- COVID-19 has sparked interest in domestic tourism, but many places, especially the Mediterranean, still rely on good accessibility by air.
- Different providers will offer more simplicity as well as boutique experiences; both will be attractive to different clienteles.
- Addressing environmental concerns does not necessarily mean leisure air travel must suffer; sustainable smart solutions can be developed.
