Eighteen months later, the outgoing cabinet decides to support the general Corona for companies To stop as of October 1. A compensation plan is being prepared for nightclubs and discos, and guarantee plans for the event and travel segment will run until January 1. But they say this is not always enough.
“Support will stop due to the end of the Corona measures, but the procedures for travel outside Europe remain in place in our travel sector. The travel advice must be modified so that we can at least provide for travel outside Europe. It has been silent for a year and a half,” says ANVR, which includes the umbrella travel.
Traveling outside Europe is still a problem
This was also noted by Ibo Steinhausen, director of travel organizations VNC and Askja Reizen. Its sales volume is down 85 percent compared to 2019. It offers flights to China, New Zealand and Iceland, among others. “I don’t think we should get as much money as possible for as long as possible, but the Corona measures have not stopped for us at all. Three-quarters of the countries are in orange. So I think it is realistic that the support will also stop extending for us.”
The government recognizes that the tourism sector and the travel industry may face “changing demand”. But the prospects are good, because the number of vacancies outnumbers the unemployed. “You cannot expect taxpayers to continue to support companies that are experiencing structural and long-term changes as a result of COVID-19,” said Steve Block, Deputy Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate.
