“I truly believe that one of the reasons for this success is our core philosophy: Traveler first.”

“Overall search and bookings remain super low, starting from April. However, right now, we are seeing some very early signs of recovery in domestic travel.”

“Global travel anxiety has dropped from its highest point of 72% to the current and lowest figure of 58%, which is good.”

“There are so many unknowns, and restoring traveler confidence in travel will be the key.”
