Odesa region expects a 10% increase in tourists this year

Odesa region expects a 10% increase in tourists this year, Maxim Stepanov, the governor, tells Interfax-Ukraine. Most tourists come from Kyiv, Lviv, Moldova, Turkey, and Israel. While the average tourist stay is one week, the governor wants to lengthen stays by promoting “health and wellness tourism.” By contrast, Lviv region expects a 20% increase in tourists this year. Lviv benefits from a better managed airport, offering 32 destinations, twice as many as Odesa’s 16. This year, Lviv is to surpass Odesa as Ukraine’s third busiest airport, after Kyiv’s two airports.
