Tourism Recovery Tracker: UNWTO Offers Key Data in One Place

The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) recently launched the Tourism Recovery Tracker, aiming to support global tourism as growing numbers of countries around the world ease travel restrictions that were taken due to the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

The new tool compiles all the relevant tourism data in one place, giving governments and the private businesses the ability to track the sector’s recovery at global and regional level, alongside information on the top destinations for international tourism.

Available for free, the UNWTO Tourism Recovery Tracker covers key tourism performance indicators by month, regions and subregions allowing for a real time comparison of the sector recovery across the world and industries.

The tracker includes data on:

  • international tourist arrivals,
  • seat capacity in international and domestic air routes,
  • air travel bookings,
  • hotel searches and bookings,
  • occupancy rates and
  • demand for short term rentals.

The UNWTO Tourism Recovery Tracker is the result of a partnership between international organizations and the private sector, including the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), ForwardKeys, STR, Sojern and AIRDNA.

According to the UNWTO’s latest World Tourism Barometer, the massive drop in international travel demand over the period January-June 2020 translates into a loss of 440 million international arrivals and about US$ 460 billion in export revenues from international tourism.

“This is around five times the loss in international tourism receipts recorded in 2009 amid the global economic and financial crisis,” the organization said.
