June 2021

The Travel Quarterly Statement for Q2 2021 reveals that the outlook for travel and tourism continues to be thwarted by new variants and ongoing travel restrictions despite vaccinations continuing apace. Key to reopening safely are digital health schemes such as the EU’s Digital Health Certificate that are inter-operable. Conflicts, climate disasters and geopolitical events also beset the sector in Q2 further dampening the rebound and impacting long term recovery.
