Overnights by domestic visitors rising clearly

Overnight stays by visitors to Helsinki increased 1.9% in August. This growth was entirely attributable to the domestic segment, in which stays increased by almost ten percent. Stays by overseas visitors were down three percent, however. German visitors accounted for the largest share in the international segment, with their number up 12% from the previous year. Russians accounted for the second-largest share, but their number reduced by 23%. The next largest visitor groups came from Japan, USA, UK and Sweden.

Nationwide overnight stays reduced 1.2% in August. The reduction was down to domestic visitors (-2.0%), while the international segment was up 0.6%. Stays by visitors from Russia were down 13%.

The room occupancy rate of Helsinki accommodation providers was extremely high, 80.5%, in August and slightly higher than in the previous year. The average price of a night, €67.37, also clearly increased from one year ago. Stays by recreational travellers reduced while the business travel segment was up. The average duration of stay lengthened somewhat both in the international and the domestic visitor segments when compared to August 2013.

The volume of passengers at Helsinki-Vantaa airport was up 4.3% in January-September, with growth recorded both in the international and the domestic segments. The volume of travellers passing through Helsinki's ports increased almost three percent in January-August. The Estonian segment was up 6% and the Swedish segment was unchanged. The German and Russian segments reduced (the Russian route was shut down entirely for the month of February, however).
