Confidence in Air Travel & Tourism Post COVID-19
July 16 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
COVID-19 has affected air transport industries all over the world. Travelers had to abruptly stop flying overseas due to restrictions imposed by governments to contain the spread of the virus.
The industry foresees that passengers will hesitate to resume travel by air even after travel restrictions are lifted. According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), “Passenger confidence will suffer a double whammy even after the pandemic is contained—hit by personal economic concerns in the face of a looming recession on top of lingering concerns about the safety of travel”. Early indications of this cautious return-to-travel behavior have been seen in the domestic markets of China and Australia, even after new coronavirus infection rates fell to very low levels.
Based on the findings of a research project, this webinar will provide insights into Singapore residents’ perspectives of air travel post COVID-19 and their confidence to travel after restrictions are lifted. Join our speaker, Dr Eliver Lin from the Singapore Institute of Technology, to find out more about what factors are affecting their confidence level; the effectiveness of different measures to relieve passengers’ worries; and which market(s) with more confidence in air travel.
