New travel industry lobby group proposed

Travel industry bodies are looking at coming together to create a single lobby group to tackle issues affecting the industry as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Early discussions have been held between AITO and Advantage and a number of other leading travel organisations, but it is understood that ABTA has not been involved.

Representatives of various organisations, including the Scottish Passenger Agents' Association and the Business Travel Association, have held a video meeting to discuss the formation of an alliance.

Airlines will be represented by IATA and the Board of Airline Representatives in the UK, which also took part in the initial meeting.

A source told TravelMole that a second meeting will take place in a couple of weeks.
