Malaysian Tourism, which has witnessed 6.35 lakh tourists from various places across India, now wants to attain the one million mark soon, making use of the ‘catchment’ area of Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (Shamshabad) and taking up promotional activities to attract travellers looking for religious places, rain forests, beaches or just for shopping.
A memorandum of agreement (MoA) was signed among the GMR Hyderabad International Airport, Malaysian Airports Holdings, Berhad, and Malaysian Tourism Promotion Board in Hyderabad yesterday, to drive tourists from Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and also from Odisha, north Karnataka, south Maharastra, towards Malaysia.
Collaborative market research, strategy development, promotional and marketing efforts were part of the tripartite agreement signed.
Destinations like Malaysia and other South East Asian countries like Mauritius and central European countries like Switzerland which were “four to five hours” journeys, would facilitate hassle-free affordable travel for Indians, by collaborating with the tourism boards concerned.
