  • Governments must work together to guarantee long-term sustainable growth of Travel & Tourism

    Governments need to work collegiately and take a long-term view of the economic importance of Travel & Tourism to ensure the sustainable growth of the industry. That is the message from Mr. David Scowsill, President & CEO of the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), who is speaking on the occasion of the 98th UNWTO Executive Council.

    Speaking in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, Mr Scowsill says, for Travel & Tourism to grow in a sustainable and successful way, governments need to be better coordinated and to engage properly with the private sector; “WTTC understands the limitations faced by some government departments responsible for Travel & Tourism, whose influence and decision-making power is often limited and competes against other stronger elements in government. But for visa facilitation and infrastructure projects to work for the sector, and for true transport connectivity to be realised, this requires understanding and support across many government ministries. Our Members frequently tell us of the need for governments to take a long term view \" often one that will stretch for periods beyond the length of individual government terms of office”.

    Mr Scowsill set out the economic importance of the industry worldwide, explaining that it accounts for 9% of GDP, a $7 trillion contribution to the global economy and 266 million jobs.

    Speaking on the occasion of World Environment Day, Mr Scowsill emphasised that the industry needs to be proactive about ensuring benefits for all; “We need to prove that we a Force for Good and not a ‘force for destruction’ as many critics fear we may become. We must embrace our belief in Tourism for Tomorrow. Our standards of ethics and sustainability must be of the highest order”.

    “The Travel & Tourism Industry cannot hope that someone else will solve the world’s problems. Most importantly, it is time to stop talking and start acting. The sector needs to focus consciously on whether it wants to be ‘just good enough’ or become a ‘leader’ in sustainability. This requires concerted action and coordinated commitment from both the public and private sectors”.

  • Advancing innovation and talent development in tourism and air travel is the core component of the first Memorandum of Understanding signed between UNWTO and The International Air Transport Association (IATA). The MOU is part of the objectives set by both organizations of bringing the tourism and air transport agendas closer together (Madrid, Spain, 10 June 2014).

    UNWTO and IATA have formally agreed to jointly advocate for innovation and talent development in the public and private sectors as a means to promote competitive and sustainable tourism development, with a particular focus on the air transport industry.

    In line with the agreement, IATA will support the creation of a new category within the UNWTO Awards for Excellence and Innovation in Tourism, which will recognize innovation in marketing, product development with the objective to enhance connectivity and increase travel accessibility by airlines, travel agents and other travel and tourism companies. IATA will also be a leading implementing partner in the UNWTO Knowledge Network Talent Development initiative, which aims to support young talents in the tourism sector through internships, knowledge transfer and research.

    “This agreement is an important step to further strengthen our close relationship with IATA, a valued Affiliate Member of UNWTO” said Carlos Vogeler, UNWTO Executive-Secretary of Member Relations, on the occasion of the signing. “Air travel is a key driver of tourism development around the world and we are looking forward to joining forces with IATA in promoting the important innovations spurred by travel companies and further fostering young talents in the tourism and air transport sectors”.

    The head of the IATA Global Partnership and the Travel & Tourism Unit, Ismail Albaidhani, highlighted the strong linkages between air transport and tourism. ”Passenger experiences expand beyond the travel by air, involving other tourism components including tour operators, car rentals, railway companies as well as hotels”, he said. “IATA works with over 60,000 travel and tourism organizations offering a solutions portfolio ranging from professional identification, digital coding and training products, to financial, billing and settlement services. We are now working very closely with UNWTO to strengthen the collaboration between the various travel and tourism value-chain partners, and today’s important agreement establishes a solid platform to launch crucial joint-industry initiatives worldwide”, he added.

    On the occasion, UNWTO and IATA further agreed to organize a joint event on air travel and tourism value chains to be held next January in the framework of the UNWTO Awards taking place in Madrid, Spain.

 Kerala Tourism Secretary Mr Suman Billa said the exclusive discounted fare package to travellers during the peak season has taken domestic tourism to a new level by eliminating the pressures of the market..

 “The new scheme of Kerala Tourism sends out a clear message that there is now unconditional freedom for the traveller to discover new destinations and experiences,” he added.

 Kerala Tourism Director Mr Sheik Pareeth said the MoU is expected to help cement Kerala’s reputation as a top tourist destination among both international visitors and the increasingly travel-savvy Indians.

“We appreciate the support from our partners in the aviation industry and the travel and hospitality sector in helping provide a hassle-free and enjoyable Kerala experience for our guests,” he said.

GoAir Vice-President, Mr. Manoj Dharmani said, “Our aim is to positively participate in the growth of tourism in God's Own Country. We are hoping to bring more tourists, especially from North India to Kerala, which is he described as a “much-sought after dream destination”.

“At present, GoAir has daily flights between Kochi and Mumbai; and from Mumbai they get connected to other parts of India. GoAir’s double daily service between Mumbai and Kochi strives to boost tourism and business in the state. Since tourism is growing nationally and internationally, both the Kerala Government and GoAir stand to gain by signing this agreement. Our partnership clearly highlights our commitment to the domestic tourism sector and we are delighted to be associated with Kerala”he added.

Air Transport and Tourism to Grow Together

The 2013 UNWTO and WTM Ministers´ Summit at the World Travel Market (WTM) will put a spotlight on the essential connection between air transport and tourism, debating the challenges and opportunities of promoting higher policy coordination between aviation and tourism.

Air transport, being an important factor in outbound or inbound tourism, plays a vital role in foreign tourist arrival in India. Therefore, the discussions on the matter must be considered as important for the tourism industry in the country. New alliances with tourism boards and airlines all around the world is needed  to boost the business. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) called on all partners and stakeholders involved in passenger travel to work together to deliver greater value to passengers. This is a remarkable decision that will encourage travellers all around the world to visit foreign countries.

Air travel is one of the major part, travellers worried about in their journey. Addressing their issues is the most important thing for the sector to grow their business. According to IATA Director General and CEO, Mr. Tony Tyler, Aviation makes possible $2.2 trillion worth of economic activity and supports about 57 million jobs around the globe. Every day more than 8 million passengers take advantage of the safety, speed and convenience of air travel. Therefore, any new strategy implemented will work as a catalyst that makes big changes.

The alliances by airlines also play a major part in air transport. The recent joining of Qatar Airways in “Oneworld” shows a positive approach by major airlines that hold major part of the market share. These alliances give the consumer better offers, which encourage them to travel frequently. The initiatives by WTM and IATA are expected to give new possibilities for air transport and tourism to grow together. Let's hope for a better connected world that encourages people to travel and make the tourism industry to grow to a new level.
