Reduced parking fee idea for charter flights to Goa happily welcomed

In order to entice charter flights to come to Goa, the Travel and Tourism Association of Goa (TTAG) was happy with the idea of decreasing the parking fee for charter flights. This was declared in the state budget 2021-22. The president of TTAG, said Nilesh Shah, expects the concession in parking fees for charters from foreign places to be enforced this year in October.

“The foreign tourism segment is closed right now. But when it starts, we expect competition from neighbouring markets like Sri Lanka, Thailand, Egypt, Turkey and Bali in Indonesia. To compete with them and to attract the charter flights some relief was required and we are pleased that the government has granted it,” a TTAG representative said. The idea for the reduction in parking fees was suggested by the tourism industry body which the chief minister, Pramod Sawant, accepted.

“The scheme will certainly benefit the industry even though the budgetary allocation for it could have been higher,” the TTAG president said. “The budgeted funds for the scheme are actually lot lower than what was asked by the industry.”

To boost and improve tourism in Goa, some villages will be developed to highlight certain themes of Goa likecrafts, heritage, tribal, etc. This will motivate tourists to explore offbeat locations. Another idea was to install taxi metres in the state and encourage more taxi apps.
