Global Travel Recovery Index

The Skift Recovery Index is a real-time measure of where the travel industry at large — and the core verticals within it — stands in recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic. It provides the travel industry with a powerful tool for strategic planning, of utmost importance in this uncertain business climate.
After refining the weightings and adding additional sources, the past week’s score stands at 36, which shows a stalling of the climb of the past weeks, mainly due to new outbreaks and restrictions in China, and a stagnating performance in the U.S. as it also continues to struggle with increasing amounts of new outbreaks.
Despite their turn for the worse in terms of new coronavirus cases, China and the U.S. remain the stand-out performers in travel recovery, Germany is showing strong performance increases over the past weeks.
Singapore currently tracks lowest, but as it moved to phase 2 of its reopening on June 19.
We might start to see a slow uptick in performance in the coming weeks. However, international travel remains restricted in this phase, and with the city state highly reliant on inbound arrivals, recovery might still be a while away.
