7-Aug-2013 3:28 PM

World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) president and CEO David Scowsill, speaking at the CAPA Australia Pacific Aviation Summit, noted (07-Aug-2013) the intrinsic link between aviation and tourism, both for leisure and business travel. He noted the "airline business will continue to grow" as "travel is a way of life", which "drives economy and creates jobs". He noted "even in the toughest economic times, this industry continues to be a priority for consumers, to create jobs and drive economies". He also noted the social benefits of travel and tourism, alongside the economic benefits, and said increased travel has a link to a reduction in conflict.
