Authorities in India have decided to ease restrictions on visas which made it mandatory for holiday makers to sustain a two-month gap between consecutive visits. With India’s peak tourism season underway, the decision to allow holiday makers to book flights tickets and land in the country without having to wait for the stipulating time period would surely spell wonders for the nation’s industry.

India is a inundated with charms and lures that remain unparallel around the world, however the nation’s contribution to global tourism is surprisingly low with a mere share of 0.64% in international tourist arrivals in 2011.

Industry insiders too believe that lifting of the 60-day ceiling will motivate regular foreign vacationers to book tickets deals on India bound flights. Tourists can even use India as a hub and grab flights tickets for onward journeys for visiting neighbouring countries.

So far in the year, there has been a marginal increase in the figure of foreign vacationers grabbing tickets deals on India flights as compared to 2011. Till October, 2012, over 5 million foreigners picked flights tickets and arrived in India.

Etihad Adds More Flights Services to India and Sri Lanka

Etihad Airways, the Abu Dhabi  based national airline of United Arab Emirates, is going to enhance flights services to India and Sri Lanka. It is increasing three weekly services to seven to the South Indian city of Kozhikode, effective from January 1, 2013. For the neighbouring island nation’s capital, Colombo, four flights per week would be upscaled to seven from January 2, 2013.

India and Sri Lanka are the important markets for the airline. Increasing domestic demand and the rising popularity of both destinations among foreign holidaymakers who look for tickets are the reasons that compelled the carrier to increase the service from its hub at Abu Dhabi. The rise in the frequencies is going to benefit such travellers as more tickets options will be available.

Airbus A320 aircraft will be deployed on the routes and tickets will also be provided for 16 Pearl Business Class seats, a newly introduced product of Etihad.

The increase in the operations would result in the improvement of over 370 connections a week for Kozhikode, India and 300 weekly links for Colombo route over airline’s hub. Johannesburg, Toronto, Lagos, Milan and Jeddah are going to be the prominent additional connections to Kozhikode while Geneva, Munich and Astana will be connected to Colombo.

Improved connections would mean international travellers can also reap the benefits of these additional flights operations and advanced features. Travellers could also hope to net relatively cheap economy class tickets easily as more of them will be available with more frequencies.
