Asia Pacific arrivals grow 8%

August 22, 2013

BANGKOK, 22 August 2013: International visitor arrivals to Asia Pacific destinations have expanded at better than 8% over the first half of the year according to preliminary estimates released by the Pacific Asia Travel Association on Wednesday. Across the 31 destinations for which data is currently available, this translates into more than 8 million additional arrivals over those received for the corresponding periods of last year. These results are consistent with the growth predictions made by the PATA forecasts of visitor demand and place the region well on target to achieve an expected international inbound volume of around 495 million for the full 2013 calendar year. First half results for 2013 are available for 16 of the Asia Pacific destinations – which also account for 84% of the inbound arrivals volume so far this year – and at close to 145 million foreign arrivals, are within 3% of the predictions made in the PATA forecast report. A number of these destinations are performing well above expectations.
