Almost 80% of respondents to a TTG poll believe there is still a gender pay gap in travel.

TTG quizzed readers yesterday following news that incoming easyJet chief executive Johan Lundgren is to be paid around £36,000 more than outgoing chief Carolyn McCall, who was in her position with the airline for seven years.

 

According to reports Lundgren will receive a basic salary of £740,000 compared with McCall’s annual £704,000 pay.

 

Some 48% of respondents to the TTG poll said they believed men still earn more than women at all levels of the travel industry, while 32% said they believed there was a gender pay gap, but only at a senior level.

 

Only 20% said they believed that travel salaries were equal for both sexes.
