Bookings for Catalonia Fall 22%

November 4, 2017 Statistics & Trends No Comments Email Email

According to ForwardKeys, which helps forecast future travel by analysing around 17 million flight booking transactions a day, international air reservations for Catalonia have fallen 22% since the beginning of October (up to 25th of October), benchmarked against the equivalent dates last year.

Olivier Jager, CEO, ForwardKeys said: “Domestic political unrest almost always deters visitors and that is what we are seeing now – a 22% collapse in international flight bookings for Catalonia. This will also have a knock-on to other parts of Spain because many visitors arriving in Catalonia will travel around the country. If the political crisis worsens, I fear we will see a further decline in bookings. This trend will be of great concern because Travel & Tourism represents such a large proportion of the Spanish economy, over 14% of GDP*”. (*Source WTTC)
