Port Blair

Mr. K. Hamza, general secretary, Andaman Association of Tour Operators appealed to the LG, A&N Islands to look into some serious problems faced by the tourists at Phoenix Bay harbour while visiting Havelock and Neil Islands. He mentioned about problems like shortage of toilets, trolleys, wheel chairs etc. even after paying passenger service fees and stoppage of the bus service inside the harbour by the PMB. He  also mentioned about private boat operators providing free bus service for the passengers from the security check point which made the walking distance for the guests  short dragging or carrying their luggage. This action by the PMB has added to the woes of our guests. He also states in the communication that on one hand when the administration is busy promoting Brand Andaman globally, the woes of tourists seems to be growing by the day. He requests the LG to intervene and solve the issues mentioned in the letter as soon as possible and lakhs of people here depend on the revenue coming through tourists to the islands.
