Increased air access between Southern and East Africa will enable diversified holidays

    Tourvest Destination Management CEO Martin Weist commented on how the number of new air access routes between Southern and East Africa will change traveller behaviour (Tourism Update, 22-Feb-2018). He stated “increased air access allows for multi-country combination packages using the particular strength of each country in terms of the focus areas: bush, beach, culture, etc”. Mr Weist however warned that while there will be new circuits, they are likely to only appeal to a niche market, adding that it is unlikely as the average stay for holidays is on the decline.
