Numbers of Scandinavian visitors up 26% – this has been predicted for a while as the Scandinavian flight operators have laid on new flights. Also predicted was the rise in Russian visitors:
In the first half of the year, the number of foreign visitors increased by 4.2 percent to 26.143 million, the second best performance for the period on record. Numbers were boosted by a rise of 33.0 percent in the number of visitors from Russia. The number of Italian tourists declined 1.9 percent, while the number of Portuguese guests fell 6.9 percent.
Of course there are some weaker areas – Madrid visitors are down 12%.
