"Mouzenidis Travel" will send half a million tourists in 2017
More than 30 thousand Russians have already booked tours to Greece for the 2017 season in the tour operator "Mouzenidis Travel". Over 1,000 of them will spend holidays at the resorts of Athens and Pieria. It was said by CEO "Mouzenidis Travel" Alexander Tsandekidi on business meeting with travel agents. Mr. Tsandekidi said, that the campaign, carried out by the operator on the promotion of Athens and southern Greece resorts, has produced the results. The successful development of the areas was affected by the fact, that last year the tour operator offered its customers not only accommodation, but also renting villas, private houses and apartments. As it turned out, these proposals are in demand: more than 20 thousand tourists took advantage of the offer for the season. Another theme of the event was the organization of a network of authorized agents of "Mouzenidis Travel". At this moment it includes 2500 Russian tour agencies and 500 travel agencies in Ukraine, Belarus, Latvia, Estonia and Kazakhstan. "Today, nearly 3,000 companies have chosen "Mouzenidis“, as a main partner. If we consider, that there are about 30 thousand agencies in Russia, it turns out that about 10% of them are loyal to "Mouzenidis Travel" - said Alexander Tsandekidi. According to Mr. Tsandekidi, the average growth of sales of partner’s network was 886%. With the launch of the new programs and services for the partners, good cooperation with agencies and quality tour products, the operator expects to send to the rest 500 thousand tourists this year. The plans for the coming years – is to overcome the level of one million customers.
