WTTC Reveals Travel and Tourism Future of G20

During the annual general meeting of International Air Transport Association (IATA) in Sydney, Australia the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) presented conclusions shared during the Tourism Ministers of G20 Economies meeting in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The report demonstrates between seven and 19 million future jobs in G20 countries can be created by the public and private sector working together on a seamless passenger experience.

WTTC estimates that between 12 percent and 31 percent of all future new travel and tourism jobs across G20 countries could be created by transitioning to a Seamless Passenger Journey and the use of technology and biometrics solutions, in addition to infrastructure investment. This includes making existing terminal facilities and processes more efficient, more secure and seamless.
