The Cyprus Hotels Association (Pasyxe) said on Fridays said its members would continue to offer attractive prices for Cyprus residents as part of a plan to develop domestic tourism further this year.

“In an attempt to satisfy the increased interest of our compatriots for holidays in Cyprus due to the pandemic, Pasyxe created an updated catalogue, which includes special offers from its members for the summer,” the announcement said.

Potential visitors are requested to contact their chosen hotel in advance to see if they would be reopening this summer.

“Supporting local tourism is an urgent need in the unprecedented conditions, we are living,” the association said.

Pasyxe also said prices for July will start at €25 per person per night in either a studio apartment for two, or a double bedroom at a hotel.

The initiative is supported by the Bank of Cyprus and the tourism ministry.

Earlier, Pasyxe announced that it had appointed a new director general, Philokypros Roussounides, who will take over from Zacharias Ioannides who has held the position for 30 years.

Roussounides has held positions at DHI Global Medical Group, Cobalt Air, ETA Group, and Cyprus Airways in the past.  He said: “It is a great honour to take over this position.”

He was selected from among 90 applicants to the open call announced by PWC for the position.
