It is clear that COVID-19 is not going away and will continue to challenge international air travel. As a result, everyone in the airline industry and other industries that require international travel has learned how to deal with the new travel restrictions. The volume outlines the socioeconomic impact of the pandemic on tourism, including the millions of livelihoods it has affected. It highlights the role of tourism in advancing the SDGs, including its relationship to environmental goals and culture. The author calls for urgent mitigation of the impact on livelihoods, especially for youth, women, and informal workers. This crisis provides a chance to reconsider how tourism affects the society, other sectors of the economy, and natural resources and bionetworks; to evaluate and supervise it better; ensure its benefits are equitably distributed, and drive a shift towards carbon neutrality and the transformation of a robust tourism economy. This volume provides recommendations on priority areas to mitigate the drastic impact on lives and economies and develop people-centered tourism. It provides examples of government support for the industry, calls for reopening to prioritize the staff health and safety, travelers and host communities, and offers a road map to transform tourism.
