Travel’s Reopening: Coronavirus Recovery

Travel's Reopening: Coronavirus Recovery

What will travel look like during summer 2021?

Let’s Focus on the Numbers

We’ve entered the second year of the global coronavirus pandemic and vaccination progress in many countries including the United States, United Kingdom, and others offer bright spots, as do effective containment measures in places including APAC countries. Vaccine passports are making progress in fits and starts around the world.

Travel’s making a fast recovery in the U.S. domestically, in hotel occupancy, in online searches and booking, in airline passengers numbers, sold-out short-term rentals, and more.

To adequately cover the travel industry’s move to reopen we’ll be keeping track of our news stories as well as those outside of Skift with our new liveblog, below.
