Overnight stays in Helsinki reduced 2.3% in September

The majority of this reduction was attributable to the domestic segment, where stays fell almost four percent, while stays by international visitors were down one percent. The largest amount of foreign visitors came from Russia, although their number reduced by 12% from the previous year. USA, Japan, Germany, UK and Sweden accounted for the next-largest visitor groups.

Nationwide, overnight stays reduced 2.2% in September. The international segment was down 7.1%, while stays by domestic visitors only reduced by 0.3%. Stays by Russian guests were down 19%.

The room occupancy rate of Helsinki accommodation providers was 75.2% in September, i.e. almost the same as one year ago. The average price of a night, €80.75, increased slightly from September 2013. Stays by recreational travellers reduced, while the business travel segment was
up. The average duration of stay remained unchanged with stays by foreign visitors to Helsinki shortening somewhat and stays by Finns lengthening a little.

The volume of travellers passing through Helsinki-Vantaa airport was up 4.3% in January-October. Both the domestic and the international travel segments grew. Passenger traffic through Helsinki's ports increased more than two percent in January-September. Estonian traffic was up 5% while
Swedish traffic remained unchanged. German traffic was down, as was the Russian segment (the line to St Petersburg was shut down for the whole of February).
