The 2016 tourism report for Toulouse and its region matches the growth in airport traffic

Friday, 28 April, 2017

The 8 million passenger mark was reached at the airport in 2016, and this growth was also reflected in the number of tourists visiting Toulouse and the region.

The 2016 hospitality report for Toulouse is very good, with an 8.3% increase in reservations. This increase was mainly due to the Euro 2016 games, during which the hotel occupancy rate was 80% in Toulouse. More broadly, in the Occitanie region, 16.1 million overnight stays were sold in 2016, a 2% increase compared to 2015. With nearly 24.4 million overnight stays in the camping and caravanning industry from May to September (+3% compared to 2015), including 7 million booked by travellers from abroad, Occitanie now ranks first nationwide.
