Frequent fliers want to get away

Over three quarters of frequent fliers plan to travel in the next 12 months.

A new study by Collinson has revealed that 77 per cent of people in the Asia-Pacific region are ready to head away on holiday in the next year, with over half of these (55 per cent) doing so for leisure purposes.

And nearly four fifths (78 per cent) of those surveyed are excited to go away on holiday, whilst just under two thirds (61 per cent) felt confident about heading abroad.

And vaccinations will play a key part in getting the travel sector moving again as 41 per cent said getting a jab against COVID-19 would encourage them to travel again.

Andy Besant, managing director of Travel Experiences at Collinson, said: "It’s clear those travellers who were frequent flyers before COVID-19 are ready and waiting to get on a plane as long as the right measures, such as social distancing and contactless transactions, are in place.

"But the travel experience will change, with traveller demand for greater automation and socially-distanced spaces such as lounges, in order to balance the upheaval of the past year."
