Statistics

Driven by India’s impressive luxury market growth, South Asia’s luxury travel market will expand at a faster rate than any other region explored.Other regions where luxury travel will outpace overall travel include Western and Eastern Europe, North America and Southeast Asia (including Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines). These regions all demonstrate growing ultra-wealthy classes that are increasingly mobile and are driving global investment in the luxury travel industry.

The graph (above) shows a steady decline in business class bookings in Europe, which was probably driven by the economic recession and accompanying austerity measures. Meanwhile, in North America, the opposite has been the case, with business class traffic continuing to grow despite the recession.Asia experienced the biggest increase in business class flight bookings during this time. This was likely spurred by the continent’s impressive GDP growth, rapidly expanding global business networks, and by a new affluent class of travellers throughout the region that is eager to book leisure trips in business class.
