Public private partnership airport operators and travel industry urges Indian government to reopen doors for foreign tourists

Published on : Saturday, December 19, 2020

The PPP (public private partnership) airport operators and travel industry has urged the Indian government to reopen the doors for foreign tourists. A task force has been set up by the government with representatives from airlines, airports and airlines. Re-opening for tourist visa and creating air bubbles with more countries is expected to boost the tourism sector substantially.

The Association of Private Airport Operators (APAO) has told the aviation ministry that the six metro airports witnessed 26 lakh international passengers in April to September 2020.

To quote APAO secretary-general Satyan Nayar, “While we welcome the step taken by the government in relaxing visa and travel restrictions for foreign nationals, tourist visa has not been restored. (That) resumption will not only aid the aviation sector but also help recover the economy at a faster pace benefitting the entire tourism and hospitality eco-system of airlines, hotels, tour operators, transportation companies. We, therefore, request you to consider the resumption of tourist visa in a gradual manner.”

The Indian government is considering opening doors for foreign tourists gradually in a step-by-step way.
