ASEAN bursts into travel

ASEAN outbound tour operators are expecting double-digit growths in business this year, thanks to a stronger regional economy and more intra-regional flights.

 

Shroff International Travel Care Philippines managing director Arjun Shroff forecasts Philippine outbound to grow up to 18 per cent this year, with about half of the travellers opting for Asian destinations.

 

“Asia is priority. It is the most affordable destination and is easy to connect with as airlines have been launching new routes and increasing flights between cities within the region,” he said.

 

KBS Thailand managing director Kosol Boonma said increasing intra-regional air traffic from the Philippines was also benefiting Thailand. He expects Thai outbound to grow 10 per cent, nurtured by a stronger baht.
