The International Air Transport Association (IATA) estimates the global revenue could fall by 20% this year which translates to anywhere between $63 billion and $113 billion. Needless to say, springing back to life post pandemic is going to be excruciatingly challenging and slow for travel companies, especially startups bootstrapping their way out of this crisis. Offbeat destinations could become the new trend as people flock towards safer options. As for now, our message to all the travellers is that Stay Safe & Stay Home, Travel Later once the situation is stable. We wish you all the best in these tough times!
