May 14, 2022 Headline News, OTA News No Comments

Global Travel MediaStrong demand for international travel as APAC re-opens Growth in longer booking horizons and trip lengths signal the return of seasonality High volumes of domestic and short-haul itineraries, gains in the long haul.

Travel marketplace, Skyscanner, is today publishing a new report exploring the latest trends in global travel. Titled Skyscanner Horizons: Travel’s resilience and trends shaping recovery, the report combines consumer polling with extensive flight search and booking data from each region –APAC, the Americas and EMEA – to provide a comprehensive view of 2022 travel demand.

Unique and in-depth analysis of key indicators such as travel spend, booking horizons, haul type, trip length, trending destinations and how they compare to pre-pandemic provides unrivalled insights for the sector.

The report also features exclusive expert commentary on these trends shaping recovery from industry thought leaders such as Hugh Aitken, Skyscanner VP of Flights, Nick Hall, CEO of Digital Tourism Think Tank, Marco Navarria, Global Content and Marketing Director, CAPA and John Strickland, Director JLS Consulting.

Key Australia and APAC findings include:

  • 90% of Australian travellers plan to spend more or the same on international travel than they did in 2019, with 40% planning to spend more.
  • Of those spending more, 58% are putting this money towards longer trips and 43% towards accommodation upgrades. But travellers do remain price-conscious.
  • Longer booking horizons surge in Q1, specifically segments +90 days, 60-89 days and 30-59 days.

Domestic travel in Q1 2022 is significantly higher than in 2019, however, both long haul and short-haul have seen strong growth over the quarter following rising demand after many APAC countries ease travel restrictions.

Longer trip lengths peak in July and December; in particular trips of two weeks to a month and longer than a month.

Hugh Aitken, Flights VP at Skyscanner comments: “Despite challenging headwinds, the aviation industry continues to prove its resilience, driven by considerable traveller demand across all regions. Our latest report crunches three months of data to provide unrivalled insight into the latest traveller behaviours and patterns – and how they compare to pre-pandemic.

“In the immediate term, there’s a clear demand for domestic and short-haul travel, with long haul’s recovery on the horizon as airlines relaunch pre-pandemic routes, announce new destinations and restrictions in many countries in APAC are relaxed.

“There’s good news for aviation and the wider travel sector too. We’re seeing positive signals that seasonality is returning in both booking horizons and trip lengths, providing a degree of certainty going forward.”
