AI’s impact on travel and tourism
AI’s influence in travel and tourism has rocketed. According to market analyses, AI-influenced revenue within the tourism sector witnessed an astonishing 50% growth from 2018 to 2021.
By 2024, this figure is anticipated to triple, showing AI’s monumental impact on travel.
We’ve already seen examples of AI chatbots created by airlines and booking platforms like Expedia and Emirates, enabling users to browse and book options from an interactive interface.
These use cases and others are set to expand as we push on into the age of generative AI.
