PATA Launches Asia Pacific Snapshot

The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) has launched the PATA Asia Pacific Snapshot: Weekly Travel Recovery Dashboard to support its destination members and the sector at large by offering an easy, comprehensive guide to the status of travel re-openings, new travel experiences, and the most current travel policies and restrictions in place across the region.

This dashboard is the latest revamp of PATA’s COVID-19 status dashboard which has been issued regularly over the past six months.

PATA CEO Liz Ortiguera said, “Clarity on the rapidly evolving travel status and policies spanning the vast array of destinations across Asia Pacific is critical to enabling the industry’s recovery and growth. The PATA Asia Pacific Snapshot addresses this issue by providing a simple and clear weekly report about travel policies, pandemic status and the latest news and marketing campaigns for destinations within the region.”

The weekly newsletter captures destinations’ latest travel development on a weekly basis through various sources and is sent every Wednesday highlighting approximately 20 destinations across the region. The list of featured destinations in the newsletter rotates on a weekly basis, with member destinations announcing new updates given priority to be featured in the newsletter.

More detailed information for 40 destinations is available on the PATA website at
