The Skift Travel Health Index is 107 in February 2024.

Highlights from this month's Skift Travel Health Index include:

  • Growth numbers in the Asia Pacific region appear to be stabilizing, reducing slightly compared to previous months.
  • Having suffered a decline following earthquakes in Turkiye last year, travel performance in the country shows a 16% YoY growth.
  • International inbound tourists to Japan are projected to reach 33 million this year, reflecting a 31% surge compared to 2023, and a 4% increase over 2019.
  • Melbourne & Sydney Hotels have taken their turn to experience the "Swiftie bump" with Sydney seeing a 93% occupancy level three days before the eras tour, a high level which persisted across the four day concert period.

" The travel industry continues to demonstrate a positive momentum in February 2024, gaining 7% year-on-year. Asia Pacific continues to be the frontrunner but slightly reducing growth levels indicate a trend towards normalization.. " - Saniya Zanpure
