BRIEFS: POST-RECOVERY TRAVEL TRENDS; EOS HOSPITALITY ADDS IN FLORIDA KEYS

Post-recovery travel trends: Post-recovery travel has changed, with “revenge travel” — with the purpose of making up for lost time — emerging as a phenomenon and two-thirds of respondents stating that travel will return to pre-pandemic levels by the end of 2024, revealed the findings of the ‘Mapping Travel’s New Normal’ study commissioned by Sabre Corp., Southlake, Texas, and carried out by Munich-based management consultancy Dr. Fried & Partners. One-third of the respondents, decision makers from airlines and travel agencies, expect travel to return to pre-COVID levels in 2025 or beyond. Around 68% of travel leaders predicted a higher spend from consumers on their future travel plans. About 82% of airline executives expected the combination of leisure and business to be more prominent after recovery. More than half of the agencies said they were spending more time looking into new tools, technologies and services, a particular area of focus in APAC, for 71% of responding agencies. About 92% of the agencies said they sought the support of travel technology partners to develop a more seamless experience, while 89% said they wanted tools to help personalize travel. Key trends identified by agencies included the significance of connected and organized trips to eliminate travel complexities for customers, the existing prominence of domestic and regional travel and the challenges and opportunities for business travel recovery. Key trends identified by airlines included rising consumer bookings protection, growth of “bleisure” as a catalyst for potential corporate travel recovery and offering more sustainable flight options to meet demands.EOS Hospitality adds 2 in Florida Keys: EOS Hospitality, New York City, will manage Havana Cabana at Key West and Tranquility Bay Beachfront Hotel and Resort in the Florida Keys.
