May 05. Greece Tourism Minister VassilisKikilias said that Greece is “expanding routes and opening new destinations” for travelers from the United States.
Kikilias spoke to senior executives from all three American companies carrying out flights to Athens this year – Delta Airlines, American Airlines, United Airlines – aimed toward establishing an initial view of the “dynamic movement of the American market so far and to strengthen it in the coming months.”
To quote Kikilias, “The bet to start the tourist season earlier than ever was won. We are now doing our best to increase our tourism product and in this context the teleconferences with the senior executives of the airlines have had a positive result as they are already launching larger aircraft with more seats, new destinations while we put conference tourism back on the tourist map from the US.”
