Double-digit growth of organized tourist traffic from Russia announced

first_imgThis was confirmed by the representatives of TUI, led by Mahmut Kansu, Director of Foreign Market Development. Thus, TUI is announcing a 20 percent increase in Russian guests, and they are very satisfied with the cooperation with Croatian hoteliers and the available capacities this year. The Croatian delegation also met with representatives of the tour operator PAKS, whose director and co-owner Vitlalij Cizikov announced a growth of 15 percent and stressed that a significant part of their offer relates to Croatian destinations.   “Russian tourists spend the most nights in Croatia in Istria, Split-Dalmatia County and Kvarner. In addition to the growth of tourist traffic, our goal is to approach and position the Croatian continental offer in this large and potent market. “, believes the director of the Croatian Tourist Board Kristjan Staničić, adding that during the last year in Croatia there were more than 135 thousand arrivals and more than 932 thousand overnight stays of Russian tourists. As part of the Croatian stand, five co-exhibitors present their offer, including the Zagreb Tourist Board, Atlantis Travel, Istarski dvori 2, Lošinj Hotels & Villas and Croatia Yachting.  The Director of the CNTB Representation in Russia, Rajko Ružička, emphasized that based on the first information and the meetings held, it can be concluded that there is great interest in Croatia, which is why positive trends and growth in tourist traffic are expected to continue. “Positive growth in arrivals, which according to the announcements should be higher than 20 percent, is expected not only from the Russian market but also from the Ukrainian market. This is the result of numerous promotional activities that we carry out during the year, with the greatest attention being paid to the presentation of health and nautical tourism, which are the most recognizable segments of our tourist offer among Russians. “, concluded Ružička. “Russia is a significant emitting market for Croatia, which, among other things, is confirmed by the daily consumption of Russian tourists, which is 50 percent higher than the average. It is important for us to continue good tourism cooperation and strengthen our visibility in this market. I am extremely pleased that the largest Russian tour operators have recognized our continuous work on improving quality, which is why they have created additional offers for Croatia. “, said the State Secretary of the Ministry of Tourism, Tonči Glavina. The Croatian National Tourist Board is once again presenting the Croatian tourist offer at the MITT fair, which is being held in its 26th edition in Moscow until March 14. It is the largest tourism fair in the Russian Federation, which is one of the top 5 tourism fairs in the world. Namely, about 2000 companies and representatives of about two hundred international tourist destinations are participating in the fair this year as well, and it is expected that about 30.000 visitors will visit the fair. last_img read more
