Airlines, Hotels & Travel OVERVIEW

    Both the United Nations and the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), estimate that more than 1.1 billion tourists traveled the world during 2014.
    WTTC found that the global travel and tourism industry supported 105 million jobs on a direct basis in 2014.
    The industry generated $2.4 trillion in direct global contribution to GDP (gross domestic product). Hotels and resorts have been enjoying good to excellent occupancy rates, which enabled them to raise prices, while many new properties have been built or are under construction in promising markets.
