As per the data released by travel intelligence company ForwardKeys, visitor number have remained same for travelers numbers visiting UK in spite of the recent terror attacks that has adversely affected the country in recent months. Data to June 17th explains forward bookings for international arrivals in London for July/August were 12% in advance of what they were at the same point in 2016 respectively, ahead of the European average, which is at present 7.8% ahead.
In the coming July and August, the positive outlook for travel to London has a chance to fall or rise in coming the weeks, as expressed by the ForwardKeys. However, it has held up pretty good ever since the attack on London Bridge, as prior to the attack, bookings for July and August were 16% ahead.
ForwardKeys research also points out the fact that after the London Bridge attack, there was no air cancellation to the UK whatsoever. Even though, there has been a steady hold up in new bookings.
Staring at the arrivals from the beginning of June and forward to bookings for the rest of June, ForwardKeys anticipates that June has a possibility to show double-digit growth on last year with 11% ahead.
