Since the 21st century, we are more globally connected than we have ever been. International travellers easily step into an airplane and fly overseas, where an open border welcomes them. It has become so common, that when the pandemic hit, we had to adapt to a totally new world. To tackle the Covid-19, many countries imposed entry restrictions and border closures, which caused an unprecedented 65% decrease in international travel during the first half of the year (UNWTO, 2020).
The current situation forces us to adapt to the new reality, as travelling will likely be profoundly different for the foreseeable future. In this webinar, we will be taking a closer look at the topic of international travel and answer complex questions. How to travel safely during Covid-19? How to plan future trips in the post-Covid travel world? Is there a need to cut down on air travel to reduce the chances of getting infected by the Covid-19?
We are honoured to have Heiko Brix (Director Sales Southeast Asia & Pacific at Lufthansa Group), Vinoop Goel (Director of Airports & External Relations APAC at IATA), Mike Tansey (Growth Markets Travel Leader at Accenture), Sascha Fuls (General Manager at OVD Kinegram (Asia Pacific) Pte Ltd) sharing their insights about this captivating and highly important topic. The webinar will be moderated by Meera Jane Navaratnam, Growth Strategist at ?WhatIf!, an Accenture company.
Join the first session of the international travel trilogy which will give you a general view of the current travel restrictions.
