Tokyo 2020 to be postponed to 2021

Despite setting a four-week deadline to deliberate on the fate of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games on Sunday, Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe and International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach have just announced their agreement to push the event to the summer of 2021.

Earlier today, outbound agents told TTG Asia that they hoped for a quicker, clearer decision on the fate of the Games so as to facilitate ticket refunds, where needed, or rearrangements of travel programmes that were crafted and booked in better times.

Tokyo 2020 will now have up to a year of postponement
