According to some intermediate data (till the end of October) released in the Greek press about the domestic and international ferry traffic performance in 2022:

  • -13% passengers
  • -3% cars
  • +3% trucks
  • The increase in the truck traffic is due to the intense reconstruction of the islands as well as the larger needs of the islands because of the increased number of tourists.
  • The decrease in passenger traffic is due to the domestic tourism decrease, since the expensive accommodation and high ticket prices prevented Greeks from choosing the islands for their summer holidays.
  • Ticket prices increased by 25%, covering only the Ferry operators’ extra fuel costs.
