Skal International creates committee to supports travel agencies/tour operators, airline passengers amid COVID-19 challenges

The International Skal Council has announced it has established a committee to work on guiding and advocating for the restructuring in the travel industry, focused on strategies on how to protect and guide the travel, tourism and hospitality during COVID-19, the company said.

Since early May, the International Skal Council body has been holding several meetings internally as well as with several other Global Travel Associations to listen to the issues within the industry amid COVID-19 crises. This working committee was necessitated due to the collapse of the Travel, Tourism and Hospitality Industry across the globe amid to COVID -19 pandemic and its negative effects on travel agencies and airline passengers worldwide. Skal International, with 35% of its over 14,000 members worldwide being travel agents/tour operators and airlines, has been concerned due to the deprived refunds and the lack of transparency practiced by some airlines to protect the travel agencies and airline passengers across the globe.
