 Friday, February 3, 2023 


The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), as per a research report, has noted that travel and tourism related jobs in Australia is in a sorry state.

As pet the Cities Economic Impact Report, there were just over 40,000 Travel & Tourism jobs in Perth in 2019. In 2020 this figure fell to just over 31,000, experiencing a slight increase to 34,000 in 2021 but is estimated to have fallen again in 2022 to just under 27,500.

Both Melbourne and Sydney are seeing stronger bounce backs for sector jobs. In Sydney, job levels in 2022 are predicted to be just over 118.5K, 16% below pre-pandemic levels, and in Melbourne job levels are anticipated to be 115k, just 6% below 2019.

The Cities Economic Impact Report, sponsored by Visa and researched in partnership with Oxford Economics, analysed key Travel & Tourism metrics across 82 cities around the world, including contribution to GDP, employment and traveller spend.

The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) represents the global travel & tourism private sector.
