Report Overview

In January 2022 we rebranded the Skift Recovery Index into the Skift Travel Health Index, to better represent our desire to track the travel industry’s performance beyond the impact of Covid-19. This archived report might still make reference to the Skift Recovery Index.

This report highlights the latest insights from the Skift Recovery Index. The index covers travel’s performance from December 29th, 2019 to August 29th, 2020 (weeks 1 to 35). This report focuses on the performance during the month of August.

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.

Since the last update in July, we have added data from Aviasales and Onyx CenterSource to the index. Aviasales, a major travel search engine in Russia, offers us a better insight into search and booking behavior of Russian travelers. Onyx CenterSource, a provider of payment solutions for the hospitality industry, gives a better insight into hotel commissions. We also continue to work with Amadeus, Arrivalist, Collinson, Criteo, Duetto, Hotelbeds, Key Data Dashboard, OAG, RateGain, Shiji Group, SimilarWeb, SiteMinder, Skyscanner, Sojern, Transparent, and TrustYou as data partners.
