SLTM Newsletter July 2019

  Dear Friends,

“Life is not fair get used to it” was a quote from Bill Gates. How true this is, in the context of our tourism industry today.

Life seemed so good for more than a million Sri Lankans who were benefiting from the increased number of foreign visitors to our shores. Thanks to many of you, we had increased year on year and all sectors from the informal to formal were thriving. They took loans and expanded their thriving businesses, and then suddenly, with absolutely no warning terror struck.

This impacted many livelihoods, from the tuk driver to the fruit seller to the widow who was making a living renting her spare room to the larger companies with big teams and high overheads. Well, as Mr. Gates says, we have to get used to it, we have to overcome it. And I must say, thankfully we have. With all your support and the indomitable human spirit, we are moving forward as a country, as a nation. At Jetwing, we took stock and our teams at both Travels and Hotels rallied together and faced the avalanche of cancellations we received in the 3 weeks after 21/4. It was heartbreaking, depressing and made us feel “it’s so unfair”. However, thankfully, many didn’t cancel their trip and as soon as their respective countries lifted the travel bans, they reconfirmed their travel. We are grateful to them, thank you. To those of you who have been our constant strength and support, our Tour Operator partners, we have no words to let you know how much we appreciate your support. All of you put Sri Lanka back on sale after the governments allowed you to, and are promoting our little Island.

Sri Lanka is still breathtakingly beautiful, our culture and history remain strong and our quirky Sri Lankan people are even more hospitable. Additionally, there are some amazing offers in the market. Jetwing Hotels have some jaw dropping offers – this is a great time to visit. With less visitors you can have an incredible experience. You can also put a smile on our faces!! Lonely Planet’s reaffirmation that Sri Lanka is the #1 destination for 2019 is a great boost and gives us a lot of confidence, hope it does to you too. July/August is the Kandy Perehera, then we begin the surfing season in beautiful Arugambay/Pottuvil, the Elephant Gathering in Minneriya, well there is so much more.

Let me end saying Thank You again for your faith in Sri Lanka and the Jetwing Team, you helped us yet again. We will ensure that you and your customers have an awesome experience in this beautiful Island we call home.

 
 

Blessings,

 
LTG

The Great Gathering

Despite being pint-sized, Sri Lanka is home to giants. The azure waters that encircle the island harbour the only resident population of blue whales, the largest creature to have ever existed; while the island’s top predator, the Sri Lankan leopard is considered one of the largest leopard subspecies in the world.
