Rule, Britannia! Britannia Rules the Skies!
Latest data—for November 2021—show that UK has returned to its No. 1 ranking as top Inbound Market. But 60 percent of year-to-date inbound traffic came from LATAM and Caribbean markets.
Essentially unnoticed when the U.S. National Travel & Tourism Office (NTTO) made it available during the holidays just past, the monthly “quick release” of overseas travel to the United States showed industry leaders that their hope and promise of a return to visiting the U.S. by UK visitors who have long established the USA as their favorite long-haul holiday destination was fulfilled.
After some 20 months of pandemic-driven restraints during which the United States had closed its borders on land, overseas and in the skies, its government allowed travelers from most of the UK, EU and other nations to travel to once again visit the USA beginning last month—on November 8th.
Fired up because of pent-up demand, the Brits stormed the shores of Florida and the gates of its Central Florida theme parks, as well as other U.S. destinations, and returned home with their well-earned sunburns. U.S. travel suppliers were happy to welcome Brits, and the UK travel trade was, as the issue of INBOUND was preparing to publish, were busy as usual during the peaks month of January promoting Visit USA product.
Will the omicron variant of the COVID 19 dampen demand? It is difficult to make the determination on this matter, as the speed and fluidity with which the variant is a genuine concern. For the most part, travel sellers are making sure that security, safety and concerns about health figure in their packages, and consumers—opinion polls and surveys seem to suggest—still want to travel, but are proceeding with caution.
LATAM continues as strong regional source market. While no one that we know expects the popular destinations of South and Central America, as well as the Caribbean, to maintain the share of long-haul travel to the United States from origin destinations of Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, Venezuela, Ecuador, Costa Rica and Guatemala, it is probably safe to project that these country markets will be stronger than they were in the pre-pandemic era—especially since a new air service infrastructure has been built up in connecting them.
Lastly, Colombia could just break the million-visit threshold once the data for December and full-year 2021 are released next month.

There’s Still Life in Chinese Student Market
The uncertainty over the omicron variant of the COVID-19 virus has put a palpable “hold” on international travel throughout the world. And even though China’s government has been more aggressive than most in imposing measures aimed at containing COVID, and with the numbers and public policy that actually encourages domestic travel within the country, the news outlets and channels of distribution that cover tourism-related matters seem to be languishing on the back of a Pushmi-Pullyu: upbeat news about the industry during one news cycle gives way to a tug in the other direction the following week.
Prior to the unbelievable speed with which the omicron variant swept throughout major travel routes and points of connection, the general consensus of those who follow China’s outbound travel industry was this: travel of all types would continue to languish until after the Winter Olympics in February in Beijing or National Labor Day on May 1st, which normally lasts three days. Unfortunately, employees usually have to make up two of these three days on a later weekend. The situation doesn’t make clear just what kind of travel intentions and travel packages are gaining favor among the Chinese.
So, INBOUND had a conversation about the matter with Z.J. Tong, a Chicago-based top marketer, blogger and popular travel influencer in China. He told us, “It’s a million-dollar question regarding the reopening of Chinese inbound market”
“Currently, what stops Chinese from outbound travel is that when they go back to China, there is a minimum 14 + 7-day quarantine requirement,” he noted, explaining that “China has done significantly well in keeping the virus infection rate low due to tough quarantine measures.”
“Many of us thought or at least hoped that after the Winter Olympics, which take place Feb. 4-20, 2022 in Beijing, the Chinese government might loosen the quarantine requirement. But the spreading of the recent omicron variant has further complicated the situation,” he added.
On the positive side—the student market thrives: Tong pointed out that “one stable market is the Chinese student market that are already in the U.S., which despite the decrease, remains around 310,000,” and that “many of the U.S. destinations should have seen a surge of Chinese student travelers during this winter break because they could not go back to China as they normally would have done.”
He said, “The student market will also draw large number of FIT family members to visit or attend graduation when the travel resumes. I have done live-streaming campus tours at nearly 40 universities across the country since July, drawing as many as 167,000 viewers at a couple of schools, which is much higher than when I do live-streaming at any attractions. It demonstrated the top interests in the Chinese market at the moment. Many DMOs don’t consider universities as attractions, but to the Chinese market, they are.”
Since the pandemic started, Tong pointed out that his company, China Pro Marketing Partners “pivoted to develop travel influencer accounts for the Chinese market,” adding, “we now have over 120,000 followers across several platforms. I plan to continue doing campus live-streaming tours after the new year and I’m looking for DMO and university partners who are also looking to outreach to Chinese student market.”

Pier 39 Tops in No. of Website Languages
Which of the world’s leading tourist attractions offer information on their websites in the most foreign languages? Preply, a Ukraine-based developer of a language app and e-learning platform headquartered in Kyiv—it also has offices in Barcelona, Spain—recently set out to find the answer to the question and came up with a list that has some major surprises.
Well known to the U.S. travel trade and by visitors to San Francisco, where it is located, Pier 39, a collection of attractions, restaurants, specialty shops and a takeoff for short-distance cruises and water-based tours, is the surprise Number One.
Preply took 50 of the world’s most popular tourist attractions, based on their visitor numbers, and investigated how many different languages are offered on their official websites. The study found that the websites for many leading attractions offer information only in English.
The list of the Top 10 attractions, based on annual visitor numbers, who offer the largest number of language options on their official websites.
|Attraction & Rank||City||Country||Annual Visitors (Millions)||No. of Languages on Website|
|1. Pier 39||San Francisco||USA||8.5||109|
|2. Time Square||New York City||USA||39.2||53|
|3. Sacre Coeur||Paris||France||10.5||14|
|4. Disneyland Paris||Paris||France||11.2||10|
|5. The Strip||Las Vegas||USA||39.6||9|
|6. Disney Hong Kong||Hong Kong||Hong Kong||6.7||8|
|7. Eiffel Tower||Paris||France||7||8|
|8. Grand Central Station||New York City||USA||21.6||8|
|9. Pike Place Market||Seattle||USA||10||6|
|10. Nagashima Spa Land||Kuwana||Japan||5.8||5|
Notes on the list, as reported by Travel Daily News, include the following:
● Pier 39 in San Francisco tops the list as it offers an impressive 109 different language options on its official website. The reason why it offers so many languages is thanks to a translator plug-in‚ which is a simple piece of technology that makes the website so much more inclusive for people who speak different languages.
● New York’s Times Square comes in second with 53 languages on its website to help its 39 million annual visitors. Two French attractions take third and fourth place; the Sacre Coeur provides 14 languages on its website, and Disneyland Paris offers 10 languages to its 11 million annual visitors.
● Despite the above, twenty of the top 50 attractions on the Preply list only offer English on their websites.
Said Kirill Bigai, CEO of Preply: “In difficult times like these, it becomes even more important for businesses, including tourist attractions, to attract customers. By offering information, especially corona rules, in a number of different languages on a company’s website shows the business’ eagerness to welcome visitors.” For more information, visit www.preply.com.
Trade Talk & Tourism Industry Buzz
● For Canada, will there be no recovery until Q3? Canada’s tourism minister says the nation’s tourism industry won’t be able to rely on revenue from international visitors for many more months. In a conversation with CBC news Randy Boissonnault, Canada’s minister of tourism, said there is unlikely to be any inbound tourists until the third quarter of 2022. A little more than three quarters of tourism spending comes from domestic travelers, but spend less than a quarter compared to international visitors. “Domestic travel is a crucial step but will not be able to fill the revenue gap from the halt of international travel,” said Beth Potter, CEO of the Tourism Industry Association of Canada. Click here for the complete CBC article.
● In Germany, it’s going to be a strong summer but a long recovery. From FVW/TravelTalk: “The German Travel Association (DRV) expects strong summer business in 2022, as people willing to travel will catch up on their holidays postponed or cancelled due to the pandemic. But there is a long way to go before the travel industry fully recovers. “The new year remains challenging for the travel industry as the Corona pandemic continues,” says DRV President Norbert Fiebig after analyzing the latest DRV business survey of 550 respondents. The majority of respondents do not expect a sustained recovery for the travel business until 2023 (43 percent) or even 2024 (37 percent) – 16 percent even later. Click here for complete article.
● New leaders named during the past year for the tourism industry in Argentina. Here are the top five (from REPORTURcom.ar.)
● Gay Travel Award winners named. Delta Air Lines has received the award for best airline in the 2021 Gay Gravel Awards, which are presented annually by GayTravel.com. There were more than 30 awards given out in categories ranging from hotels and resorts to golf resorts and destinations. Said GayTravel Chief Visionary Officer Steve Rohrlick: “This year has been another challenging one for travelers. With the pandemic ebbing and flowing across the globe and the uncertainty related to the latest Omicron variant, many are restricted from traveling or waiting for a safer time. The Gay Travel Awards affords us all a moment to focus on the industry’s best as a prologue to getting back out there.” The Gay Travel Awards support and promote LGBTQ+ travel and tourism by identifying and rewarding select destinations, properties, events, influencers, and other organizations that exemplify a spirit of inclusiveness and hospitality excellence.

● Tour Operator ATI signs partnership with Discover Long Island (New York): Going public with its unique way of partnering with a destination, AmericanTours International (ATI)—one of the largest tour operators in North America—has formed a strategic partnership with the destination in which the operator will be adding new hotel and excursion product throughout Long Island to further develop the destination for their domestic and international clients.
ATI’s clients will be able to tailor their very own Long Island-focused packages utilizing ATI’s ‘Drive America’ road trip building platform. The operator will be adding new hotel and excursion product throughout Long Island to further develop the destination for their domestic and international clients. “There has never been a better time to rekindle old relationships and create new ones, if we learnt something from the pandemic, is the importance of relationships,” said Kristen Reynolds, President and CEO of Discover Long Island. Discover Long Island’s main mission is to represent Suffolk and Nassau Counties, which are east of Queens, NYC. The two counties have a combined population of 2.8 million people.
● Air & Space Museum’s National Mall Building to Close March 28 Through Fall 2022: The National Air and Space Museum’s flagship building on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. will temporarily close to the public March 28, 2022, until fall 2022 to complete work on the first new galleries in the west wing of the building. The museum has been undergoing a major renovation since late 2018.
Officials said that this closure is needed to ensure the continued safety of visitors. To provide the best visitor experience, the museum’s west-end galleries will open all at one time; their opening date will be announced next year. The Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, the museum’s companion facility in Chantilly, Virginia, will operate as usual with regular visiting hours and events. The museum will also continue doing virtual events and has robust online materials about the collection.
The second half of the project will begin at the end of March 2022 with the deinstallation of the east wing of the building. The completion of that wing, the culmination of the project and the opening of the remaining exhibitions are currently scheduled for 2025. For more information, call 202.633.2214.
● A reminder: National Parks need help to prep for the peak travel season in 2022. Perhaps no other element of the leisure tourism infrastructure is as important to international travel to the United States than is its system of 400 U.S. national parks, 560 national wildlife refuges and nearly 250 million acres of other public lands managed by the U.S. Department of the Interior and its National Park Service. From the Grand Canyon to Yellowstone to the Statue of Liberty, the U.S. Travel Association notes, America’s national parks and monuments are a major draw for visitors from across the U.S. and around the world. Beyond their natural beauty and historic significance, these sites also contribute heavily to America’s local and national economies.
“Unfortunately, many of these sites are suffering from a severe maintenance backlog,” says US Travel, “leaving national parks facilities like campgrounds, roads, restrooms and information centers in dire need of improvements.” The situation becomes even more of a challenge as many parks are expected to impose limits on the number of visitors and cut back on services—actions that seem certain to seriously impact the business of international tour operators and U.S.-based receptive tour operators who sell Visit USA product—especially national parks.
