Seoul [South Korea]March 17 (ANI/Global Economic): As the Korean government lifts the mandatory self-quarantine measure for fully vaccinated residents from March 21, outbound travel demand is expected to pick up.
According to the travel industry on the 16th, flight bookings have continued to increase since the government announced the exemption of vaccinated travelers and residents from self-quarantine on the 11th. Flight bookings on Interpark Tour on the 11th on the 13th were up 873% year-over-year and 281% month-on-month.
This is also a 54% increase from November 12-14 of last year, when expectations for overseas travel rose before the Omicron variant was released.
An Interpark Tour official said: “Flights to vacation spots such as Hawaii, Guam and Saipan are particularly popular. After Saipan, which does not require self-quarantine upon entering and exiting the country, flight bookings to Guam and Hawaii are also expected to increase after the government lifts quarantine measures.”
Travel agencies are also actively organizing various marketing events.

Hana Tour will resume its “As you dream, unfold” marketing campaign until April 30. It also offers on-time sale and pre-registration promotions.
In particular, honeymoon demand is expected to increase. A Hana Tour official said, “Since the government announced that it will lift the self-quarantine for travellers, honeymoon inquiries between April and June have increased rapidly.”
Hana Tour will hold an “online honeymoon fair” for a month in March to showcase popular honeymoon destinations such as the Maldives, Cancun and Hawaii. He also prepares group honeymoons in Europe. Additionally, Hana Tour will also offer a 10-day tour package to France, Switzerland, and Italy departing in late April or early May.
Modoo Tour will also host a time deal event that offers discounts of up to 31% on overseas tour packages. Customers can receive 1,000 Modoo Tour miles which can be used as cash by solving quizzes on its website.
However, there are also concerns that it is still too early to expect travel demand to return to pre-COVID-19 levels. It is pointed out that the recent surge in travel demand is due to the base effect of declining demand over the past two years. (ANI/Global Economy)
