Amadeus looks into the crystal ball to see what the travel industry can expect for next year.
AFTER almost two years of being grounded people are keen to travel again as borders in many countries reopen to the fully vaccinated, leading to a rise in searches and bookings.
The Amadeus 2022 Travel Trends revealed substantial increases in searches for trips to once-in-a-lifetime destinations, as well as some interesting new search and flight locations. One is an emerging boom in demand for statement tourism – from flight searches up by one third to Tanzania, a country famous for safaris, to flights doubling to cities close to the home of the Incas, Machu Picchu.
The travel technology company has identified six key trends that “will shake up the travel space in 2022,” said Dan Batchelor, vice president, global corporate communications & social responsibility at Amadeus.
