Now Available: How Travel & Tourism Benefits From Peace – A Statistical Analysis of the Asian Experience



The report cites the example of 12 countries in both South Asia and Southeast Asia that have emerged from decades of colonialism and conflict in the last few decades and have begun to convert battlefields into trading/tourism fields.

IATA releases 2015 safety performance - No fatal jet hull losses


2015 was another year of contrasts when it comes to aviation’s safety performance. In terms of the number of fatal accidents, it was an extraordinarily safe year. And the long-term trend data show us that flying is getting even safer. Yet we were all shocked and horrified by two deliberate acts–the destruction of Germanwings 9525 and Metrojet 9268. While there are no easy solutions to the mental health and security issues that were exposed in these tragedies, aviation continues to work to minimize the risk that such events will happen again,” said Tony Tyler, IATA’s Director General and CEO. Read More.
