TravelCLICK reported that Asia-Pacific room nights booked electronically through the Global Distribution Systems (GDS) and key Internet sites dropped 19.6% in the second quarter of 2003 versus the same quarter last year. In comparison, worldwide electronic room night bookings were stable, showing a 0.1% increase for the second quarter of 2003 versus the second quarter of 2002.

The average daily rate (ADR) for the Asia-Pacific region was $114.69, a decline of 6.7% versus the same quarter last year.

TravelCLICK`s reports are compiled from its comprehensive database, which is the exclusive source of hotel industry electronic distribution data from the Abacus/Infini, Axess, Amadeus, Galileo, Sabre, and Worldspan GDS. TravelCLICK`s data also includes consumer online hotel bookings made through many of the major Internet travel sites, now including those powered by Pegasus Solutions.

Top Asia-Pacific Destination Markets – Second Quarter

The top 10 destination markets for total electronic room nights in Asia-Pacific during the second quarter of 2003 were, in order:

SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) continued to impact demand in key locations across Asia-Pacific. Tokyo, Singapore and Bangkok show further declines in room nights, as well as Hong Kong and Beijing, which dropped out of the top ten cities, said Jan Tissera, vice president of international sales for TravelCLICK. Since the World Health Organization lifted the travel advisory on Beijing, Hong Kong and Singapore on 24 June, 2003, we expect to begin seeing recovery in these cities as early as third quarter.
