kikilia.
The minister said that the main goal of the Greek government is to provide quality jobs, which can happen by maintaining high levels of hospitality for tourists throughout October and possibly from the beginning of November.
