Travel has therefore profoundly shaped the modern UK economy. Yet for many UK tour agents and operators, the situation could soon prove terminal

By Ali Shah

The UK has a rich history as a global transport hub. While we all value our holidays as individuals, the value of travel to the UK economy cannot be overlooked. In 2019, the 40.9 million overseas visitors who came to the UK spent over £28bn.

While many of us don’t consider the UK economy to be as dependent on tourism as some of our European counterparts, in 2018 the UK ranked 8th in the UNWTO international tourist arrivals league and 11th in the international tourism earnings, accounting in total for 2.7 per cent of global arrivals. London is also the second most visited city in the world, behind only Hong Kong.

Travel has therefore profoundly shaped the modern UK economy. The industry accounts for 9.6 per cent of total UK jobs and 9 per cent of the UK’s GDP. Yet, the emergence of the pandemic has unquestionably provided us with our biggest challenges to date, and they are continuing to mount. The complete global shutdown of the travel industry was devastating, but as we have reopened, government strategy is now in real danger of causing irretrievable harm to every aspect of the sector.

France and Spain, the UK’s two biggest travel partners are now both under quarantine measures, and the latest game of travel musical chairs has seen restrictions placed on Croatia, Austria, Trinidad and Tobago. STA Travel, the pandemic’s latest travel victim, is testament to the struggles being endured by an industry practically starved of income since March, and now facing short notice changes to quarantine requirements and a cascade of new cancellations.

The best of the Muslim Times’ collection for war against Covid 19:

In this day and age, understanding bacteria and viruses and developing vaccines are national security issues. In my view sizable part of every country’s defense budget should be spent in these pursuits rather than making tanks and other weapons.
