Reunion Island registers 175.5% growth in Indian arrivals in Q1 2017

Reunion Island has registered a substantial growth of 175.5% from the Indian market in the first quarter of 2017 as compared to the same period last year, according to the official statistics shared by Airport Roland Garros, Reunion Island. India ranked top among all 10 other countries in visitor arrivals in the first quarter of 2017 for the country.

“We have experienced the zeal of Indian travellers to explore new destinations which have unique offerings and have diversity of climate, nature, food, tourism products, like Reunion Island. I am very happy with these encouraging numbers and this wouldn’t be possible without the concentrated marketing efforts of our India’s Representative - Representation World,” said William Techer, Head-Promotion & Marketing, India and Indian Ocean, Reunion Island Tourism Board.

Sharing his delight, Vineet Gopal, Director-India, Reunion Island Tourism Board shared, “This figure didn’t come as a surprise to me as I was confident about Reunion Island’s tourism potential and unparalleled support we received from the Head Office in Reunion Island and Air Austral. Furthermore, simplified visa process and free visa for Indian nationals travelling to Reunion Island for 14 days has really helped us to achieve this inspiring growth.”

The Reunion Island Tourism Board is planning various marketing activities for the upcoming quarter to lure more Indian travellers to the destination. Also recently Reunion Island has won top place in ‘Top 7 Islands of the World’ in a competition of Wayn.
