Global study of youth travel market

The aim of a study called New Horizons is being undertaken by Emirates and the World Youth Student and Educational (WYSE) Travel Confederation to provide a global overview of the youth and student travel market. WYSE Travel Confederation and UNWTO have estimated that this market accounts for more than 280 million international arrivals in 2016.

“Emirates corporate partnership with WYSE Travel Confederation over the last several years clearly demonstrates their commitment to understanding the needs and wants of today’s young travellers and working directly with the industry players in this sector for decades,” said David Chapman, Director General of WYSE Travel Confederation. “WYSE is pleased that Emirates will support this very important study.”

Among many other questions about the young traveler, New Horizons tries to answer:

• Who travels, where, why, and how
• How trips are planned and booked
• How much is spent and on what

Last conducted by WYSE Travel Confederation in 2012 and generating more than 34,000 responses from 137 countries, New Horizons discovered that on average the youth and student traveler spent just under EUR 3,000 for his/her last main international trip – a growth of 40% since the 2007 survey.

Suppliers of travel products tailored to the youth and student traveler are invited to participate in the fourth New Horizons study.

Emirates will offer two round-trip tickets to one lucky respondent of the New Horizons survey.
