Air Cargo Has Removed The Seatings From Airplanes To Increase Cargo Capacity
Air Canada is trying best to help Canadians that need help. Particular Boeings are used for delivering medical and food supplies in different parts of the country. Air Canada removed the seatings from the Boeing 777 to have more capacity for cargo. Time-sensitive supplies are delivered by Air Canada and representatives of the company believe that citizens won’t have any issues when it comes to necessary supplies.
Air Canada was one of the biggest companies for international travellers. Unfortunately, the tourism industry has crashed hard after closing the borders. Not only Canada but the whole civilization joined the movement and changed the rules regarding immigration. The tourism industry won’t be the same after the COVID-19 crisis.
Canada’s economy will lose billions of dollars due to tourism crash
The tourism industry has already crashed and some of the low-budget companies leave the industry. Unfortunately, the biggest countries will get the hit sooner or later. According to the economic team of Canada, the country’s tourism industry will lose billions of dollars in 2020. It will be a big hit for Canadian companies that focused on the tourism industry. The last three years were record-breaking for Canada, especially for gaming tourism. Unfortunately, gaming tourism will see the biggest hit. Gaming tourism became popular in Canada after allowing local casino venues to offer services to international travellers. Canadian casinos have many advantages over the casinos in the US and EU. Tourists have a chance to enjoy playing slots online while exploring the wild nature of Canada. The digital casino industry is very developed in Canada, and tourists love that space especially when they want to have a perfect vacation and enjoy gambling at the same time. Gaming tourism will have the biggest crash and companies are prepared for this. Although the number of international tourists has frozen, casino websites took advantage of the worldwide market online.
2019 was a record-breaking year for tourism in Canada
For the third year in a row, a record-breaking number of tourists visited Canada. In 2019, the number of visitors reached 22.1 million for the first time ever, exceeding 22 million. The number of international inbound tourists from the countries other than the USA reached 7.15 million, breaking the record of 2018 – 6.7 million. The tourists stayed longer and spent more money. The tourism industry, with a share of $ 43.5 billion in GDP, generated around $ 104.9 billion, and provided 1 in every 10 jobs, according to Destination Canada – Canada’s national marketing organization. Destination Canada analyzes data and comes up with new marketing strategies, advertising Canada as a four-season destination, exciting the growth of demand from 10 countries: Australia, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, the UK, and the US. The diversity of the source markets provides useful information for keeping the growth, even when some regions are unstable. Destination Canada provides inspiration for more tourists to visit more places in the country and enjoy the diverse Indigenous culture of Canada. These strategies are profitable for businesses of all scales and different communities.
Canada’s tourism industry growth in numbers in 2019, Ottawa is a big winner
The 4.6% growth in the number of tourists visiting the country resulted in the number of international visitors visiting Ottawa to grow by 5%. Julia Thompson, a spokesperson for Ottawa Tourism said that there are indications of tourism in Ottawa growing due to the visitors from overseas, non-U.S. visitors. The number of tourists from the United States will probably be the same as that of 2018. The 90% of the visitors coming to Ottawa are from within the country, the majority of them being from Montreal and Toronto. The total number of visitors to Ottawa in 2018 was 11 million. While Ottawa Tourism has yet to release the complete data of 2019, Canada’s overall growth of the tourist industry was a great contributor to the expansion of Ottawa’s own tourism. “The record number of arrivals shows once more that tourism is a strong and sustainable sector that benefits business and communities, large and small, across Canada,” said the Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages Mélanie Joly.
