If the Cyprus issue is not settled quickly, expect Skiathos holidays to disappear very quickly ...

According to figures obtained by hoteliers of Skiathos flights last year were on the island will be preserved, while adding the Russians who have taken two offices and cooperating with the Aegean and already occurs at 25% occupancy flights. During the high tourist season expected in Skiathos airport from 60 to 65 flights per week, while the bookings indicate that there will be an increase in traffic by about 20% than last year. According to Mr. Leventis, in practice this figure will be much lower, as the beds of Skiathos is saturated, there will be dispersion of tourists in Skopelos and Alonissos, which is positive, he said. According to tourists agents for arrivals from England, is estimated to increase from 20 to 22%, the same will range Scandinavians, while two flights will operate cumulatively from Munich and Vienna (with 130 people per week). Also on these flights will be added from Russia and will remain the flights from Serbia and Israel at a rate three flights per month.

They are saying 25 percent of visitors expected from Russia have already booked.

Its just one flight from St Petersberg per week.

Lots of optimism on how it will be this year. We have two flights a week up from Larnaca, be interesting to see how that turns out.
