Abstract

The head of the European Travel Commission may have summed it up best when he said recently that the pandemic spawned a revolution that has unified the travel industry to build back better. Among the most notable beneficial side effects of travel’s partial pause may be the momentum it has created to bring together a broad cross-section of companies and groups to advance conversations, and initiatives, around sustainability. With evidence that most Covid-19 infections are spread through the airborne transmission of aerosolized respiratory droplets, many hotels have updated their systems to increase the outdoor-air exchange rate and add HEPA filters or ultraviolet technologies.
