Coronavirus: How THIS one product will change the future of travel - expert insight 1

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way in which many people around the world live their day-to-day lives. But the one industry that has suffered the most is travel.

Airlines, cruise lines and holiday companies have been forced to make drastic changes to their businesses as travel restrictions remain in place.

If the coronavirus pandemic continues, the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) said that 75million jobs and $ 2.1trillion (£1.7trillion) in revenue could be lost.

CEO of WTTC Gloria Guevara said that the potential job losses are “bringing real and profound worry to millions of families around the world.”

But one travel expert thinks that the industry could see an influx of new products which could completely transform travel post-coronavirus.

“I think we might travel with fewer pieces, maybe even reversible pieces.”

She explained that new, innovative fabrics which are anti-fungal could change the way people pack for their holidays.

“I think anything that gives us that sense of security – innovative fabrics, smart textiles – is an opportunity.

“Clothing that we see which is made for athletes – those technologies can be translated into clothing for travellers.

“There are already companies doing this on a smaller scale.”

She explained that the coronavirus is an opportunity for companies and businesses to come forward and create apps and products that will reassure people when they travel.

Pola thinks that travel clothing or fashion is just one of the areas which will change the future of travel.

“I think we will also see something like this in the luggage sector – again maybe some new fabrics or something that’s easy to disinfect or clean”, she said.
