Singapore all out to get locals travelling again
30 April 2003

SINGAPORE - Singapore’s travel trade has gone out on all-out assault to try and get locals travelling again.

The Straits Times today, after weeks of SARS-saturated coverage, ran a special headlined, “Go on, take a break” and showed a picture of a sun-tanned brunette lying on a beach.

There’s a column in the special feature, declaring, “Great time to fly”.

The writer gives good exposure to the statement by the Association of Asia/Pacific Airlines’ Richard Stirland on inflight air quality. “The air is a mix of fresh air drawn from outside the aircraft and the air has passed through very efficient filters which provide an environment that is as sanitised as a hospital operating theatre.”

The report features aggressively-priced offers from travel agents, airlines and hotels which are all offering reduced rates to get people to travel again.

Not all are convinced that price will work to get Singaporeans traveling soon. Robert Khoo, chief executive officer of the National Association of Travel Agents Singapore (NATAS), said those who were frightened to travel because of SARS would not change their minds no matter how cheap the prices.

But those who are not so afraid and have taken the necessary precautions might be tempted, he said.

Robin Yap, regional director of Insight Vacations, and immediate past chairman of NATAS-outbound committee, believes that while price may attract some travellers, “I feel strongly that eradicating fear is the immediate task by stake holders. The underlying factors are fear and lack of knowledge and not price discounts.”
