The Skift Recovery Index is a real-time measure of where the travel industry at-large — and the core verticals within it — stands in recovering from the Covid-19 pandemic. It provides the travel industry with a powerful tool for strategic planning, of utmost importance in this uncertain business climate.
The recovery index is a mixture of leading and trailing indicators, taking into account indicators ranging from traveler intent in the form of website visits and searches, to future bookings, to actual achieved occupancies, revenues and cancellations. It is not a representation of actual revenues achieved on the books, but instead a more holistic view of the health of the entire industry, and the different verticals within it.
The global Skift Recovery Index currently stands at 40 points relative to a baseline reading of 100 for the same week in 2019. This represents a slow recovery of 22 points from the absolute low of 18 in the week of April 5th, and a bump in performance after three weeks of stagnation.Read The Methodology
