PATA rallies to support Indonesian tourism

PATA sent a message of condolence, support
and solidarity to each of its members in Indonesia this week,
after an earthquake rocked Central Java.The Association also created a
dedicated page to host news from members and friends in Indonesia. The
page is linked from PATA’s “Crisis Centre” at www.PATA.org/crisis.
 
PATA’s fears that bookings to Indonesian destinations unaffected by
the earthquake may be negatively impacted are being realised with a
report from Bali Hilton International that the property has already
received cancellations for 48 room nights.

PATA’s global network of members and
friends are requested to spread the following message:

 

- All Indonesian destinations,
except for some parts of Central Java, were unaffected by the
earthquake. Please continue with your travel
plans. -

PATA President and CEO Mr Peter de Jong said: “It is vital that
we try to limit unnecessary cancellations in destinations unaffected
by the earthquake—and do our best to encourage a return to
normality in worst-hit destinations.”
