The Langkawi Development Authority (Lada) will carry out three simultaneous tourism promotions to Cambodia, Finland and Singapore this week, its tourism manager Megat Shaharul Azman Abas said.
The events will take place at the Asean Tourism Forum in Cambodia on Jan 19-23, Matka Finland on Jan 21-23 and Singapore on Jan 21-23.
“Lada hopes that the promotions would further increase tourist arrivals to the island,” he told Bernama.
The promotions would be carried out in collaboration with Tourism Malaysia and participated by hotels as well as tour and travel operators, he said.
On the promotion in Finland, he said there had been an increase in the number of tourists from the Scandinavian and Baltic countries due to the availability of charter flights.
He said that Finnish airlines mounted 14 flights a week from last month to March from Helsinki, carrying over 200 passengers each from Finland as well as from Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Estonia and Latvia.
Lada targets 2.5 million tourist arrivals this year.
