Europe’s tourism and travel businesses are among the largest economic casualties of this COVID-19 pandemic, confronting plummeting earnings. With boundaries limited, airplanes grounded, leisure, and hotels attractions shut, the sector has endured an unprecedented shock.

We are going to be talking about the challenges ahead in a distinctive Euronews-hosted digital discussion,’Rethinking and Reviving Travel and Tourism,’ on Thursday 4 June at 15:00 CET.
We will also be placing some of the questions on our board.
