French hotel giant Accor first half sales up 6.1 percent
French hotel and services giant Accor said Tuesday that its first half sales rose 6.1 percent to 2.85 billion euros (3.68 billion dollars) as demand picked up.
Accor said a recovery in the first quarter had continued into the second in most of its markets, with medium- to high-end offerings doing well while its budget sites did especially well in Europe.
Occupation rates had improved and prices stabilised, it added.
