The last quarter of the world of tourism.

I always like to compare and analyze the behavior of tourism worldwide. Today I bring you the indicators carried out by the World Tourism Organization for fall of 2021.

These indicators help us to determine the future actions to take into account as a corporate travel manager.

The variations are notable as the recovery due to international tourist arrivals in the first seven months of 2021 which was 40% below 2020 levels, and is still 80% lower when compared to the same period in the year 2019 prior to the pandemic. This impulse was due to vaccinations and the reopening of borders.

In destinations located in Europe and America, this improvement was notable. The modification of travel restrictions for vaccinated travelers, together with the application of COVID-19 vaccines, contributed to the tourism sector.

The small islands of the Caribbean, Africa, Asia and the Pacific, reported a return in July (-67%) and June (-77%), thus making it the best month since April 2020.
In the cases of Asia and the Pacific, they reported a 95% drop in international arrivals compared to the same period in 2019.
Although destinations continued to report fairly low international tourism revenues in the first seven months of 2021, others reported that they exceeded 2019 revenues.

Despite the timid improvement in 2020, international tourism remained well below 2019 levels.
These behavioral readings invite us to reflect on the future. Most experts hope for a good performance in 2022, driven by a repressed demand by many factors specific to each country which influences an international community.
