Czech Witnesses Double Digit Growth In Indian Arrivals

With the number of Indian travelling to Central and Eastern Europe is expected to grow by 60 per cent by 2021, CzechTourism has geared up to have a major share of the pie. Czech Tourist Authority recently organized a 3 city roadshow : New Delhi, Bengaluru and Mumbai in India to showcase their diverse tourism products and create awareness among Indian travel trade. “Indian market offers huge potential for us. The growth in Indian arrivals has been in double digit figure in last few years. We expect similar growth in the next 2-3 years if overall scenario remains good,” Monika Palatkov√°, Managing Director of Czech Tourist Authority – CzechTourism, said.

Czech received 16-17,000 Indians in 2010 and the number continued to grow to 50,000 in 2015 and 66,500 in 2016. The first half of 2017 has already seen around 79, 400 Indians travelling to Czech, according to data shared by Turkish Airlines India office. The growth in arrivals is also attributed to ease of visa process. “This visa facilitation process has been started already and we have 16 Visa Application Centre. We are also exploring possibility of direct flight connectivity between India and Czech,” she added.
