The United Nations World Tourism Organisation has launched a new campaign in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, #TravelTomorrow. The phrase will become the common thread that runs through the response to the current crisis, highlighting the enduring values of tourism.
Etihad Airways will partner with Australian company Elenium Automation to trial new technology which allows self-service devices at airports to be used to help identify travellers with medical conditions.
Governments are asked to use the coronavirus crisis to embed social and environmental conditions, with enhanced protection for workers and a planned transition towards what the campaign group Stay Grounded calls “climate-just mobility”.
Nearly 5,000 hospitality industry professionals have already registered to attend Hospitality Tomorrow, a free online summit, taking place later today. The event will discuss the impact of the Covid-19 crisis on the hospitality industry.
