Coronavirus and Rajasthan Tourism
Coronavirus scare bleeds Rajasthan tourism sector
The Third wave of Coronavirus pandemic has hit the tourism industry of Rajasthan very hard and pushed it to several years back during last nine months. Due to the pandemic, tourism sector has suffered huge losses of Rs 20,000 crore. The number of tourists has gone down and hotels registered less than 50 percent tourists. Tourism is one of the key industries of the desert state where millions of tourists visit every year. The tourism season in the state has already started but the stakeholders are disappointed at the prevailing situation.
Prior to third wave of Covid-19, there were seven international flights operating from Jaipur Airport on a regular basis. These flights were operating to Dubai, Sharjah, Muscat, Bangkok, and Kuala Lumpur. At that time, the number of flights to Dubai and Bangkok was two. Presently, flights to Gulf countries are operational under the air bubble agreement. However, flight operations for Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur locations are in dilemma. Although, we face simultaneously an epochal health crisis, the biggest economic calamity and job losses since the Great Depression, and dangerous new threats to human rights, but the hopes are still alive.

While tourism was coming back to life just before the third wave, the recovery was uneven. Hotels and restaurants were at the upper-end of the value chain were better positioned to leverage the revival, and many hotels at the lower-end that generated huge number of employment were unable to run operations even closer to the capacity.
Effect on Tourist Attractions in Rajasthan
Before third wave of the pandemic, Amber fort in Jaipur was receiving 20,000 tourists per day. But at present, only 2000 tourist are visiting the fort every day. Winter months used to be the business time, but this year, the situation is different and tours and travel operators, event organisers, hotel industry and all other stakeholders are highly disappointed and concerned. The stakeholders say that the industry has suffered due to impact of pandemic and restrictions has hit the industry hard.
One month before Christmas and New Year, preparations used to begin normally. Hotels used to run with full occupancy during the season, which starts from October. Parties, camping, adventure activities and safari used to happen but all this has changed this year due to the impact of the pandemic.
