An impressive increase of flights from Germany this summer is expected to make the country Paphos’ third biggest source of visitors.
German airline Germania is currently offering direct flights to Paphos from large German cities, including Berlin, Nuremberg, Dusseldorf and Hamburg.
Paphos tourist stakeholders said that German tourists will make up the district’s third largest market after the United Kingdom and Russia. They say that although the increase in flights from Germany cannot make up for a shortfall in the biggest markets, it is nevertheless an important and promising development for Paphos and significantly boosts the connectivity of Cyprus with Germany.
It also bolsters efforts to extend the tourism season, penetrate important markets and develop special interest tourism, they added.
