More Foreign Flights for Goa

Experts stress the need for international air service agreements to attract more foreign flights to Goa, enhancing the region's connectivity and tourism. Goa, a popular tourist destination, requires expanded international flight options to meet the growing demand from global travellers. Despite having modern airport infrastructure, the state is underutilised due to the lack of comprehensive bilateral air service agreements.

Currently, Goa's primary airport, Dabolim, and the newly operational Mopa Airport, have the capacity to handle increased air traffic. However, the absence of sufficient international air pacts limits the number of foreign airlines that can operate routes to Goa. This situation impacts tourism, a critical sector for Goa's economy, as it reduces accessibility for international tourists.

Experts advocate for the Indian government to prioritise negotiations for air service agreements with countries showing high tourist interest in Goa. Such agreements would facilitate more direct flights, making travel to Goa more convenient for international visitors. Enhanced connectivity is expected to boost tourist arrivals, leading to economic growth through increased spending in the hospitality, retail, and service sectors.

Furthermore, stakeholders highlight the importance of marketing Goa as an attractive destination through strategic partnerships with foreign airlines. These partnerships could include joint promotions and travel packages, enticing more visitors to choose Goa for their holidays.

In conclusion, expanding international air service agreements is crucial for leveraging Goa's full tourism potential. By improving accessibility and offering more flight options, Goa can enhance its status as a global tourist hotspot, fostering economic development and providing a substantial boost to local businesses and the broader economy.
