Long-haul Q2 Arrivals in Europe Grow

The latest results from the Air Travellers' Traffic Barometer, produced by European Cities Marketing and ForwardKeys, highlighted that the good growth of long-haul arrivals in Europe balances the decrease of intra-European arrivals.

This tendency will continue over time with forward bookings for the third quarter (Q3) of this year following the same trend.

Long haul arrivals increased by 8.4 percent in the second quarter (Q2) of this year compared to Q2 2017. Asia and Oceania, Africa, and Central and South America maintained healthy growth rates above 10 percent.

However, intra-European travel showed a poor performance with a decrease of 4.1 percent. This resulted in a moderate growth of 1.5 percent in total international arrivals in Europe during Q2.
