People feel holidays are ”non-negotiable”

Demand for air travel in June increased at the slowest rate since 2003People are continuing to take holidays this summer, despite the credit crunch, because they feel that holidays are "non-negotiable", one industry expert has suggested.

Tom Hall, travel editor of the Lonely Plant series of destination guide books, said that the "savvy traveller … can still travel cheaply".

He added: "People are increasingly aware that if you want real value when you are in your destination you need to get outside of the euro zone and that can mean mid-haul or long-haul.

"I think people are aware that there is real value available there."

According to a report by the International Air Travel Association (IATA), world passenger numbers were up by 3.8 per cent in June compared to a year ago.

However, this was the slowest growth in air travel demand since the SARS crisis in 2003.

"With consumer and business confidence falling and sky-high oil prices, the situation will get a lot worse," said Giovanni Bisignani, director general and chief executive of IATA.
