The UK is the hottest place, according to a new report. Booking has increased since the country lifted its Govt restrictions.
Forget Spain, now England is important. If one is to believe the new report from the Mastercard Economics Institute showing the travel trends this year.
The hottest place in Britain
Since March, the UK has advanced ahead of Spain as the hottest destination for European travelers. Bloomberg writes.
This is partly due to the fact that travel restrictions in the country were lifted after 2 years, which included costly Govt tests and isolation rules. A testament to the fact that people want to travel freely.
With the disappearance of the rules, air travel to the UK increased – from 59 per cent in 2019 – to 40 per cent in about six weeks before the start of the Govt. More travelers to the UK come from the Middle East and Africa than any other country except Europe.
2022 is undoubtedly the year we travel back.
“If air bookings continue at their current pace, there will be 1.5 billion more passengers worldwide in 2022 than last year,” the report said.
Europe sees the biggest bookings
Europe will see the biggest increase, with 550 million more aircraft bookings expected this year than last.
At the same time, expect more expensive flights into Europe this summer. Demand for this specialty has grown significantly as a result of recent corporate scandals.
As inflation and many others fall into their wallets, it is uncertain how much they will spend on things like travel.
