The Covid-19 pandemic has halted global travel on a scale never seen before. But as glimmers of hope begin to emerge, the industry needs to be poised for a rebound. As international borders slowly start to reopen, there are two key questions top of mind for the industry: What does recovery look like, and when will traveler confidence return?

Travelport, a leading travel technology company, has partnered with a number of industry executives in the airline and travel management sectors to host a Recovery Trends in Travel webinar on July 8, 2020. Travel supplier speakers include IHG, as well as Singapore, Southwest, and Korean Airlines, Fox World, UOB and Skylord will represent travel agency perspectives. The series will discuss emerging regional data trends on the industry’s rebound and offer different perspectives on what the future of travel looks like in a post-coronavirus world.


“The travel industry is no stranger to disruption and is incredibly resilient. It will recover,” said Travelport CEO Greg Webb. Never has this been more true. In fact, the U.S. and China remain the stand-out performers in travel recovery. According to Skift’s Travel’s Reopening Timeline, a number of airlines have announced when flights will be restored, hotels are reopening in some regions, and momentum is building around the return of business travel. Further, new safety protocols particularly for airlines and tour operators continue to dominate headlines, while demand for domestic leisure travel increases.

So how can airlines, online travel agencies, and travel management companies prepare for travel’s great return and remain competitive in a rapidly changing environment? With data-driven insights and analysis from Travelport and its partners, this webinar explores the most-asked questions about the global travel industry’s recovery.
