Madagascar : The recovery of tourism is desired

Madagascar : The recovery of tourism is desired

Pressure from tourist operators to reopen the borders has been very strong since 2021, until this year. The recovery of tourism is desired, but tourists have not yet come in large numbers since the reopening.

The recovery of tourism is desired

Patrick Garcia, owner-manager of the Ifaty Beach Club Nosy-Be expressed that "tourism is not only gloomy, he is cooked. This is an unprecedented disaster.". His establishment is struggling to find its 100% occupancy rate before 2020 in high season.

He still had customers last December but the number is very far from expectations before the opening of the borders.

As for the hotel Sable blanc de Nosy-Be, it had an occupancy rate of less than 10% since last December when it is used to experiencing an influx of nearly 70% over the same period before the pandemic.

Opening of Nosy-Be

The 11 last February, a meeting between Minister Tinoka Roberto and the Ambassador of Mauritius to Madagascar took place.

Striking points were raised, in particular the criteria required by the two countries for the effectiveness of the reopening of the borders.

For the case of other airports in Madagascar, the opening of commercial flights to Nosy-Be remains a priority for the State. Nosy-Be can now accommodate cruise ships.

Nosy-Be tourist operators in fear

Nosy-Be tourist operators fear the abandonment of international flights and finally break the silence.

In a press release, the Regional Tourist Office of this tourist-oriented island, challenges the authorities and reports the dissatisfaction of the tourist operators of this city on the non-return of international flights to Nosy-Be.

The main fear for these operators remains the abandonment of the destination by the airlines if the situation persists..

Few foreign tourists are interested in the correspondence lines passing through Antananarivo to reach the provinces.

Yet, it was indicated during the meeting between Minister Tinoka Roberto and the Ambassador of Mauritius to Madagascar that now Nosy-Be will be able to accommodate cruise ships. Which still leaves some operators skeptical.

It seems that this means of transport is somewhat demotivating for tourist operators due to the cyclones that are created in the Indian Ocean.

In addition, most of the boats are from Mauritius bound for South Africa or Europe or the United States.
