Tourist arrivals had dropped sharply in 1983, however, the first decline in over twenty years. The decrease resulted both from the regional and world economic downturn at that time and from travel restrictions instituted by neighboring countries to preserve their own foreign exchange. Observers noted also that Singapore was losing its "oriental mystique and charm." In its effort to build a modern city, it had torn down old buildings and curtailed traditional street activities, aspects considered by tourists to be part of Singapore's attraction Although increasing the absolute number of visitor arrivals was the main target, a further aim was to attract the high-spending, business visitors attending conventions and trade exhibitions, which Singapore hosted in large numbers.

  • 38. The history of Malaysia is a relatively recent offshoot of the history of the wider Malay-Indonesian world”. It is so because anthropologists and historians could see very little aspects culturally and linguistically, to distinguish today’s Malaysian territories from the lands of the Malay Archipelago. According to their research, today’s division of the Malay world into six different states-- Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore, Brunei and East Timor – is largely the result of external influences, like the Hindu India, the Islamic Middle East and Christian Europe (west), China and Japan (north-east). Besides, the most direct shipping route passing through the Strait of Malacca, Malaysia has naturally been a melting pot of trade routes and cultures. Thus, it has been found out that the geographical position of Malaysia has literally made it difficult for the Malay people to resist foreign influence and domination.

    Activities
  • 88. Foundation of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)
    • The consequence of the studies initiated by the US and subsequent consultations between the Major Allies was that the US government extended an invitation to 55 States or authorities to attend, in November 1944, an International Civil Aviation Conference in Chicago. Fifty-four States attended this Conference end of which a Convention on International Civil Aviation was signed by 52 States set up the permanent International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) as a means to secure international co-operation an highest possible degree of uniformity in regulations and standards, procedures and organisation regarding civil aviation matters. At the same time the International Services Transit Agreement and the International Air Transport Agreement were signed.
  • 89.
    • The most important work accomplished by the Chicago Conference was in the technical field because the Conference laid the foundation for a set of rules and regulations regarding air navigation as a whole which brought safety in flying a great step forward and paved the way for the application of a common air navigation system throughout the world.
  • 90.

  • 93. Chicago convention
    • The Convention on International Civil Aviation , also known as the Chicago Convention , established the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), a specialized agency of the United Nations charged with coordinating and regulating international air travel. The Convention establishes rules of airspace, aircraft registration and safety, and details the rights of the signatories in relation to air travel. The Convention also exempts air fuels from tax.
    • The document was signed on December7, 1944 in Chicago, Illinois, by 52 signatory states. It received the requisite 26th ratification on March 5, 1947 and went into effect on April 4,1947, the same date that ICAO came into being. In October of the same year, ICAO became a specialized agency of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). The Convention has since been revised eight times (in 1959, 1963, 1969, 1975, 1980, 1997, 2000 and 2006). Links to all versions of the document can be found in the external links section.

  • 98. Warsaw Convention.
    • The Warsaw Convention is an international convention which regulates liability for international carriage of persons, luggage or goods performed by aircraft for reward.
    • Originally signed in 1929 in Warsaw (hence the name), it was amended in 1955 at The Hague and in 1975 in Montreal. United States courts have held that, at least for some purposes, the Warsaw Convention is a different instrument from the Warsaw Convention as Amended by the Hague Protocol.
  • 99.
    • In particular, the Warsaw Convention:
    • mandates carriers to issue passenger tickets;
    • requires carriers to issue baggage checks for checked luggage;
    • creates a limitation period of 2 years within which a claim must be brought (Article 29); and
    • limits a carrier's liability to at most:
      • 250,000 Francs or 16,600 Special Drawing Rights (SDR) for personal injury;
      • 17 SDR per Kilogram for checked luggage and cargo,
      • 5,000 Francs or 332 SDR for the hand luggage of a traveler.
  • 100.
    • The sums limiting liability were originally given in Francs (defined in terms of a particular quantity of gold by article 22 paragraph 5 of the convention). These sums were amended by the Montreal Additional Protocol No. 2 to substitute an expression given in terms of SDR's. These sums are valid in the absence of a differing agreement (on a higher sum) with the carrier. Agreements on lower sums are null and void.
    • On April 1,2007, the exchange rate was 1.00 SDR = 1.135 EUR or 1.00 SDR = 1.51 USD.
    • A court may also award a claiming party's costs, unless the carrier made an offer within 6 months of the loss (or at least 6 months before the beginning of any legal proceedings) which the claiming party has failed to beat.
    • The Montreal Convention, signed in 1999, will replace the Warsaw Convention system, once Montreal has been ratified by all states. Until then, however, there will be a patchwork of rules governing international carriage by air, as different states will be parties to different agreements (or no agreement at all).
  • 101. How travel organizations helps the Industry and tourists?
    • International Air Transport Association (IATA).
    • Universal Federation of Travel Agent’s Association (UFTAA).
  • 102. International Air Transport Association(IATA).
    • Air transport is one of the most dynamic industries in the world. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) is its global trade organization.
    • Over 60 years, IATA has developed the commercial standards that built a global industry. Today, IATA’s mission is to represent, lead and serve the airline industry . Its members comprise some 230 airlines - the world’s leading passenger and cargo airlines among them - representing 93 percent of scheduled international air traffic.
    • IATA seeks to improve understanding of the industry among decision makers and increase awareness of the benefits that aviation brings to national and global economies. It fights for the interests of airlines across the globe, challenging unreasonable rules and charges, holding regulators and governments to account, and striving for sensible regulation.
    • IATA’s aim is to help airlines help themselves by simplifying processes and increasing passenger convenience while reducing costs and improving efficiency. The groundbreaking Simplifying the Business initiative is crucial in this area. Moreover, safety is IATA’s number one priority, and IATA’s goal is to continually improve safety standards, notably through IATA’s Operational Safety Audit (IOSA). Another main concern is to minimise the impact of air transport on environment.
  • 103.
    • IATA ensures that people and goods can move around the global airline network as easily as if they were on a single airline in a single country. In addition, it provides essential professional support to all industry stakeholders with a wide range of products and expert services, such as publications, training and consulting. IATA’s financial systems also help carriers and the travel industry maximise revenues.
    • For consumers , IATA simplifies the travel and shipping processes, while keeping costs down. Passengers can make one telephone call to reserve a ticket, pay in one currency and then use the ticket on several airlines in several countries.
    • IATA allows airlines to operate safely, securely, efficiently and economically under clearly defined rules.
  • 104.
    • IATA serves as an intermediary between airlines and passenger as well as cargo agents via neutrally applied agency service standards and centralised financial systems.
    • A large network of industry suppliers and service providers gathered by IATA provides solid expertise to airlines in a variety of industry solutions. 
    • For governments , IATA seeks to ensure they are well informed about the complexities of the aviation industry to ensure better, long-term decisions
    • IATA's goal is to help its Members provide a seamless travel experience to their customers. As today's business is driven by consumer expectations, our challenge is to meet those expectations in a financially sustainable business environment.
  • 105.
    • E-ticketing (ET) is one of the Simplifying The Business initiatives with the most significant opportunities to reduce costs and improve passenger convenience.  It reduces ticket processing charges, eliminates the need for paper and allows greater flexibility to the passenger and the travel agent to make changes to the itinerary.
    • The Simplifying Passenger Travel (SPT) Program is an initiative that focuses on the passenger and facilitating their journey while emphasizing the security benefits of processing 'known' passengers automatically, thereby freeing-up resources to concentrate on 'unknown' passengers.
    • The aim is to improve the passenger travel experience by replacing repetitive checks of passengers and their documents with a new streamlined system. The new system will collect the information once and then share it electronically with subsequent service providers to clear the passenger through their entire journey.
  • 106.
    • The SPT Program has built a unique multi-sectoral membership consisting of airlines, airports, control authorities and technology suppliers, all working towards the common goal of bringing the vison of "simplified and secure passenger processing" to reality.
    • This will provide:
    • hassle free travel for passengers
    • easier pre-travel procedures for travel agents
    • streamlined processing for airlines
    • better use of resources by airports
    • efficient and secure transportation for governments
  • 107.
    • IATA was instrumental in developing the first version of the passenger ticket
    • During the 1920s, each airline used a different form of the passenger ticket with no standard conditions of carriage
    • The industry recognised need for standardisation of traffic documents, regulations and procedures
    • It became the main focus of the IATA Traffic Committee which developed the standard ticket for multiple trips (1930)
    • Warsaw Convention (signed in 1929 implemented in 1933) established the conditions of international air transportation documents and carrier liability
    • IATA developed a neutral paper ticket in 1972 to support the global distribution system that is prevalent today – more than 60,000 travel agents around the world
      • This is what is being eliminated by the industry
  • 108.
    • In 1983 IATA established the Automated Ticket and Boarding Pass (ATB)
      • It allowed information to be printed on the face of the ticket and encoded on a magnetic stripe on the back which could be easily read by computer
    • Montreal Convention of 1999 replaced the Warsaw Convention introducing the concept of unlimited liability
    • Around the same time document requirements for passenger, baggage and cargo
      • were simplified to take advantage of new information technologies
      • became basic foundation for the development and global implementation of the electronic ticket
      • Financial Services:
    • Efficient and cost-effective management of revenues and cash is essential for the financial health of your organization.
    • With IATA, you benefit from the unique strengths of our financial settlement systems established for the industry.
  • 109. Universal Federation of Travel Agent’s Association (UFTAA).
    • The United Federation of Travel Agents’ Associations (UFTAA) emanates from the Universal Federation of Travel Agents’ Associations created in Rome, Italy, on November 22nd, 1966. UFTAA was originally founded as a result of a merger of two large world organizations, FIAV and UOTAA, recognizing the need to unify travel agencies and tour-operators into one international federation.
    • In 1989, coming from Brussels, UFTAA set up its General Secretariat in the Principality of Monaco.
    •  
    • UFTAA started its operation as a Confederation on January 1st, 2003. It is a non-profit Confederation of international scope, representing Regional Federations comprising some 80 national associations.
  • 110.
    • UFTAA is a world body representing the travel agency and tourism industry. UFTAA effectively represents Travel Agents and Tour Operators views on both Inbound and Outbound travel by continuous dialogue and consultation with other international organisations such as the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the International Hotel and Restaurant Association (IH&RA) the International Union of Railways (IUR), the International Road Union (IRU), and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) to mention only a few. UFTAA has consultative status with the UN/NGO/ECOSOC, and works closely with other world bodies such as UNESCO, WHO etc for a sustainable and responsible tourism. UFTAA is an affiliate member of the World Tourism Organisation (WTO) and its Business Council (WTOBC).).
  • 111.
    • UFTAA’s mission is to be an international forum where matters affecting the world travel industry are addressed, representing and defending the interests of incoming and outgoing tour operators, travel and tourism agencies before the governmental bodies, suppliers and other entities of international scope. It also aims at strengthening its members’ image and enhance the world travel and tourism industry and a sustainable tourism. - To comply with its mission, the Confederation develops the following functions : - To unite and consolidate the Federations of Travel Agents’ National Associations and to globally enhance the interests of their members ; - To represent the travel agents’ activities before various world-wide bodies, governmental authorities and suppliers ; -
  • 112.
    • To work towards the adoption of measures that will ease travel for the consumer and to offer services to its member federations ; - To be an investigation and information centre supporting the member Federations’ work and to offer information for technological development ; - To offer, as a voluntary mechanism, an arbitration service which assists in solving conflicts resulting from commercial relations for which amicable settlement cannot be reached ; - To organise a world congress of travel agents and other meetings necessary to the exchange and transmission of knowledge.

    • Countries that we have selected Greece,Spain,Italy and France needs only few documents to travel because we are carrying a common visa that is Schengen Visa instead of carrying individual Visa’s for each country.
    • A Schengen visa allows the holder to travel freely within the Schengen countries for a maximum stay of up to 90 days in a 6 month period.
  • 150. Schengen Visa
    • The Schengen Visa has made traveling between its 15 European member countries much easier and less bureaucratic. Traveling on a Schengen Visa means that the visa holder can travel to any (or all) member countries using one single visa, thus avoiding the hassle and expense of obtaining individual visas for each country. This is particularly beneficial for persons who wish to visit several European countries on the same trip. The Schengen visa is a “visitor visa”. It is issued to citizens of countries who are required to obtain a visa before entering Europe. The purpose of the visit must be leisure, tourism, or business. Upon the issuance of the visa, the visa holder is allowed to enter all member countries and travel freely throughout the Schengen area.
