PTT Plc has set aside a budget of Bt18 million to subsidise local holidays for its staff as part of a move to boost the country's flagging tourism sector, said president and CEO Auttapol Rerkpiboon.

PTT will subsidise 50 per cent of domestic trips for 3,800 staff, capped at Bt5,000 per person.

Staff must show receipts for accommodation, food and travel tickets to get the subsidy. The programme runs from next month until December.

Companies in PTT group will launch similar programmes soon, added Auttappol.

The tourism industry, a key engine of Thailand’s economy, is suffering severe impacts from the lack of foreign arrivals due to the Covid-19 travel ban.
