Monitoring the Covid-19 impact on the travel industry

In these difficult times for everyone, and especially for the tourism industry in Greece and abroad which is trying to navigate through the uncharted waters of the Covid-19 pandemic, we seek for ways to act day by day.

Our response to COVID-19 is to support our employees and their families, our customers and the greater travel community. Since the very beginning of the crisis we have been covering the impact the coronavirus is having on the Greek travel and tourism industry. At GTP, through the dedicated GTP COVID-19 collection of resources, we aim to stay on top of the outbreak’s impact and support the tourism community by informing, providing content and bringing together good examples to help you through the days ahead.

We encourage everyone who has a good story to share with our audience to reach out and get in touch with us.

Stay safe and stay well.
