MANAGING in the

NEW WORLD

Like every other player in the hospitality sector, affected by the ongoing pandemic, Airbnb too will need to rework its operations in order to thrive in this new order. As a result, the company is coming up with a new hygiene protocol, in order to lure the travellers. There is a fear that hotels could now turn out to be more attractive, as Airbnb outlets could be considered less hygienically sound. A new “Advanced Cleaning Initiative” has been developed on the recommendations of the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). There will also from now on, be a mandatory minimum interval time between all rentals. Airbnb also did its reputation a lot of good, after pledging its properties in several markets for the healthcare workers and as quarantine facilities to fight the corona virus pandemic. Marketing research conducted by the Air DNA outlined how Airbnb lost about a billion dollars through booking shortfalls, aided further by cancellations.

The hotel industry in Spain, like in several other countries, is going through a terrible crisis right now. But experts working with the tourism consulting wing of CBRE, claim that by the year 2022, the same will return back to the highs of the pre- COVID- 19 levels. This year though there is no reprieve, with Exceltur’s internal marketing research projecting a staggering eighty- one percent drop in tourism activities. This could in turn affect up to one- hundred and fifty million Euros worth of business. One important task ahead for industry members has to be, the fixing of Brand Spain. The hope is that in coastal and leisure areas, the recovery would be quicker. Domestic tourism would also contribute to some boost, with maximum Spaniards visiting Andalusia, followed by Catalonia. Some areas such as the Canary Islands, Costa del Sol, Costa Brava and the Balearic Islands will have to hit back with competitive pricing. A lot will also depend on destination diversification.

The ongoing corona virus is likely to make travelling a luxury once again, as it was until quite recently in human history. Conversely, there may be positive impacts on the planet and the fight against climate change. Business research conducted by the University of Florida, affirms that the tourism industry will shrink this year. It also states that more than three- fifths of travellers will consciously curtail their travel plans in 2020. Individual travels will now have more value. Countries will be increasingly reliant on wealthy visitors. This was always the case with New Zealand, Bhutan, Tanzania and in Botswana, but set to spread to other parts as well. Many people could lose their jobs in the impending economic crisis, so holidays will get out of their budgets. Cruise travel could be hit hardest in terms of a price rise.

The World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), has now affirmed that there may be a loss of a staggering hundred- million tourism jobs thanks to the pandemic and its related outcomes. This sector will in fact be hardest hit in the wealthiest of countries, with about a third of the job losses expected to be in the G 20 countries. The WTTC further notes that it is only the G 20 that has the power to curb this onslaught. Among continents, it is Asia that will suffer the most, followed by the Americas and Europe. The travel and tourism industry, at present accounts for about a tenth of the global GDP, and this will be severely impacted.

The COVID- 19 pandemic has already triggered an enormous human and financial crisis, but there may be more to it. Experts from the tourism industry believe that even if the worst of suffering may soon get over, the industry will struggle long to recover its past lustre. The tourism operators’ union communicated via its website that Italy could get its inbound tourist numbers reduced to its low of the mid 1960s’ level. Back then, air travel was much more expensive. The world was also divided into blocs thanks to the Cold War. This limited the inter- bloc travel. A total of three million tourism jobs are there are present in Italy, with the sector contributing to about thirteen percent of the national GDP. Beach tourism has especially been hit hard. This will impact about thirty- thousand small companies operating in this segment.
