In April, tourists visiting Cyprus shortened their average stay by 0.6 days to 8.5 compared to April 2016. This, combined with an annual 5.6 per cent drop of average spending per person during their vacation to e1/4611.37, which a 1.3 per cent annual increase in average spending per day to e1/471.93 was unable to offset, prevented revenue from increasing at the same pace as arrivals.
