About a fifth of travellers judged service on their fall trips as below pre-pandemic levels.
Amir Eylon, president of Longwoods International, observed that: “The travel industry is proving to be nimble in providing excellent customer service at this phase of the pandemic, despite the labor shortages, COVID-19 restrictions and demand challenges the industry faces.”

The impact of COVID-19 on travel planning remains near pandemic lows. Only a quarter of travellers report that coronavirus will great impact their decision to travel in the next six months.
