Air travel recovery – the sky’s the limit

with Dave Goodger, Stephen Rooney and Andrew Matters | Online | December 7, 2022

Air travel has continued to grow throughout 2022 as recovery from the pandemic has continued, including improvement in both domestic and international air travel. Growth to date has been largely fuelled by pent-up demand and accumulated savings but fundamental drivers of demand and affordability will become more important. In this session we will explore the growth outlook, opportunities and potential headwinds.

Economic headwinds hinder near-term air travel recovery

with Dave Goodger, Tourism Economics and Andrew Matters - Economic Advisor to IATA | Online | September 1, 2022

Rebound in air travel demand has faltered somewhat mid-year as economic headwinds are hindering growth.

We will explore these issues and our revised outlook with our partners at IATA.

Global uncertainties and the outlook for cities in Asia Pacific, Europe and North America

with Richard Holt and Scott McEwan | Online | July 19, 2022

2022 is proving to be yet another highly unpredictable year—but also one with large variations by global region and hence across different cities. Some are seeing strong tourism recoveries while others are struggling to emerge from lockdown. Some face manufacturing supply problems, while others are experiencing tech booms. Inflation is a major issue for many, but not all. In this webinar we will explore and explain the differences, and discuss how quickly, if at all, city economies will return to normal.

European travel recovery is underway despite risks – ETC 2022 Q2 trends and prospects

with Dave Goodger, Tourism Economics and Jennifer Iduh, ETC | Online | June 24, 2022

High inflation, including rising travel costs, and staff shortages are the two major risks threatening the ongoing recovery in European travel in 2022. In this session we will provide an overview of current trends and the outlook for European travel recovery this year. Within this, we will share the likely impacts from these headwinds as well as explaining why we believe these effects will be temporary and won’t derail growth, as well as the likelihood of more adverse outcomes.

Is the air travel recovery headed for turbulence?

with Dave Goodger, Tourism Economics, Stephen Rooney, Tourism Economics and Andrew Matters - Economic Advisor to IATA | Online | May 18, 2022

Air travel demand accelerated in early 2022 prompting expectations of a rapid acceleration into the northern hemisphere summer and suggesting that fears of a sharp Omicron-related fall were unfounded. However, concerns in many countries have now shifted towards the impacts of the Russian invasion of Ukraine which we will explore, along with our forecast partners at IATA, in this webinar. We will look at the path for recovery in the rest of the year and beyond as well as major risk factors.

Webinar
When will Chinese outbound travel return to prominence – and who will benefit?

with Dave Goodger and Michael Shoory | Online | March 16, 2022

Chinese borders remain closed to the majority of inbound and outbound travellers, despite many other borders across the world having re-opened. The restrictions on Chinese outbound travel, in particular, is of importance to the Travel & Tourism sector due to the prominence of China as a source market. Prior to the pandemic, China had grown to become the largest source market for international travel spending and was a major source market for destinations around the globe, especially those elsewhere in Asia-Pacific. This webinar will look at how China’s tighter restrictions may limit the travel recovery for many destinations, when we can expect China to return to its pre-pandemic prominence as a source market, and who will benefit the most once Chinese travellers return. We will also illustrate what would be required for destination recovery from other source markets while Chinese travellers remain absent.

Will overtourism problems return for cities?

with Dave Goodger and Kieran Ferran | Online | February 15, 2022

Prior to the pandemic, overtourism was among the biggest concerns for city destinations. Travel volumes have since fallen sharply but there has also been a clear shift in demand preferences towards more rural or coastal destinations. We will consider the extent to which this may persist in coming years as both leisure and business travel recovers and the implications for major city destinations.

European tourism recovery to continue apace in 2022 – ETC 2021 Q4 trends and prospects

with Dave Goodger and Adam Sacks | Online | January 27, 2022

Cross-border travel recovery has stalled during winter months following the re-imposition of some travel restrictions and lockdown measures following the emergence of the Omicron variant. However, restrictions are not as limiting as in previous waves and will also be lifted sooner to allow a resumption of travel growth. In this webinar we will explore the latest data and travel trends, including prospects for the resumption of intra-European and long-haul travel with a focus on the expected importance of transatlantic travel for various destinations in coming years.

Reasons for cautious optimism as air travel re-starts (Air Passenger Forecast update)

Online | July 28, 2021

Travel remains restricted in many countries around the world, but an increasing number of routes are starting to open up. We will discuss the extent to which an easing of restrictions is likely in the second half of this year and beyond; on which types of route this is most likely; how much this restored capacity will be supported by passenger demand; and major risks to the outlook. Current trends will be described as well as the key drivers of demand for both a short- and longer-run outlook. Major risk factors and reasons for some continued caution in the outlook, including the potential proliferation of new variants, will also be highlighted.

City tourism: the slow road to recovery

Online | May 27, 2021

City destinations have been harder hit by the pandemic to date due to a typical reliance on more international and business travel while leisure travellers have sought out less crowded destinations, with more available outdoor activities in the early stages of recovery. Current impacts and expected future trends will be discussed in this session, looking at cities relative to wider travel demand, as well as a ranking of top destination cities.

Will air travel take off again in 2021

Online | April 27, 2021

Tentative recovery in air travel is still set to begin in 2021, but more slowly than in earlier forecasts and growth is far from uniform across markets. Vaccine roll-out is continuing, but the slow and uneven pace highlights that vaccinations alone will not be sufficient to fully restore pre-pandemic trends. The outlook and risks will be discussed by country and region, along with key drivers for growth.

Online | February 3, 2021

However, there remain significant risks in the outlook, including from the new variants of the virus, while vaccinations alone may not be sufficient to fully restore traveler confidence.
