Its been almost two years that the travel industry has been hit the hardest due to COVID 19. The latest being the Omicorn strain has already been traced in 4 states in the country so far.
Omicorn though spreading very fast, luckily it may be much milder though there is still research going on to come to this conclusion. The good part is, almost 90% of the country’s adult population has got at-least one dose of the vaccine. It is also encouraging to see that most hotels and resorts are doing roaring business in India and going packed. Travel companies are also seeing lot of traction in the past few months.
Most of us have been ardent fans of the travel industry and can’t even think of looking for different professions. However, can we at-least do things differently?
Even before COVID 19, some crisis or the other affects the travel business, in this century we have had the the Oil crisis, The Bird Flu, Iraq war, Volcanic ash terminating 000’s of flights for several days, the list goes on…
Travel companies are affected badly, the expenses are sky high, the margins getting thinner by day. It’s a daily struggle for one’s survival. So, how does one not only survive but thrive in this environment?
There are some ideas that I am currently exploring, which would reduce some pains of the travel industry, especially the travel agencies and tour operators.
Any ideas, thoughts or suggestions that you can come up with? It’s time to collaborate for the well being this industry. Please do write in!
