MADRID — The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) has launched a new Tourism-Recovery Tracker to support global tourism.

The most comprehensive tourism dashboard to date, the tracker is the result of a partnership between international organizations and the private sector, including the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), ForwardKeys, STR, Sojern and AIRDNA. Available for free, it covers key tourism-performance indicators by month, region and sub-region, allowing for a real-time comparison of the sector’s recovery across the world and industries.

The tracker includes data on:
• international tourist arrivals
• seat capacity in international and domestic air routes
• air-travel bookings
• hotel searches and bookings
• occupancy rates
• demand for short-term rentals

According to UNWTO latest World Tourism Barometer, the massive drop in international-travel demand over the period January to June 2020 translates into a loss of 440-million international arrivals and about US$460-billion in export revenues from international tourism. This is around five times the loss in international tourism receipts recorded in 2009 amid the global economic and financial crisis.
