In today’s ever-changing travel landscape, what does it mean to be truly traveller-first?

Stephanie also spoke about the traveller-first and partner-specific solutions we’ve launched at Skyscanner since the start of the pandemic. These include: 

  • An ongoing global sentiment survey of thousands of travellers to track confidence levels and Skyscanner visitor intent across our key markets.  
     
  • The principles which guide our product development – from additive solutions that scale to data-driven optimisation.  

  • Our new suite of traveller products and tools – from our Covid restrictions map and airline confidence ratings to flexible policy filters and insurance. 
     
  • New ways to share the latest forward-looking data, search and booking trends, route demand and industry insights with our partners. 
      
  • Helping tourist boards share information with our users to ensure their destination stays front-of-mind when people can’t travel. 

Joining Stephanie was Professor Lloyd Waller, Executive Director of Global Tourism Resilience & Crisis Management Centre. Together, they touched on the biggest challenges still facing the industry – from the uneven global recovery to vaccine roll out and the standardisation of restrictions and entry requirements.
