Melaka’s tourism industry would take at least two years to recover from the effects of Covid-19, according to the state’s tourism board.

This is after taking into account various factors such as the reasons behind the temporary or permanent closure of establishments during the Movement Control Order (MCO).

Melaka Tourism Board chairman Datuk Muhamad Jailani Khamis believes that the state’s industry tourism industry will fully recover within two years after the end of COVID-19 but trying to gain the trust of tourists to come to Melaka will take time.

Previously, the state has tried to implement strategies to lure tourists but it was cut short by the spread of the pandemic.

Among these were more air routes to domestic and foreign destinations via the Melaka International Airport in Batu Berendam.

He said the number of tourists using the airline services in Melaka increased to more than 100,000 last year compared to less than 20,000 in 2018.
