Asia Pacific travellers favouring regional destinations | The Insight Files | Scoop.it

Travellers from the Asia Pacific are favouring getaways closer to home and within the APAC region compared with holidays that require long international flights, according to Visa's Global Travel Intentions Study 2015. The Study found similar patterns among their global peers, with an overall decline in the number of travellers choosing to take long-haul flights (9 hours or more) in favour of short-haul flights (4 hours or less). 23% of respondents reported taking long flights on their most recent trip, down from 29% in 2013, while the number of respondents who reported taking shorter flights on their most recent trip rose slightly to 46% from 43% in 2013. On average, global travellers spent seven hours of travelling time on their most recent trip. Find out more.
