The travel industry is soaring to new heights

Two years after the global economy began its gradual reopening, the sector is flourishing, and its long-term prospects are highly promising

Aug 31, 2023

The optimism surrounding the travel sector isn't solely due to the surge in demand. Throughout the pandemic, the industry navigated the challenges by significantly reducing its capacity and divesting assets. Even as economies embarked on reopening, most companies exercised caution. This cautious approach led to imbalances, resulting in scarcities across various areas such as accommodations and flights, consequently driving prices to unprecedented levels.
