Astoi’s Ezhaya expects to see the ban on tourism travel lifted from the end of March 

Tuesday, 15 February 2022 12:19

Pier Ezhaya, president of Astoi, in a statement to the Italian daily La Repubblica, returns to the rapport between the institutions and the system of organized tourism.

"We are moderately satisfied with the extension of tourist corridors even though the new destinations are countries like Thailand and Oman where tourism is mainly concentrated in the winter months," said Ezaya.

Compensation is long overdue 

Following the opening of these corridors Astoi’s president launches yet another appeal to the government and to the institutions. "We are not at all satisfied with the refunds. Now that the Italian president has been elected, we ask that the refunds our sector is waiting for be allocated as compensation for the damage suffered during the travel ban in 2021. Unfortunately we have the impression that there is no perception of how serious the situation is for tourism." 

At present we are stuck at minus 80% 

"If this summer we bounce back to a minus 40% compared to 2019 we will consider ourselves satisfied. At present we are stuck at minus 80%.  These are brutal numbers and it is not clear why aid is not on the way for an industry in such serious difficulty. From the end of March we hope to see the end of the state of emergency and, two years from the start of Covid, we expect to see the ban on tourism travel lifted."  Removing one of the heavy ball and chains on Italy’s tourism system.
