Overnight stays by international visitors increase slightly

Overnight stays by visitors to Helsinki reduced 1.1% in November. The reduction was due to the domestic visitor segment, which was down 2.5%. A slight increase of 0.6% was recorded in the international visitor segment, however. Russia accounted for the largest share of international overnight stays, even though the Russian segment reduced by 29% from the previous year. The next-largest visitor groups came from Sweden, UK, Germany, USA, Norway and Japan.

Nationwide, overnight stays were down 3.8% in November. The domestic segment reduced 2.9% while the international visitor segment was down 6.1%. Stays by visitors from Russia contracted some 27%.

The room occupancy rate of Helsinki's accommodation providers was 72.7% in November, i.e. ever so slightly better than in the previous year. The average price of a stay, €77.48, was almost €1.50 better than in November 2013. Stays by recreational travellers reduced, but the business travel segment grew approximately the same amount to offset the fall. The average duration of stay remained unchanged on the part of both domestic and international visitors to Helsinki.

The volume of passengers passing through Helsinki-Vantaa airport grew 4.4% in 2014. Growth was recorded in both the international and domestic travel segments. Passenger traffic was up almost three percent at Helsinki's ports in January-November. The Estonian segment grew more than 5%, while the Swedish, Russian and German segments also recorded growth.
