Thailand’s tourism officials hope to achieve a 50% hotel occupancy rate this year

Thailand’s tourist industry officials have set a goal of 50 percent hotel accommodation this year in order to resuscitate the industry following the June 1 relaxation of restrictions. To employ more people and accelerate economic growth, it must return to 50 percent. As per Yuthasak, if rising tourists are focused, the standard expenditure should be around 62,580 baht, which is equivalent to the 60,000 baht expended during Phuket’s sandbox renewal program and the 77,000 baht expended in the first part of this year.

Hotel occupancy fell to 29 percent in 2020, then to 14 percent in 2021, according to Yuthasak Supasorn, governor of Thailand’s Tourism Authority. A rise in the cabin load factor, according to Yuthasak, will encourage airlines to bring more passengers to Thailand. The capacity of flights should be greater than 70 percent of available tickets, and it is now under 50 percent which is lower than the amount reported in 2019. They’ve also asked for the Thailand Pass registration system to be scrapped, claiming that airlines can verify that customers are up to date on their immunizations and have adequate healthcare coverage.

Now is the opportunity to go forward and to rebound on track with certain modifications that are consistent with Thai tourism’s long-term viability. According to a story in the Bangkok Post, hotel operators are focused on finding enough competent personnel during the peak season.

As per Thanet, average quantity of travelers from such simple marketplaces climbed in May, with India supplying the most visitors thus far. Also, Thanet Phetsuwan, deputy TAT governor for Asia and the South Pacific marketing, believes Thailand would need to encourage visitors all year, especially from India, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore.
