What does the future really hold?
Our focus is not on the numbers but on the quality of the service and product we can provide for the tourist. Thus, we are looking into the challenges that we have in this regard and how to turn them into opportunities that will be enjoyed by tourists as well as all stakeholders.
Minister for Tourism & Consumer Protection - Clayton Bartolo
Provided the vaccinations work well and if people in Europe start travelling again by the beginning of April, my personal estimation, which is not based on any studies, would be that if we see 900,000 arrivals then we would have done well.
President of the Malta Hotels and Restaurants Association Tony Zahra
Several international industry organisations are predicting that, following an extremely rocky first quarter of 2021, the tourism industry may expect to start seeing signs of recovery with the onset of the summer season.
Malta International Airport CEO Alan Borg
I am sure we will see a significant upturn in the course of 2021. I believe that Lufthansa will achieve half of 2019's passenger levels and maybe up to 70% in the summer of 2021.
Lufthansa CEO Carsten Spohr
People will want to get away from cities, seaside destinations will be incredibly popular.
Wizz Air CEO Jozsef Varadi
Passenger volumes should reach 75-80% of pre-Covid levels in 2021, especially if a vaccine is developed by the spring. There’s going to be an enormous snapback on travel demand. We’re going to see a surge of that intra-European tourism next year, and we need to be there to provide the capacity at low prices.
