Global Air Travel Set to Bounce Back 65% in Third Quarter 

The summer travel outlook report, produced for the World Travel Market (WTM) by ForwardKeys, reveals that in the third quarter of the year, July, August and September, global air travel is set to reach 65% of where it was before the pandemic in 2019. 

However, the revival is patchy, with some parts of the world doing much better than others and some types of travel, particularly beach holidays, being much more popular than urban city visits and sightseeing.

The region of the world that is on course to recover most strongly is Africa & the Middle East; its arrivals in Q3 are expected to reach 83% of 2019 levels. It is followed by the Americas, where summer arrivals are expected to reach 76%, and then by Europe, 71%, and Asia Pacific, just 35%.

The current preference for beach holidays is well illustrated by a comparison of the top ten beach and urban destinations in Europe, ranked by Q3 flight bookings compared to 2019. All those in the beach list, which is led by Antalya, 81% ahead, Tirana, 36% ahead and Mykonos, 29% ahead, are showing extremely healthy demand, whereas, in the urban list, only Naples is ahead. 

Furthermore, the four leading urban destinations, Naples, 5% ahead, Istanbul, flat, Athens, 5% behind, and Lisbon, 8% behind, are all also gateways to beach resorts too.

A similar trend is exhibited in the Americas, where Q3 bookings for air travel to the Caribbean, Central America and Mexico are 5% ahead of 2019 levels, whereas flight bookings to South America and to the US and Canada are, respectively, 25% and 31% behind. The destinations which are set to perform most strongly are Costa Rica, 24% ahead, Jamaica, 17% ahead and the Dominican Republic, 13% ahead.

Enthusiasm to travel again internationally is so strong that a rise in air fares has done relatively little to dampen demand. For example, the average fare from the US to Europe climbed by over 35% between January and May with no noticeable slowing in booking rates. 

And these fares were nearly 60% above the previous year. Fares for shorter haul, intraregional travel (ie: within the Americas) also increased substantially, by 47%, which is less than for long haul. However, the demand for those tickets peaked in March.

Helpfully for the travel industry and for many destinations, American travelers are planning to stay longer and spend more than they did in 2019 but not as much as they did during the pandemic. 

The average planned length of stay in Q3 is 12 days, up from 11 days in 2019. Last year, it was 16 days, but fewer people, with a more affluent profile, were traveling then. The proportion of people flying in premium cabin classes in Q3 is also set to rise, from 12% in 2019 to 15% this year. The relatively promising outlook for summer travel to Africa and the Middle East is due to a combination of factors. Several Middle Eastern airports act as hubs for travel between Asia Pacific and Europe, which has led to the Middle East benefiting from the revival of intercontinental travel, particularly driven by people returning to Asian countries to visit friends and relatives. The closure of Russian airspace has also contributed to the uplift in hub traffic. Cairo, 23% ahead, has increased connectivity to European markets. Nigeria, 14% ahead, Ghana, 8% ahead, and Ivory Coast, 1% ahead, with large diasporas in Europe and the US, are seeing expats return to visit friends and family. Tanzania, 3% ahead, Cape Verde, flat and the Seychelles, just 2% behind, are successfully attracting long haul visitors from Europe

Dublin-Seattle Route Recommencing in May 

Aer Lingus will reinstate its direct flight route from Dublin to Seattle on 26th May. The five-times a week service will fly into Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, which will unveil an expanded international arrivals facility this spring. Improvements include eight new gates, increasing passenger capacity and reducing connection time, and a new aerial walkway connecting passengers to the South Satellite terminal. From world-class museums and galleries to farm-to-fork restaurants and indie boutique shops, there’s plenty for Irish travellers to enjoy in Seattle.

Irish Tourism Comes Calling In Halifax – Unravel Travel TV

Irish Tourism is on the move. Inspired by a 16% increase in visitors in 2017, representatives from 13 partner firms hosted an evening for Halifax-based travel agents in the Great Hall of the Dalhousie University Club. The Great Hall was a fitting setting since its two-and-a-half-story-high vaulted ceiling and minstrel’s gallery has an old-world, medieval castle-like feel.

The message was Ireland is what you imagine and much more. And its growth in tourism shows how on-point it is for the prime travel motivators for all demographics.

Sandra Moffatt, director of marketing promoted the high access to the country, the volume of ready-to-sell packages and ability to customize itineraries, authentic experiences, and the wide range of local experts to enhance any experience, the food and hospitality. She also noted that Ireland isn’t a summer-, winter- or three-season destination. It’s a year-round destination. One of the presenting partners, Siobhan Byrne Learat, from Adams & Butler, told the group, “In Ireland we don’t have summer and winter clothes. We have clothes. We wear them year round.”

Moffatt also mentioned Conde Nast Traveler listed Ireland as number three in their top 10 countries to visit.

Among its attributes is golf. Ireland is home to a third of the world’s links courses. That’s an interesting selling point since Canadians have the highest golf participation rates in the world.

In July the Royal Portrush Course is hosting the 148th Open. For non-players, The Open is such a famous tournament it doesn’t need a fuller name. On the edge of the Portrush course is the ruined Dunluce Castle which has a funny story – funny in the context of Irish humour – about a storm that sent the castle’s kitchen, cooks and pots crashing into the sea.

For those with Downton Abbey-addicted clients, Ireland has 600 stately homes and castles. Many of these homes and castles accept guests. Some make their owners available for a special event or experience. Among the possibilities are having a glass of wine with the Honourable Desmond Guinness, tea with the Earl of Rosse at Birr Castle (as Lord Snowdon’s brother he is the Queen’s former brother-in-law) or sharing a whisky with the Jameson Family (of the distillery fame).

For the more adventurous there are unique experiences from cycling, climbing, traversing the Garrick-a-Rede swinging rope bridge and exploring the 40,000+ natural stone columns of the Giant’s Causeway. For man-made creations, the burial mount at New Grange predates the pyramids by 5,000 years.

The 2,500-km-long Wild Atlantic Way is the world’s longest touring route. Its success has spurred the development of the 314-km-long Causeway Coastal Route, which is rated one of the world’s best touring routes, and The Gobbins guided adventure cliff walk.

For city experiences, Titanic Belfast maintains strong interest and has been rated the world’s leading attraction. Dublin is promoting five-day St. Patrick’s Day celebrations and Waterford, which is best known for the crystal produced here, is central to Ireland’s Viking triangle. Waterford has more national monuments in a three-block area than are found in all the rest of Ireland. It also has a 42-km cycling route.

Armagh is the country’s ecclesiastical capital. With two St. Patrick’s cathedrals – one Church of Ireland (Protestant), one Roman Catholic – it is a popular destination for faith-based groups and individuals who follow a pilgrim route. St. Patrick was actually dean of the Protestant cathedral (which at the time was a Catholic church).

Amargh, which is where Gulliver’s Travels was written, is also a foodie city, a genealogical centre and home to many traditional Irish sports. Among those sports is Hurling, which is played here year round. Hurley-on-ice, which was played in Windsor, Nova Scotia in 1800, is considered the roots for hockey, so has that extra Canadian interest.

Screen tourism, driven by The Games of Thrones and Star Wars’ The Last Jedi, is drawing visitors on a type of cultural pilgrimage to locations where these productions have been filmed.

Some of the intense new travel experiences are the knitting tours. They’ve got the sheep and history and are drawing knitters from around the world who come to learn, experiment and pursue their passion.

Moffat’s colleague said they support agents and sellers with high commissions, value for money for visitors, authentic experiences, local experts, easy customization of packages and itineraries, a history of hospitality, and a real year-round destination. In addition to newsletters, e-zines, promotional literature, market advice, fam trips, workshops, trade shows, Irish Tourism will provide content for sellers’ social media accounts, as well as material targeted to client interest.

Another message was variation of price points. Ireland can provide luxurious five-star experiences in castle resorts, but for the price-sensitive also provide family-friendly-priced experiences.

The evening began with a reception-trade show, speed-dating-type-rotating table presentations, dinner and Irish music. Amongst themselves, the 70 Halifax-based agents considered it one of the better organized evenings they are invited to.

Participating Irish and Canada-based partners were B&B Ireland, The Griffin Group (small, Irish-owned hotel group), Visit Armagh, Waterford Treasures, Giant’s Causeway World Heritage Site, Galway 2020 (when they are the European Capital of Culture), Adams & Butler, Moloney & Kelly, The Irish Tourism Group, Royal Irish Tours, Globus Family of Brands, CIE Tours and Collette Vacations.

Airija – atsakingos politikos pavyzdys

f Lietuvos Respublikos Prezidentė Dalia Grybauskaitė antradienį, birželio 19d., susitiko su oficialaus vizito į Lietuvą atvykusiu Airijos Respublikos Prezidentu Michaeliu D. Higginsu. Susitikime aptarti dvišaliai Lietuvos ir Airijos santykiai, bendradarbiavimas Europos Sąjungoje, saugumo klausimai. Į Lietuvą Airijos vadovas atvyko kartu su pirmąja šios šalies ponia Sabina Mary Higgins.

Prezidentės teigimu, Airija – artima Lietuvai. Esame panašūs savo šalių dydžiu, interesais, vertybėmis. Todėl mums Airija yra svarbus atsakingos politikos, sėkmingos ekonominės raidos ir gebėjimo susigrąžinti išvykusius žmones pavyzdys.

Prieš 30 metų Airijos politinės partijos, profesinės sąjungos, darbdavių organizacijos įsipareigojo vieningai vykdyti nacionalines ekonominio atsigavimo ir socialinės pažangos programas. Atsakingai ir laiku įgyvendintos mokesčių ir ekonomikos reformos, kova su socialine atskirtimi užtikrino sėkmingą Airijos raidą. Šiandien tai – pažangi, inovatyvi ir sparčiausiai auganti ES ekonomika.

Didelę emigraciją patyrusi Airija yra pavyzdys, kaip sėkmingai susigrąžinti išvykusius piliečius namo. Šalyje įgyvendinama paramos emigrantams programa, o visame pasaulyje gyvenantys airiai raginami padėti valstybei pritraukti užsienio investicijas. Lietuva taip pat kviečia sugrįžti iš mūsų šalies išvykusius žmones. Tam skirta ir pernai Prezidentės inicijuota programa „Rinkis Lietuvą“, kuri jau duoda pirmuosius rezultatus. Per pirmus 5 šių metų mėnesius į Lietuvą sugrįžo per 10 tūkst. mūsų šalies žmonių – tai daugiau nei per visus praėjusius metus.

Lietuvą ir Airiją glaudžiai sieja ir gausi Airijos lietuvių bendruomenė – trečia didžiausia tautinė bendrija šioje šalyje. Aktyvūs ir pilietiški Airijos lietuviai išsaugojo ryšį su tėvyne: vykdo įvairiais labdaringas iniciatyvas padėdami Lietuvos vaikams, puoselėja lietuviškas tradicijas, kalbą ir kultūrą. Airijoje veikia net 14 lituanistinių mokyklų, o nuo pernai metų lietuvių kalba įtraukta į Airijos bendrojo lavinimo mokyklų programą kaip galima antroji užsienio kalba.

Valstybių bendradarbiavimą dar labiau sustiprins vizito metu pasirašomi trys susitarimai mokslo ir švietimo srityje: tarp Lietuvos sveikatos mokslų universiteto ir Airijos nacionalinio universiteto, Kauno ir Korko miestų mokytojų rengimo centrų bei Kauno mokytojų namų ir Korko lietuviškosios mokyklos. Šiuo metu Lietuvos ir Airijos mokslininkai įgyvendina net 75 bendrus ES finansuojamus tyrimų projektus.

Daug potencialo turi ir ekonominis bendradarbiavimas, ypač IT, „Fintech“, gyvybės mokslų srityse. Naujų galimybių teikia ir energetikos sektorius – Airijai ketinant statyti SGD terminalą, Lietuva pasirengusi pasidalyti savo patirtimi. Šiuo metu Airijos investicijos Lietuvoje yra sukūrusios per 2000 darbo vietų.

Susitikime šalių vadovai aptarė ir bendradarbiavimą Europos Sąjungoje. Pasak šalies vadovės, Lietuva ir Airija vienodai supranta ES kylančius migracijos, ekonomikos, saugumo, „Brexit“ iššūkius ir kartu juos sprendžia. „Brexit“ derybose Lietuva ir Airija pasisako už kuo gaudesnių ryšių tarp ES ir Jungtinės Karalystės išsaugojimą. Taip pat palaikome Airijos siekį užtikrinti, kad „Brexit“ nesukurtų naujų sienų Europoje. Sutampa ir abiejų šalių interesai artėjančiose derybose dėl naujo daugiamečio ES biudžeto. Lietuvai ir Airijai aktualu, kad būtų išsaugomas adekvatus finansavimas sanglaudos ir žemės ūkio politikai.

Susitikime pasikeista ir oficialiomis dovanomis. Prezidentė poezija ir filosofija besidominčiam Airijos vadovui padovanojo Lietuvos poetų eilėraščių knygą anglų kalba, taip pat „Lietuvos kultūros gidą“, kuriame pristatoma mūsų šalies architektūra, dizainas, kinas, muzika, teatras, šokis, vizualieji menai. Airijos Prezidento dovana – Airijos menininko sukurtas medinis dubuo.

Vizito metu Airijos Prezidentui taip pat bus suteiktas Kauno Vytauto Didžiojo universiteto garbės daktaro vardas.

Vaikai grojantys milžinišku būgnu parke – Silvija Travel Tips

Velykų pirmadienį Dublino gyventojai ir svečiai turėjo puikią galimybę dalyvauti Kūrybinės Airijos festivalyje ( Creative Ireland). Daugybė kultūrinių renginių suaugusiems ir vaikams sukvietė šimtus žiūrovų į St. Stephen’s Green skverą. Čia ant stendų skambėjo įvairiausia muzika iš viso pasaulio, aidėjo dainos ir šokiai. Neįmanoma buvo tiesiog būti vien stebėtoju, visur minios lingavo ir šoko į taktą kartu su atlikėjais. Ypač daug renginių buvo skirta vaikams- nuo teatro, muzikos iki kūrybinių dirbtuvių , kur vaikai buvo mokomi įvairiausių amatų. Didžiulis būgnas tiesiog buvo aplipęs vaikais, kur jie azartiškai mušė į taktą , o jo garsas aidėjo toli už skvero. Visiems norėjosi pašėlti , padūkti. Puiku , kad šio festivalio programa sudaryta 5 metams.Tai bus labai gera galimybė per Velykas pasidžiaugti kultūriniais renginiais ir kūrybine Airija.

Pasimėgavimas Glendalough slėniu ir Viklou kalnais, Airija – Silvija Travel Tips

Labai smagu rytmečio žarą ir tekančią saulę stebėti gamtoje. Šį kartą aušrą pasitikau Viklou (Wicklow) kalnuose.Žodžiais nenusakomas jausmas, kai tu matai brėkštantį rytmetį ir girdi, stebi kas darosi aplink kalnuose- tik tu ir gamta, ir tekanti saulė…. Wicklow kalnai driekiasi netoli Airijos sostinės Dublino, čia įkurtas nacionalinis parkas, galintis pasigirti ne tik beveik kilometro aukštį siekiančiomis viršūnėmis, bet ir dailiais slėniais ir ežerais. Butina pamatyti Glenmacnass krioklį , kur vanduo krenta is upės,tekančios nuo kalno, antro pagal aukšti Wicklow nacionaliniame parke ( 849 metrai). Tai neapsakomo grožio vaizdas, kai gali stebėti krintančio vandens jėga ir klausyti jo šniokštimo,ši didybė veikia labai raminačiai. Glendalochas (Glendalough) – tai slėnis, garsus vienuolyno griuvėsiais. Ši vietovė yra Airijos Viklou apskrityje, nuo sostinės Dublino nutolusi maždaug 50 km į pietvakarius. Ši vietovė egzistuoja tūkstanmečius, dar nuo Ledynmečio periodo. Vietovėje išlikę iki 1398 m. veikusio vienuolyno griuvėsiai. Vienuolyną įkūrė Šv. Kevinas VI amžiuje. Čia taip pat galima aplankyti katedrą, kuri yra likusi be stogo, kunigo namelį, koplytėlę ir Šv. Kevino kryžių. Glendalocho apylinkėms būdingi vaizdingi kraštovaizdžiai: įspūdingi ežerai, apsupti sodriais augalais, žalios kalvos ir slėniai.
