COVID-19: Reactivation guide
The world is finally getting out of this hard pandemic period. As hotels are reopening their doors to guests, we would like to offer our partners some tips and insights to prepare for the reactivation of the demand.
While the first part of 2021 has been showing slow recovery, the decrease of COVID-19 cases in major destinations, the acceleration in vaccinations, and reduction in restrictions from local governments offers a positive forecast for the Summer. The worldwide air seats capacity recovery is happening right now!
