Travel Tourism, Hospitality and Aviation Industry in India

Travel Tourism, Hospitality and Aviation Industry as a subject is new. These three are fast emerging subjects and a promising Service Industry.

However, the fulfilment of the goal of the subject remained far behind due to shortages of required human resources. Several Vocational Institutions are backbone in contributing to fill up the gap of the‘Urgent Industry Needs and Snail Pace Supplies of Qualified Human Resources’. On the other hand, in country like India, the unemployment rate and development disparity is increasing due to insufficient and incompetent government policy which gives thrust to mushrooming growth of private players in grooming human resources as per the Industry’s needs.

As per the reports, in 2015 the travel and tourism sector contributed Rs8.22 trillion or 7% of India’s gross domestic product (GDP) and 37.4 million jobs—almost 9% of total employment which is awesomely becoming a giant employment provider in developing country like India.

It is predicted to rise by 6.5 % P.A. for at-least decade upto Rs.4337.8 Billion in 2025 (6.9% growth). The reports also claimed that this sector has the potential to provide 46 Million employments to India’s economy. The government policy will also play an important role to fulfil this prediction. Yes, India has the resources and the potential to create services and employment in this sector. Several potential tourist destinations remain untouched and unknown to potential tourist because of the lack of support and policies from government. But, the concern is whether the ruling government and locals extends their helping hands through proper policies and goals to achieve as expected and consciously look into in implementation of the same. The judicious exploitation of the natural gifts of the nation needs a conscious and sincere efforts.

Therefore, at this juncture, where unemployment leads to strife and disturbs peaceful co-existence of nation,Travel Tourism, Hospitality and Aviationas anemployment driven subject, along with Vocational Institution plays a pivotal role in transforming unskilled labor to SKILLED human resource, providing services to customers and employing the mass.

Untitled1

  • Latest Devices:People are bringing more devices into hotels than ever before – tablets, laptops, etc. Hotels should strive to provide enough bandwidth to accommodate these many devices, though tiered Wi-Fi services are becoming quite common (with ‘basic’ being for browsing and email, and ‘paid’ being for streaming video).
  • Wi-Fi:Providing solid and good internet connectivity in every property will be a MUST
  • Language Translating Mobile Apps:Apps will be increasingly useful in facilitating international meetings and travel by translating text instantaneously (Word Lens)
  • Guest service apps for phones: are going to become integral to both large and small hotels. They’ll be able to perform a wide array of tasks – they can reserve rooms, order room service, make spa appointments, control the drapes and thermostat, provide reminders for guests, and even unlock the door.
  • JW Marriot, Intercontinental Hotel Group (IHG),ITC Hotels have started using Mobile apps such as ‘”Hotel Tonight App” which offer 3 hotel option per night (stated by JW Marriot) from 12 PM to 2 AM to book room and secure deal. Another one is Win IT which gives user location by using GPS feature, checks hotel facilities
  • Hi Tech Accessories in Guest room:Guestrooms may become enhanced with some pretty amazing features – interactive bathroom mirrors that can be used as touchscreens to check email and weather, Hi-Can beds, and TV displays projected on walls or glass screens.
  • Social Media:The hotel industry obviously needs to get networking – using social media platforms to engage with customers, clients, and potential guests.
  • Automatic Door opernes through Mobile Apps: Keyless entry via mobile apps is now a reality. New properties in the Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites in the United States are making use of a mobile app – OpenWays – which lets guests bypass the front desk and use their mobile phones as a mobile key.
  • Property Management System: Amadeus, launched the Amadeus Hotel Platform, a centralized above-property solution that will transform the way hotels do business.

Offering a single and real-time view of the entire business, Amadeus Hotel Platform allows hoteliers to deliver innovative and new guest services, generate additional revenues and also quickly react to market changes as new trends, behaviors and demands emerge.
  • Smart Phones:Another example of cutting-edge innovation is the smart phone-based OpenWays technology – If the guest is arriving, hotel can text the guest, ‘Welcome,’”. “If the guest will tell to hotel staff when he land, we’ll check you in and send your room assignment, and you can go straight to your room and use your smartphone as your room key.
  • Latest iris scan technology. Guest have no key, no card, nothing needed to open the door except looking into a camera
  • High Tech Lobby:Large interactive screens in the lobby that enable guests to find a meeting room in the hotel, a restaurant in the neighborhood or an event at a nearby venue and print out directions
  • Room sensors: are devices that detects changes in quantities and provides a corresponding output, generally as an electrical or optical signal. In the hospitality industry the room sensors helps in various ways like maintaining the temperature of the rooms, transmitting information to the front desk, etc. The company offers various products which include a combination of RFID locks and the use of the RFID key cards for triggering the energy saver.
  • Interactive Customer Experience technology for the iPad .can use it to program wake up calls, order room service, order your car from valet parking or check your bill before you check out. But you can also use it to source Time Out to find out what’s going on in town or where to eat, or Open Table to make a restaurant reservation.

Technology and Innovation in Indian Hotel Industry

Hospitality industry is a customer-driven industry. The hotels need to offer services based on customer feedback.
Entering a sub-continental market the size of India growing at 13% per annum is a tempting prospect for any multinational hotel chain but it poses management challenges too.Therefore, the first challenge is to understand the expectations of consumers and their behavior.With 1.25 billion people united by diversity of languages, religious and social identities, Indian consumers may not appear a homogenous group.
Technology is playing a bigger role in designing a hotel. Earlier an interior decorator would never call an IT guy, but now things are different with technology in the lobby, at the reception, guestroom.

Marketing and brand building strategies for Indian markets will need to be savvy enough to capitalise on the behaviour of these digitally connected consumers. The use of SMS as a transactional instrument or viral marketing is phenomenal in India. Inevitably the hotels attract young and fresh graduates who in turn are well in tune with the modern upwardly mobile middle class business and professional consumers.
Strategic investment in branding, human capital and information systems suited to local needs and aspirations in India is an opportunity enveloped in transparent challenge.
A large number of Indian hospitality customers have an insatiable appetite for bandwidth fed by professional and social needs. They do not, therefore, like hotels without internet access and they hate when wi-fi is charged for!
