Travel with Care


Covid-19 has undoubtedly devastated the travel industry and changed the ways we would travel in the foreseeable future. 100 million travel sector jobs has been lost, according to one global estimate. Use of U.S. airlines is down 95 percent, while international travel revenues would decrease by more than $300 billion. Safety issues concerning travels are at the forefront as the desire to travel remains. The most pressing questions about future travels concern coordination of social distancing measures, testing and healthcare strategies, space and distance creations, as well as innovative procedures for travelers and industry providers alike.

Many travel providers have implemented necessary redesigns to ensure or improve safe travels. Testing, health screening, control of space-per-passenger ratios, and a redesign of passenger flow or even airport layouts are some of the changes we will witness when we eventual get to travel. Expansive new airports will offer passengers more space; airports without the capacity to expand horizontally may expand vertically. Furthermore, gate space will be widened, and robots may be used to load carry-ons. Disinfection protocols will be in place, and travel industry personnel or travelers will be expected to don personal protective equipment or masks.

Travel avenues and destinations are likely to transform. Road tripping offers a sense of freedom with personal controls and could be on the rise. Travel industry suppliers offer more flexibility, more discounts and better rates; listings for accommodations will indicate whether operators/hosts are practicing stringent cleaning/distancing guidelines, including a minimum 24-hour waiting period between bookings. Hygiene and cleanliness will become the new rating criteria whereas typically food or the view from a hotel room drives the sales. More touchless check-in via apps and drive-up motel rooms will gain popularity. Many national parks and remote outdoor areas are attracting record numbers. People touring these destinations will seek personal space, cleanliness and fresh air.

As international travel is considered riskier and unpredictable, it will become even more time-consuming and expensive. As a result, domestic tourism as well as private/remote tours will experience a boost. New opportunities lie in times of crises, and so plan and adjust according to changes. Prepare carefully and wisely for a time when things reopen and recover.

小心旅行

新型冠状病毒无疑摧毁了旅游业,并改变了我们在可预见的未来中旅行的方式。据一项全球的估计,旅游业失去了1亿个工作岗位。美国航空公司的使用量下降了95%,而国际旅行将出现超过3,000亿美元的降低收入额。由于人们仍然渴望旅行,与旅行有关的安全问题将至关重要。关于未来旅行的最紧迫的议题涉及社会疏远措施、测试和医疗策略、空间和距离的创造以及旅行者和旅行业者的创新程序之间的协调。

许多旅行业者已经进行了必要的重新设计,以确保或改善旅行安全。测试、健康检查、乘客空间的控制、旅客流量甚至机场布局的重新设计,都是我们最终会看到的一些变化。庞大的新机场将为旅客提供更多的空间;没有地面扩展能力的机场可能会将往上加盖而扩展所需空间。此外,闸门的空间将扩大,并且可以使用机器人来装载乘客的行李箱子。消毒措施也将成为惯性作业,而旅游业人员或旅行者则应穿戴个人防护设备或口罩。

旅行的途径和目的地可能会改变。公路旅行可通过人为控制提供自由感,开车旅行的趋势可能会增加。旅游业者提供了更大的行程安排的弹性、更多的折扣和更优惠的价格;住宿方面的要求将着重于指示运营商/房主是否遵守严格的清洁/疏散准则,包括不同房客预订一房之间距离最少24小时等待时间的原则。卫生和清洁将成为新的评估标准,不似以往由餐饮或酒店客房的景观来推动销售。通过应用程序和自动驾驶汽车旅馆进行的更多非接触式的入住方式将越来越受欢迎。许多国家公园和偏远的室外地区吸引了创纪录的人数。游览这些目的地的人们将寻求个人空间、清洁和新鲜的空气。由于国际旅行被认为是危险和不可预测的,它将变得更加耗时和昂贵。反之,国内旅游以及私人/远程旅游将较受欢迎。在危机时刻存在新的机会,因此我们必须根据时势变化进行计划和调整。在世界重新开放渐渐恢复正常状况时,请谨慎而明智地进行准备。
