Supplementary notes

Because the amount of data about the impact of the novel Coronavirus on travel and tourism is very limited, the following assumptions need to be made in order to be able to quantify how the industry will be affected by this virus in 2020:
The epidemic will have a major impact on travel and tourism for six months.
The basis for the estimations was IATA’s forecast about the overall effect of COVID 19 on the flight industry (limited spread scenario).
The decreased demand for flights coincides with the reduced demand for leisure trips in general.
