The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) and the Government of Aruba have announced a new partnership to launch the world's first pilot program that links aviation and non-air destination services by using biometric technology to create a seamless, secure and easy travel experience from flight to car rental and hotel check-in, while also improving border security and business efficiency.
A toolkit of best practices aimed at tourism ministers, sector leaders, and policymakers worldwide was presented this week during the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) Global Summit in Seville, Spain.
Speaking to an adoring crowd at the World Travel & Tourism Council summit here, former President Barack Obama told the travel industry it needs to make its case to world leaders about tourism's economic benefits.
“Travel & Tourism is truly the best partner for governments to generate economic growth, create jobs and reduce poverty”.
The sector also supported 319 million jobs worldwide, according to a new WTTC report
