Check the latest update related to the Long-Haul Travellers’ sentiment towards Europe
Long-haul travel was a key driver of growth for the European tourism sector in the years before the COVID-19 pandemic but has been severely impacted since then. 2021 saw the start of a recovery, especially from the US market. In 2022, the global vaccine roll-outs will help Europe regain some of its prior prominence in terms of the importance of long-haul travel, though the full recovery will take some time. According to the latest Long-Haul Travel Barometer (LHTB) 1/2022 powered by TCI RESEARCH, the intention for overseas travel to Europe has begun to improve, while travel restrictions can be seen as one of the leading factors causing travel hesitancy.
