Sri Lankan mission in Geneva states Swiss Air operates charter flights to island nation with high spending tourists
The Sri Lankan mission in Geneva has reportedly stated that Swiss Air has commenced “Edelweiss Air” charter flights twice a week to Sri Lanka from this November bringing high spenders from a market with a lot of potential.
A statement by the mission has stated that the Sri Lanka Mission in Geneva is collaborating with Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau to promote the island nation in Switzerland.
Accordingly, Sri Lanka is to participate at “Swiss International Holiday Exhibition” known as “iViaggiatori”, a tourism event that takes place annually in the Italian speaking canton in Switzerland.
The event is reportedly recognized as one of the prominent tourism trade fairs in Europe.
Switzerland is a well-developed economy with a GDP of CHF 668 billion and a per capita of CHF 79,000, the second highest in the world.
“Swiss tourists are considered be high spenders in leisure travel,” the statement has noted.
The increase in high spending tourists to Sri Lanka is an encouraging sign for investors in the country’s tourism, leisure and hospitality sectors. Along with an increase in the overall tourist arrivals to the country, Sri Lanka’s tourism sector has now become a hotbed for foreign investments.
