Overnight stays begin to decline

Overnight stays in Helsinki reduced 2.3% in July. The reduction was mostly attributable to the domestic segment, where stays fell by almost four percent. Overnight stays by foreign visitors were down one percent. The largest number of foreign visitors came from Russia, even though their number reduced by 16% from July 2013. The next-largest visitor groups came from Germany, USA and Japan. The strongest growth was recorded in the long-distance visitor segment.

Nationwide, overnight stays were down 3.3% in July. The domestic segment reduced 3.3% and the international segment 3.4%. Stays by Russian visitors were down 14%.

The room occupancy rate of Helsinki accommodation providers was 69.6% in July, i.e. over one percentage point lower than in the previous year. The average price of a night, €45.07, was up a tiny amount from one year ago,
however. Stays by recreational travellers reduced, while the business travel segment was up. The duration of stay reduced a little on the part of overseas visitors, while domestic travellers stayed a little longer in Helsinki than before.

The volume of passengers at Helsinki-Vantaa airport was up 4.3% in January-July. Both the international and the domestic travel segments showed growth. The volume of passengers at Port of Helsinki increased almost three percent in January-July. Estonian traffic was up almost 6%, while Swedish traffic was unchanged. German and Russian traffic decreased (the St Petersburg service was shut down for all of February).
