Phuket tourism operators expect 1 million guests in first quarter of 2022

The head of the Phuket Tourist Association is optimistic about Thailand’s re-opening to vaccinated vacationers from 63 international locations, which begins today. Bhummikitti Raktaengam predicts the southern island will see 1 million international tourists in the first quarter of subsequent yr.
“Bookings in November elevated by 20%, whereas the load factor for some international flights may even rise to 80%, because of fewer travel guidelines for low-risk nations and the winter season.”

According to บริษัทติดตั้งโซล่าเซลล์ชั้นนำ , Phuket Airport will welcome 825 international flights from 17 airways this month. Last month, 562 flights from 11 carriers touched down on the southern island. Based on passenger advance data from the soon-to-be-defunct Certificate of Entry system, Phuket hotel occupancy is anticipated to increase to between 25 and 30% this month. By comparability, the rate was simply 18 – 20% final month. It is currently at 35% for the month of December.
During the primary quarter of 2019, Phuket welcomed three million vacationers. Bhummikitti factors out that Russia is a significant market for the island but for now, tourism operators must depend on different nationalities as Russia isn’t on the list of sixty three international locations permitted for entry with minimal quarantine. The country is presently experiencing a surge in infections, with widespread vaccine hesitancy exacerbating the issue.
Meanwhile, Bhummikitti says he’s assured in regards to the re-opening to vaccinated vacationers, mentioning that simply 0.3% of international arrivals examined positive for Covid-19 in the last four months. Phuket’s governor, Narong Woonciew, says the island’s public well being system is ready for the worst-case situation, with available hospital beds at 60% and over 50% of the inhabitants having received a booster vaccine dose.
