COVID-19: We Stand United! Travel Media Unites to Throw Support Behind #OneTravelIndustry

NI Travel News Unites with #OneTravelIndustry movement

Travel trade media across UK & Ireland is uniting behind the #onetravelindustry movement, to bring competing media businesses together with one common goal during the coronavirus crisis.

Titles including ABTA Magazine, Cruise Adviser, Cruise Trade News, Northern Ireland Travel News, Selling Travel, Travel Bulletin, TravelMole and TTG are working together to stand behind the industry, at a time when the sector faces its biggest ever threat.

All the brands will be using #onetravelindustry to showcase best practice, tips and experiences from across the travel industry to share how companies large and small are dealing with the impact of the coronavirus.

The group will also share each other’s content under the hashtag, to ensure the widest exposure possible for the learnings and advice to come out of the crisis – demonstrating “one travel media”, uniting behind one travel industry.

Each business has been informing their readerships of the unfolding crisis and supporting the industry since it began and will continue to do so, separate to the campaign.

The travel media signatories, each committing to promote best practice in travel for #onetravelindustry, are:

  • Steve Hartridge, Editorial director, BMI Publishing
  • Jonathan Adair, CEO, Northern Ireland Travel News
  • Chris Pitchford, CEO, Real Response Media
  • Jeanette Ratcliffe, Publisher, Travel Bulletin
  • Graham McKenzie, Managing Director, TravelMole

Travel Agents and suppliers across the Province are working non-stop to help travellers reschedule their travel plans during this unprecedented crisis, but it is important to remember that we are all in this together.

It is easy to become overwhelmed by the initial onslaught of problems and the unprecedented challenges now being faced.

The travel industry in Northern Ireland is a close-knit family, always there to lend a hand to others during times of struggle, and we need to keep this at the forefront of our minds during this time of uncertainty.

Our industry has been the most heavily affected by the stringent travel measures imposed by countries across the globe. Many of the travel bans were imposed with little to no warning, leaving travel agencies and indeed the entire travel industry scrambling to do what they can to help customers.

With many still waiting to see what, if any, help the government will provide during these trying times, it’s understandable that nerves are fried. Livelihoods are on the line. However we are a resilient industry, and WE WILL SURVIVE.

It’s important not to lose sight of the fact that we are all facing the same pressures and we must strive to make sure that regardless of al the problems we are now facing, that we face them together and come out the other end as one.

Northern Ireland Travel News has been serving the Trade Industry and the Travelling Public in the Province for 30 years and in this current climate it is our responsibility to continue to serve the industry and provide support in whatever way we can.
