TTG has published its first monthly magazine today, filled with exclusive news, enlightening interviews, destination features and a whole section dedicated to TTG Luxury.
We announce here too the launch of our exciting new membership scheme, TTG+: ’It’s time for TTG+ as membership gets under way’.
We have also included a write up from our latest seminar debating the role of the FCO: ’Calls for clarity as panel finds FCO communication is creating havoc’.
Our interviews section features heavyweights Royal Caribbean Group’s Richard Fain and easyJet chief Johan Lundgren: ’Fain: We’re not here to compete when it comes to our guests’ health and safety’; ’Lundgren: Why is the government not more proud of its aviation industry?’.
For the analyses, we focus on destinations’ airline route recovery, and take a look at TTG Travel Agent Tracker responses over time. We’ve also featured insights from Post Office Travel Money’s latest city costs barometer.
In our Business Advice section we take a dive into how you can adapt your business and processes to keep up with the times, and analyse the World Travel and Tourism Council’s Safe Travels badge. We also put a focus on leadership.
Next, we dedicate a number of pages to the operators launching brochures and what they have to offer: ’Future gazing’.
A feature on winter sun options should help inspire and inform you for selling holidays in the short-term.
The final feature of the section hears from TTG’s news editor Jennifer Morris as she journeyed to Sardinia’s Forte Village to experience its new Covid Protection Protocol, including an antibody test on arrival.
This month’s One Last Thing column comes from Idle Travel’s Tony Mann: ’We’re in a living nightmare, but there is hope’.
The TTG Luxury pages kick off with information on the brand’s market-leading conference, which will take place in October, as well as the latest luxury news stories.
We feature a round up too of some of the most stylish new hotels and destinations, before taking a look at the rise in popularity of private jets amid the Covid pandemic.
There’s also a luxury take on options for trips in the near-future.
We round off this first monthly issue with ’The luxury view’ from chair of Metropolitan Touring, Roque Sevilla.
