    The good numbers of poor tourism
    the crisis
    Obligatory sanitary context, the holiday season 2020-2021 has seen a drop in the number of tourists. But a semblance of fun has been amusing since the month of November.

    Paul McCartney, Robbie Williams, Chrissy Teigen, Jean-Claude Van Damme or even Sofia Richie, the celebrities took advantage of the end-of-year celebrations to go to Saint-Barth.

    During the period 24 to 31 December, the port recorded 198 boat entries, with a total of 2,371 people on board.

    On the night of December 31, 277 boats were moored in the port of which more than 100 meters out of which the yachts of Roman Abramovitch, L'Eclipse, the longest in the world with its 162.5 meters and Le Grand Bleu, which measure 113.14 m. But also Ulysses (116m), Symphony (101.04m), Kaos (110m) and IJE (108m) and had more than 70 meters.

    From the airport side 4,355 commercial passenger passengers arrived on the island between 19 and 31 December, 3,347 departing from the international. Rémy de Hae- nen Airport registered more than 200 aircraft movements on 26 and 27 December and 2 and 3 January, with a peak of 247 movements.

    The balance is lower than in the same period last year, which had broken records. During the passage of the year 2019 to 2020, Saint-Barthélemy had in effect seen 217 blacks in the port of Gustavia and today had passed over 200 aircraft movements. From the airport side, there is a 17.2% drop in arrivals on the island

    For restaurants, Nicolas Gicquel, of the Restaurant Association, believes that the resumption of post-confinement is underway. "It's true that some well-to-do customers are not revenue and there are fewer people in every establishment because we can not accommodate as many people as we know, he says. But we have the impression that customers are more pleased, consumption is a little more important than before. "For restaurateurs, it's still too much to draw a first balance of parties," the month of November was excellent "and in December, some submerged establishments refused customers' designs.
