The Greek island of Corfu is among the top 5 international destinations
of choice for UK nationals planning to travel this year, according to analytics firm ForwardKeys.
More specifically, the Ionian island of Corfu together with Orlando, Faro, Las Vegas, and Ibiza are the leading choices for travel according to Air Ticket data for tickets issued from 4 June to 21 September 2021 compared to the same period in 2020.
“This goes to show you that the desire to travel and pent-up demand are real. With the right travel conditions put in place and governments installing more confidence than fear in traveling abroad, not everything needs to about doom and gloom for the travel sector in 2021,” said Olivier Ponti, VP Insights, ForwardKeys.
According to data collected by ForwardKeys for the UK Travel Retail Forum, in addition to the global Covid-19 shock, Brexit, the effectiveness of the AstraZeneca vaccine, continuous lockdowns and travel restrictions, have also hit the British travel sector.
