Nearly a year into the Covid crisis and the travel industry remains effectively closed down, with zero dedicated financial support. Travel is entirely supportive of measures to stop the spread of Covid but right now, an entire sector faces catastrophe unless urgent help is provided. TTG Media is calling on prime minister Boris Johnson, the cabinet, and the rest of the UK government to:
- Provide the travel industry with regular updates on major policy decisions – it needs firm guidance so businesses can plan;
- Re-establish a travel taskforce, this time with industry representation, ensuring greater collaboration across government on travel; and,
- Commit to providing dedicated financial support for the industry, including an extension to the furlough scheme that is tailored for travel.
We are calling on everyone in travel, everyone with an interest in or passion for travel, and everyone with a stake in travel, to support this urgent call by signing the petition below.
