【看CP學英文】交通部觀光局預估,國際觀光要到明(2021)年第4季才有機會邊境開放,且未來機票可能變得更貴;出入許多國家來回還得入住防疫旅館,變得耗時又耗金錢。

Taiwan’s Tourism Bureau said on Tuesday that countries won’t open the border to tourists until the 4th quarter of next year (2021), while authorities expect flight tickets to become more expensive in the future.

The Tourism Bureau also anticipates that travel to foreign countries will take longer and require more resources due to the need to stay at quarantine hotels.

根據觀光局指出,目前受到新冠肺炎疫情影響,國際觀光估計要到2021年第4季,才有機會對部分邊境國家解禁,目前初步規畫名單將有港澳、日本、南韓、越南和紐西蘭,不過2022年至2023年為「旅遊泡泡」,還要等到2024年才可能恢復常態旅遊。

As a result of the pandemic, it is estimated that Taiwan will not be able to lift the travel ban on neighboring countries until the fourth quarter of 2021.

The current preliminary list will include Hong Kong, Macau, Japan, South Korea, Vietnam and New Zealand, authorities said.

However, the “travel bubble” will be in place from 2022-2023 and tourism may not return to normal until 2024, the Tourism Bureau said.

此外,這波疫情也對國際航空公司帶來嚴重影響,尤其是廉價航空,像是酷鳥航空、日本亞航、港龍航空等都因需求減少,不堪虧損退出航空市場,未來廉價航空機票越來越少,機票價位可能還會上漲。

In addition, the pandemic has also seriously affected international airlines, especially low-cost airlines. Airlines such as NokScoot (酷鳥航空), AirAsia, Cathay Dragon, and more have completely pulled out of the market as the demand dropped drastically amid the coronavirus pandemic.
