Can Domestic Travel Carry its Weight as International Travel Stays on Pause?

COVID’s Delta variant continues its spread, and in turn, U.S. borders remain closed to travelers from the EU and U.K., going on almost 550 days. In response to uncertainty around international travel, airlines are now putting a pause on London to New York flights and other classic international routes. Some are waiting until mid-September to make a formal announcement, some waiting until closer to the end of the year.

Is domestic travel going to be able to carry its weight for the industry? And are travelers actually ready to return at scale, or will Delta’s spread wane consumer confidence once again?

We spoke with Mike Liverton, CEO of Jetstream Hospitality Solutions, a channel marketing solutions company for the hospitality industry, on what hospitality professionals should keep their eyes on as we continue to maneuver summer travel, and how hotels could help meet the moment to support the return of business travel.
