Tourist revenue rose 2.3 per cent in November to €83.8m, compared to the respective month of 2015, the statistical service said.

In January to November, total revenue rose an annual 12 per cent, to €2.3bn, Cystat said in a statement on its website on Monday.

On December 19, Cystat said that tourist arrivals rose 15 per cent in November, to 124,192, and 20 per cent year-on-year, to 3,098,604.
The increase in revenue was below that of arrivals mainly because of an annual 7.9 per cent decrease in the average length of stay, to 9.5 days, combined with a 3.4 per cent drop in the average spending per person, per day, to €71, Cystat said.

While the number of visitors from the UK, Cyprus’s largest source of incoming tourists rose an annual 3.4 per cent in November, and their average stay increased 3 per cent, to 12.1 days, their overall spending per person, per day, dropped 11.2 per cent, to €70.64, which may be linked to the weaker Sterling, Cystat said. A 0.6 per cent drop in arrivals from Russia, and a 7.4 per cent drop in the average length of stay, to 8.7 days, were offset by a 9.9 per cent increase in average spending per day, to €80.
