Many people may postpone their international travel plans due to concerns about the spread of a new variant of the coronavirus in some countries and the possibility of flight bans by countries like Dubai, France and Singapore, a report revealed. investigation. The survey, based on more than 15,000 responses from more than 10,000 people from 204 cities and conducted by the online platform LocalCircles, also found that up to 42% of respondents had no travel plan for travel. interiors. After the lockdown, the government has yet to allow the regular operation of international flights, but operates transport bubbles with 23 countries, including the UK through the Vande Bharat mission. However, India has imposed a temporary delay on flights to and from the UK from December 23 to December 31 following the detection of the new variant of the virus in the UK. LocalCircles has conducted an investigation to understand the impact of this new strain of coronavirus on Indian international travel plans over the next three months. The platform observed an increase in the number of messages from citizens suggesting that many could withhold their travel plans to any international country due to the fear and anxiety of being infected with this new strain as well as the possibility of flight bans from other air hubs such as Dubai, Singapore, Paris, etc. have increased, LocalCirles said in a statement. The survey also attempted to understand people’s plans to undertake domestic travel over the next three months, as with the reduction in the number of cases and fatigue from COVID, many more have started traveling since October, did he declare. Consumers were asked about their situation with regard to international travel over the next three months, according to the online platform. “The local circle received 7,820 responses, of which up to 71% of consumers said they did not intend to take an international trip in the next 3 months. while 2 percent said they had reservations and would likely travel, and 2 percent said they had reservations but could cancel depending on the COVID situation, ”he said. In addition, up to 16% said they had plans but could not travel due to COVID, while 7% said they could travel depending on the coronavirus situation. “Overall consumer comments suggest that the new strain of virus that was recently detected in the UK and associated flight bans, with the majority planning international travel within the next 3 months, should hold back,” the investigation. When only consumers planning to travel internationally were surveyed – while keeping the 71 percent of consumers who did not intend to undertake international travel in the next three months out of reach, it seems that of the 100 percent of consumers who were planning to travel abroad, 59 percent who had “plans but no reservations” are unlikely to travel, and 7 percent who had reservations will cancel those reservations and will not travel, according to the survey. Eight percent of people who have already booked international travel are likely to travel and an additional 26% who do not have a reservation will likely plan their international trip within the next three months depending on how the COVID situation evolves, he said. he declares. Overall, the survey indicates that the mutant coronavirus and the associated flight bans led 66% of consumers to plan international travel in the next 3 months to hold back. However, if India is successful in containing the spread of Covid and the new viral mutations, domestic travel is likely to be plentiful. And if that happens, it seems likely that many could cancel their trip to Switzerland in favor of Dalhousie or Kashmir. (This story was posted from a wireline agency with no text changes.
