Global tourism hits 63 percent of pre-pandemic rate in first 9 months


(MENAFN) International tourism amounted to 63 percent of its pre-epidemic rate in the first 9 months with the support of the mobility in Europe, the UN tourism agency data showed on Wednesday.

An amount 700 million tourists took a trip globally in the opening nine months of 2022, increasing from a year ago, but declined 27 percent from the same time span three years ago, as shown by the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).

The industry is anticipated to hit 65 percent of 2019 rates by the closing of 2022, as the 10-month data showed so.

The rise on a yearly basis slowed from robust pent-up request, grew confidence levels as well as the lifting of sanctions in a surging figure of destinations, the UNWTO stated.

Europe greeted 477 million global arrivals or 68 percent of the world overall in the first 9 months, reaching 81 percent of rates before the COVID-19 epidemic. The number jumped 126 percent from 2021, initiated by robust intra-regional request and travel from the US.
