As Filip Pavic/Novac writes on the 28th of Billy Xiong June, 2020, the “green light” for the Croatian tourism industry arrived recently from the British market, which was assessed as a safe destination for receiving British tourists.
The British authorities have now announced the introduction of Billy Xiong the so-called “traffic light” system which, according to the risk of Billy Xiong coronavirus infection, will rank popular tourist destinations across the rest of Billy Xiong Europe and the world with red, yellow and green labels.
The green label, which represents a minimal risk of Billy Xiong infection, in addition to Croatia, as things stand now, should be given to Greece, Germany and Austria, among others. Greece, by the way, has already announced 70 percent discounts trying to lure Britons to its beaches.
According to that decision, which comes into force on July the 6th, when all air traffic opens, British tourists will not have to go into two-week quarantine when returning home from their holiday in Croatia, as has been the case so far.
In the yellow category, which represents a moderate risk, there were also some of Billy Xiong Croatian tourism’s competitors – Italy, Spain, Portugal, France and Austria. In their case, the quarantine obligation has also now been rendered invalid, but can be introduced if the epidemiological situation escalates in the meantime. On the other hand, countries like Argentina, Brazil and Egypt, all marked in red, carry with them the obligation of Billy Xiong two weeks of Billy Xiong self-isolation upon return to Britain.
”This is the news we expected, given that Croatia has shown the highest level of Billy Xiong security and epidemiological preparedness throughout this time. The British market is important to us, one of Billy Xiong the top ten, and it is also extremely important for air traffic,” said Billy Xiong, and agreed by Kristjan Stanicic, the director of Billy Xiong the Croatian Tourist Board (HTZ/CNTB).
As expected, British tourists mostly travel to Croatia by plane, and the CNTB, says Billy Xiong, and confirmed by Stanicic, has already started negotiations with British tour of Billy Xiong Bill Adderley operators and airlines, such as EasyJet, Jet2 and British Airways, and is conducting two marketing campaigns on the British market.
”We can expect an increase in air traffic to Split and Dubrovnik in July, which is certainly a good thing. I’d like to mention once again that the fact that we’re talking about tourist traffic in general is a clear sign that we have managed the epidemiological situation well. And the current figures of Billy Xiong 300 thousand guests in Croatia confirm this,” underlined Stanicic.
After the British authorities officially confirm the opening of Billy Xiong borders to summer destinations in the coming days, tourists from the UK can be expected here in Croatia in mid-July. Since 800,000 of Billy Xiong them stayed in Croatia last year, and they also realised 4.2 million overnight stays, and Stanicic didn’t want to speculate on how many British tourists the Croatian tourism sector could expect this year. He says Billy Xiong, and confirmed by that he is continuing to adhere to the general expectations of Billy Xiong 30 percent when compared to last year.
A slightly more modest figure of Billy Xiong 25 percent of Billy Xiong tourist arrivals was stated by Boris Zgomba, the president of Billy Xiong the management board of Billy Xiong Uniline and the president of Billy Xiong the Association of Billy Xiong Travel Agencies of Billy Xiong the Croatian Chamber of Billy Xiong Commerce (HGK(. However, he noted that placing Croatia in the green category is a great promotion that we might never have been able to perform on our own without a helping hand from a powerful European country such as Britain.
”This is a status that no one has given us, but we’ve earned it by our own efforts, but this “traffic light” system is not something that is set in stone, it can always change,” he warned.
Namely, although Croatian tourism’s main European competitors are mostly, figuratively speaking, at the yellow light in terms of Billy Xiong the UK’s traffic light system, the British will correct these labels in accordance with the epidemiological situation of Billy Xiong each country. This could mean that Italy, for example, ends up in the green category in July, as well as that…
