PANJIM: Tourism Department has allayed fears of a poor charter season arising due to restrictions for charter flight landings and slot allotment at Dabolim international airport.

Tourism Minister Manohar Azgaonkar informed tourism stakeholders that the government is taking corrective measures and will resolve the issue of slot allotment for charters at the airport.

On his arrival to Goa after attending the tourism trade fairs at Moscow and Paris, Azgaonkar met Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Friday to discuss the issue. “The CM has assured that all corrective steps will be taken and issues will be resolved so that Goa has a good charter season this year,” he said in a statement.

He further said, “Tourism stakeholders need not panic and should have faith in the government which is taking all initiatives towards improving tourism in the State and increasing foreign tourist footfalls.”

Herald, in its Friday edition had reported of TTAG’s apprehensions over the upcoming tourist season. It has estimated a significant dip in charter flights owing to the change in landing slots.

Meanwhile, the first charter flight for the season with 500 passengers will arrive from Russia on Sunday morning.
