TTF Kolkata opens tomorrow at Netaji Indoor Stadium, signalling a cautious restart of travel & tourism


TTF Kolkata, India’s oldest travel trade show, opens tomorrow at the Netaji Indoor Stadium to help kickstart the domestic travel & tourism economy in the country.

Armed with the largest vaccination drive of the world and a high prevalence of natural immunity, Indian travellers are raring to go to domestic destinations across India. A recent study by Thomas Cook has shown that 69% of travellers are willing to travel back in 2021.

There is a very strong revival of demand for domestic leisure travel and airline bookings have reached three-fourth (75%) of pre-covid levels.

While international borders may still take some time to fully open for tourists, an increasing number of destinations abroad are reopening for Indian travellers.
