BANGKOK – Asia specialist travel group ICS has been busy online reassuring clients that there is light at the end of the coronavirus crisis.

It has sent out messages from its global executive team to encourage clients to stay safe and not to give up hope.

CEO Sandor Levai said, “I come from a family of strong resilient people and understand the importance of family ties. Let’s use this ‘break’ to re-evaluate our human relationships and appreciate what’s important in life.

“There is sunshine at the end of the tunnel, so get the sunglasses out.”

Said Mathieu Sneyers, director of marketing, ”This situation is deeply affecting everyone. The more we communicate, share information and help each other, the better positioned we will be when the world reopens. Stay home now and let’s travel later.”

Ian Paul Woods, ICS group business development director, added, “Over my 30 years in tourism I have learned to view the ups and downs as opportunities – to learn, develop, grow and eventually to emerge stronger than ever. Let’s help each other get through this.”
