Tiger Tourism Ban Lifted in India Tourism Industry Smiles

In what could very well be wonderful news for wildlife lovers and game watchers, India’s Supreme Court, the final court of appeal in the nation, uplifted a temporary ban on tourism in core areas of India’s tiger reserves. 

Indeed, foreign tourists who had planned to book flights tickets to the country, attracted by India’s wonderful lure of tiger sighting, can now breathe easy! The highest forum of judiciary in the country came out with an order that permits tourists in up to 20% of ‘core areas’ of the reserves. ‘Core areas’ are the regions in the parks where the concentration of the big cat is the highest. 

Majority of the tiger parks like the Jim Corbett National Park and Ranthambore National Park, which are popular among wildlife lovers buying tickets on India-bound flights, offer access to even less than 20% of core areas anyways.

Delhi Winter – Romance the Lovely Weather!

Highly romanticised Delhi winters hold a special charm for not only local holiday makers but also for those foreigners who are booking flights tickets to the country and landing in India’s capital city. The wonderful weather conditions coupled with a fine parade of spellbinding attractions and events makes winter the perfect time to look for cheap flights tickets to Delhi.

We all know summers in India can be really scorching and the rains in the nation could be equally messy, given the less than appropriate drainage systems of even the most modern of cities in India. It is the winter (October-February) in the country that truly brings out the incredible romance this place is so famous for. And what better place than Delhi to enjoy that romance! Of course, grabbing cheap tickets on flights to the country during the period is no joke as demand is high and availability of cheap flight deals is less. Smart tourists can book their India flights tickets early as that is the only chance to get a whiff of cheap bargains!

Wintery months in Delhi can be truly magical given the wonderful weather conditions that usually shadow the months. Sightseeing is enjoyable as conditions are pleasant. The awe of standing in front of the Red Fort with the balmy sun rays veiling your face is much better than getting battered in the blistering sun of summers!

Goa would soon be offering the services of a sea plane for tourism purpose, bringing much cheer to the local and foreign tourists taking air tickets on India bound flights landing in the smallest state of the country, said a government official.

The authorities will be introducing a nine-seater aircraft which will have the capability of taking off and landing on water. It is said that the services will be launched around the time of Christmas, a high tourist season when hordes of holiday makers book air tickets on flights to Goa to explore the vibrant beach destination of India.

Terming the service as a “joy ride’, the official stressed the new initiative of the state govt will be affordable and apt for budget vacationers taking cheap air tickets on flights landing in India. A ride in the plane is not surely going to put much strain on the pockets of the tourists netting air tickets to India.

While a private party is going to handle the operations of the seaplane, other details like logistics are yet to be chalked out by the relevant establishments. Offering a novel experience to all those taking air tickets on India bound flights, Goa will be the first state in the country that will be using the seaplane for tourist-centric purposes. The islands of Andaman and Nicobar have a similar aircraft but they are not used for tourism interests.

The plane can also be used to carry passengers from the airport to different locations in the coastal state.

Las Vegas’ Caesars Entertainment Enters to India

Times are likely to get even better for leisure vacationers taking tickets on flights landing in India! Caesars Entertainment, one of the world's biggest casino companies, is planning a foray in the country and is likely to offer a big treat to the locals and foreigners who will book flights tickets and land here. However, the corporation is only allowed to bring in its non-gaming businesses to the country.

The firm will involve itself in businesses like luxury hotels and the management of Bollywood-centric events, concerts, musicals, drama and stand-up comedy.

This Las Vegas-based company currently owns 50 hotels and casinos in different countries of the world and is now hoping to bring in the same level of quality and excellence in India with its 15 hotels that are being planned for the country.

The hotels are likely to be plush properties that will cater to luxury seekers making booking for tickets on flights headed towards India. Caesars, the popular hotel brand of the corporation, will be set up and is sure to offer wonderful set of services and amenities to tickets buyers for India bound flights. However, it can also be safely presumed that budget travellers with eyes on cheap flights tickets to India are unlikely to opt for such lavish properties.

Caesars’ entry into the country also makes it possible for a string of noted world level performers to come to India, as they are associated with the corporation properties.
