Report Overview

This report highlights the transition of the Skift Travel Health Index in 2024.

The Skift Travel Health Index is a real-time measure of the performance of the travel industry at large, and the core verticals within it. The Index provides the travel industry with a powerful tool for strategic planning and tracking global travel performance.

Skift Research launched the Index in May 2020 as the Skift Recovery Index. At the start of 2022 we rebranded the Index as the Skift Travel Health Index, to reflect some far-ranging changes: the addition of many more indicators, additional data partners. 2023 brought two additional data partners into the fold. TravelgateX has started to provide pricing data for hotel stays, and Nium now provides us with transaction values for flights.

We are also thankful for the continued support of our other data partners: Amadeus, Aviasales, Beyond, CarTrawler, Cendyn, Collinson, Criteo, Duetto, ForwardKeys, Hotelbeds, Key Data Dashboard, Lighthouse, OAG, Onyx CenterSource, RateGain, Shiji Group, Skyscanner, Sojern, and TrustYou. Their data allows us to provide you with a monthly assessment of travel’s performance.

In 2024, we are optimistic about this being a great year for travel as we transition away from the COVID era. As a result, going forward, the Skift Travel Health Index is shifting its focus to year-on-year (YoY) indexing instead of continuing to compare against 2019 levels.
