Indonesia Tourist Arrivals Sink to Lowest Since 2009

(Bloomberg) -- Indonesia reported the fewest foreign tourist arrivals since February 2009 as the coronavirus pandemic led to country lockdowns and a slump in travel demand. There were 470,900 overseas visitors in March, down 64% from the same month last year, with tourist numbers from both China and Hong Kong falling at least 96%, Indonesia’s statistics agency said Monday. Domestic passenger traffic dropped 24%. The government has since banned air travel in the country until June 1.
