Covid-19's Impact on Travel Worldwide 

Learn how the global pandemic is affecting the travel industry, including where, how and why people are traveling.

The travel industry was hit hard by Covid-19 as borders closed and regions went into lockdown. As some restrictions ease and people feel more comfortable venturing beyond their homes, travel is showing early signs of recovery.

This report, the second in our Recovery Insights series, provides an in-depth analysis of the global travel story from the air and the ground.

Once the Covid-19 journey is over, the story won’t be so much about how people stopped traveling. Rather, it will be about how their travel behaviors changed along the way.
