Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Helicopter Tourism Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has been affecting every business globally since December 2019. The continuous growth in the number of virus-infected patients compelled governments to put a restriction on transportation of goods and humans' movement. The tourism sector witnessed severe losses due to travelling restrictions imposed by several country's government across the world, which led drastic fall in number of visitors at tourist places. According to latest situation report from the World Health Organization (WHO), the major tourism countries such as the US, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, the UK, Russia, Turkey, Brazil, India, and China are some of the worst affected due to COVID-19 outbreak. Additionally, the social or physical distancing measures imposed by governments have put limitations on the social gathering at tourist destinations. These adversities led to the reduction in the business volume of helicopter tourism market.

Sightseeing with the help of helicopters are rapidly gaining interest among the population as it offers an innovative way for exploring a scenic attraction or a vacation spot. Owing to the maneuverability of helicopters in several directions, these rotorcrafts help the visitors in getting a closer view of scenic places including beaches, volcanoes, and mountain ranges.
