TAT Revises 2020 Overseas Forecast To 16 Million Visitors

Category: Tourism, Posted:18 Apr 2020 | 11:28 am

The Tourism Authority of Thailand has revised their full-year 2020 projection to 16 million overseas visitors.

Based on the number this is an approximate drop of 60% over 2019,  when visitors nearly hit 40 million for the full year.

Presently, the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) has extended the ban on international flights to Thailand until 30th April.

Bangkok Airways which operates five airports in the country, has three closed, namely Koh Samui, Sukhothai and Trat.

The expectation of easing of restrictions and open of airlift in May appears to be in the cards, but a testing system, policy on social distancing on flights and health certificates are key issued in the re-opening process.

Cash strapped airlines including Thai AirAsia and Thai Lion Air are looking to address stretched finances by offering pre-sale vouchers and open dated flights.
