It is worst than we thought for travel industry, this virus hurt badly to the travel company like us as well, we depend on season trade, After long winter our hope was to make some living by working in spring, summer, and autumn. But 2020 looks like every all efforts from last many years is gone in to bin, so much investment will be never recovered again. This was never ever thoughts of.
Small, medium, or large industry all effected by this pandemic we actually don’t know when its gonna be over and how life gonna be after this in travel industry. Is people going to travel as before? We Hope so.
