The travel and tourism industry of India has taken a hit since the coronavirus pandemic began last year. Just when the cases were decreasing between November 2020 and February 2021, the tourism industry was open and trying to recover from the losses, and suddenly came the second wave of the pandemic as a destructive effect on the industry.
So, in the coming months or so, the travel and tourism industry is going to take a backseat because various state governments are back with new curbs and restrictions and a stay-at-home mandate. Thus, it is obvious that we can expect the travel and tourism sector to revive its losses only after the pandemic comes to an end in its totality. Yes, these are the struggling days or challenging period of the sector which cannot see it reopening anytime soon in the coming future.
But, when the pandemic ends, and people start coming out of their homes, one can witness huge sales of tickets in trains, flights, buses to explore domestic and international tourism. After all, people have been locked up in homes and will be so for the coming months and thus, when their frustration wants to have a platform, they will turn to travel to stay away from their homes for a longer period of time, with or without families.
Travelling will get a major boost in the post-pandemic world, just like how essential supplies such as medicines, vegetables, fruits, grocery are much in demand during pandemic times. Thus, people working in the travel and tourism sector should be prepared to handle the huge demand that will come into effect in the post-pandemic times and be ready to cash in on the opportunity with various new forms of tour packages.
So, as we look at a brighter future for the country in the post-pandemic world, the travel and tourism sector should also have hopes and stay optimistic to sail during these testing times.
