Passenger numbers at Limassol port are expected to be down this August, compared with last year, because only one cruise ship will be carrying out cruises, a senior official said on Wednesday.

Port director Giorgos Pouros said only Salamis Tours will be operating at the port this August.

“Last August we had two cruise ships, one from Louis and one from Salamis,” Pouros said. “No matter how many passengers the Salamis ship carries this August, it will not be able to reach the figures both ships achieved together last year.”

Some 9,000 passengers went through Limassol port last August. July this year saw around 1,000 less passengers than last year’s 5,181.

June 2016 was better, chalking up a small increase compared with last year – 1,856 versus 1,639.

Increased cruise traffic is expected in September, Pouros said.
