The travel industry will not survive without radical action over a coronavirus second wave

T

he tourism and outbound travel industries are no strangers to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Across the globe, international and domestic travel has been brought to its knees by the far-reaching impacts of coronavirus, and the ramifications are no clearer than in the United Kingdom.  

In the last month alone, we have seen the collapse of established household names such as STA, the loss of over 1,000 frontline jobs from Gatwick Airport, and multi-national airlines teetering on the brink of administration.

The economic magnitude of the travel industry is often misunderstood. The outbound travel sector alone sustains around 220,000 jobs in the UK and is worth over £37bn. The sector is a fundamentally vital cog in the UK economy and needs to be leveraged with full force as we traverse one of the most difficult recessions in recent history.
