By the end of December, 50% of all travel-supported jobs were predicted to be lost—an additional loss of 948,000 jobs and a total loss of 4.5 million direct travel jobs.  

THANK YOU to everyone who urged Congress to #SaveTravel throughout 2020. Your engagements helped secure additional relief for the industry in the COVID-19 Relief Bill passed in late December. You can read more about the travel-related provisions in the legislation here

We will need your continued involvement this year as we look to advance additional industry priorities to help #SaveTravel and rebuild our industry in 2021. New resources will be released soon.
