Lusa - Business News - Portugal: Tourist numbers in March up 3.5% on year but nights stayed down 0.2%

Lisbon, May 15, 2019 (Lusa) – Portugal's tourist accommodation in March received 3.5% more guests than in the same month of 2018, for a total of 1.8 million, but there were 0.2% fewer overnight stays in all, at 4.5 million, as the number of non-resident tourists fell, figures released on Tuesday by the National Statistics Institute (INE) show.
The number of overnight stays by residents of Portugal was up 4.8% on the year in March, after a 3.8% year-on-year drop in February, while those by non-residents were down 2.2%, accelerating the year-on-year drop of 0.5% seen in the previous month.
The results were affected by the fact that festive seasons were in different months this year: Carnival was in March this year (which in the previous year had been in February), while Easter was this year in April, but in March in 2018.
The Spanish market (accounting for 9.6% of the total) is traditionally sensitive to the latter effect, and there was a sharp decrease in the number of overnight stays by visitors from Spain, as well from Germany and France.
By contrast, the Brazilian market (6.2% of total overnight stays) was in March up 28.6% on the year, while the UK (17.6% of the total) was up 1.6%.
There were also strong gains in overnight stays by visitors from China (up 22.2%) and from the US (up 20.4%).
Overall, the domestic market – residents of Portugal – accounted for 75% of all overnight stays, and grew by 13.7% on the year, while foreign markets taken together shrank by 9.3%.
According to INE, in March the average stay was 2.48 nights, down 3.6% on a year earlier.
Growth in sector revenue slowed, with the year-on-year increase in March 3.1%, to €246.8 million, down from a 4.2% rate in February.
In the first quarter as a whole, overnight stays were up 0.7% on the year – driven, according to INE, by the positive contribution from the domestic market, with foreign markets little changed (down 0.1%).
