Paphos seeking to woo more Polish visitors

Representatives from the Paphos’ tourist sector will visit Poland next week to boost the district’s profile as an all-year tourist destination.

The Paphos regional board of tourism, along with hoteliers from across the region will participate in workshops and presentations in three cities in Poland, Krakow, Katowice, and Varsovia, next week April 9-11, said a spokesman for the board.

“These are important actions with the view to ensuring Paphos is an all-year tourist destination and the region is popular with visitors from the Polish market,” he said.

In 2018, there was a 58 per cent increase in the number of tourists from the Poland, compared with the same period the previous year.

“Arrivals from the Polish market have increased drastically in recent years. In 2018 numbers reached 89,000 and Paphos gained a significant share each year.”

Direct flights from Ryanair and other charter flight currently connect Paphos with Krakow, Katowice, Warsaw and Poznan, he said.

The events are the initiative of the deputy tourism office in Poland and aim to highlight what Paphos has to offer.

“We have an entire package to present about Paphos including, a power point presentation, a promotional video about the district and other promotion material to hand out,” he said.

More than 100 travel agents are due to attend.
