GNTO boosts efforts to attract tourists from Arab countries

The Greek National Tourism Organisation’s (GNTO) efforts to increase tourism flows from the Arab world  to Greece are in full flow, with the GNTO attending the Arabian Travel Market trade show in this context.

GNTO Secretary General Dimitris Fragakis stated to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency that “the Arab countries are the main target of the organisation’s strategy in the opening to new markets. The cooperation with airline companies of the area is very important and especially in recent years we have systematically cultivated our relations with all airline companies of the Gulf Cooperation Council.”

Fragakis said that he also had the opportunity to discuss the market’s current performance and future prospects in meetings with representatives of airlines and other companies.

Among them were representatives of Qatar, Air Arabia, Fly Dubai and Saudi airlines, as well as representatives of We Go, with which the GNTO has agreed on a programme to promote Greece in four Arab countries (UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Bahrain).
