The Skift Travel Health Index shows that all regions have recovered, but Europe's travel revival appears to be rather slow. With 17 out of 22 countries having fully recovered and Europe being a popular summer hotspot, the global travel industry has geared up for a bright summer season.
The Skift Travel Health Index indicates a bright tourism outlook this summer. The latest June 2023 Highlights Report shows global travel performance outpacing 2019 levels by 4 percentage points. The index now stands at 104, gaining 1 point over the previous month.
All Regions Have Recovered
Although some regions appear to have slowed down over the last month, all regions covered have achieved full recovery to pre-pandemic levels.
|Regions||Jan-23||Feb-23||Mar-23||Apr-23||May-23||Jun-23||MoM Growth (abs)|
|Middle East and Africa||98||102||100||102||109||104||-5|
Although Europe has rebounded, the region’s travel revival remains sluggish, largely because of Russia.
The travel recovery has been fueled by high prices across the European lodging industry. However, 24% of European travelers worry about the overall rise in trip costs, while 17% are concerned with the economic situation and personal finances.
