OAG helps enable Skift's Travel Health Index by providing flight data (powered by OAG Metis). The Index records travel performance along with other key data points and is a vital source to track the travel industry’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Skift Travel Health Index is 106 in September 2023.
Highlights from this month's Skift Travel Health Index include:
- Argentina and China lead the charts but all regions registered growth over the previous month.
- Performance across all travel sectors is on an upward trajectory. Hotel performance did experience a 2-point dip this month, but is still 9pp above the same month in 2019.
- The aviation sector has improved by one point over August 2023, from 95 to 96 points.
" The Skift Travel Health Index stands at 106 this month, achieving a new record high. However, there is a disparity in the performance of several countries in the Asia Pacific, suggesting that efforts to attract Chinese travelers to nations dependent on inbound tourism may be progressing at a slower pace than anticipated." - Saniya Zanpure
