Strike exemption brings relief to Kerala tourism

Published on : Thursday, January 9, 2020

The exemption granted to the tourism sector from the general strike on Wednesday will act as a respite for many tour operators in Kerala. The exception will also assist tour operators in Kochi as a cruise vessel with around 1,700 passengers arrived at Cochin Port on Wednesday.


Costa Victoria, a cruise ship from Mumbai en route to Male, docked at Cochin Port at 6.15 a.m. As many as 600 domestic tourists disembarked and 700 will embark for the tour to Male. The tourists getting off in Kochi are expected to visit nearby tourist destinations.


“With exemption granted to tourists and their movement, we expect no untoward incident on Wednesday,” said Travel Agents Federation of India (TAFI) Kerala chapter chairman Paulose Mathew.


Kerala Travel Mart (KTM) Society praised the decision by political parties and trade unions as “exemplary” to exempt the state’s tourism sector from Wednesday’s general strike.


KTM president Baby Mathew Somatheeram and media wing convener Abraham George said that the decision is for recognizing the contributions of tourism towards the Kerala’s economic development and goodwill promotion.
