Holiday and Design
In the last two years we have experienced many changes. Above all, our way of traveling has changed. We traveled for work or for tourism, to meet people or to treat ourselves to a much-needed break from our routines, all while discovering new cultures surrounded by breathtaking views.
Suddenly, with the pandemic, everything changed. The air transport industry lost over $118 billion in 2020. One of the biggest collapses was evident in international flights, which saw an annual reduction of over 80%. Italy recorded a decrease of 72.5%, with peak decreases of over 90%.
However, the desire to leave has not been lacking. European-wide research on the propensity to travel highlights how 76% of respondents said they had booked, or wanted to book, a trip in 2021. This trend has also been confirmed in Italy, where 3 out of 4 Italians say they are ready to travel as soon as possible to make up for lost time. People are willing to move around even if they have to change their habits.
