Main indicators of tourism accommodation activity reveal significant improvements - April 2011
14 June 2011

Summary
In the month of April 2011 tourism accommodation establishments registered 3.5 million overnight stays, 18.4% more than in the same month of the previous year. For this outcome, residents contributed with more 6.4% of overnight stays, while non residents, with a greater impact, had an increase of 25.5% in the total number of overnight stays. This positive performance in all main indicators is linked with the Easter period and a following national holiday, associated to promotional price campaigns, as opposed to the fairly negative results of April 2010 conditioned by the volcanic ash cloud.
The total revenue from the activity reached EUR 152.4 million and EUR 103 million from accommodation, corresponding to year-on-year increases of 10.9% and 12.1%, respectively.
