WTTC Calls on EU Governments to Avoid Severe Travel Restriction

Brussels, Belgium, December 22, 2021 / TRAVELINDEX / Julia Simpson, WTTC President & CEO, joined other EU Travel & Tourism stakeholders in urging EU governments against reintroducing damaging and ineffective travel restrictions.

“Putting travel bans in place is illogical. Fully vaccinated travellers should be able to move around freely.

“The World Health Organisation says closing borders does not work. Omicron is already well established throughout Europe. This is an act of political one-upmanship decided by people whose livelihoods do not depend on Travel & Tourism.”
