Global travel recovery doesn’t seem too far. The Skift Travel Health Index witnessed a month-on-month uptick of 4 percentage points in February 2023 and now stands at 93. The company anticipates this year to bring recovery and growth to the travel industry.

Key takeaways

  • The Asia Pacific region which had been the “black sheep” for a long time displayed speedy recovery. As of February 2023, travel performance in the Asia Pacific region overtook Europe;
  • Hotels have adopted strong pricing strategy to drive recovery. The re-opening of China also boosted sales volumes for Southeast Asian countries.
