Overnight stays in February fall despite rise in domestic demand

Neuchâtel, 07.04.2016 (FSO) – The Swiss hotel industry registered 3.1 million overnight stays in February 2016, which corresponds to a decrease of 1.3% (-41,000 overnight stays) compared with February 2015. Foreign visitors generated 1.5 million overnight stays, representing a decline of 5.3% (-84,000 overnight stays). Domestic visitors registered 1.6 million overnight stays, i.e. an increase of 2.7% (+42,000 overnight stays). As 2016 is a leap year, February has one more day than it did last year. These are provisional results from the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).

The cumulative number of overnight stays from January to February 2016 was 5.7 million. This represents a decrease of 3.9% (-230,000 overnight stays) compared with the same period a year earlier. Domestic visitors registered 2.9 million overnight stays, i.e. a decline of 0.9% (-27,000 overnight stays).
