US Travel Industy to add 90K jobs in 2010…

Posted on 06 November 2009

The U.S. Travel Association says that modest increases in leisure, business and international inbound travel in 2010 will enable the industry to add nearly 90,000 American jobs. Leisure travel is expected to rise 2.0%, business travel is projected to increase by 2.5% and international inbound travel will increase by 3.0%. These job gains come on the heels of 400,000 combined travel industry job losses in 2008 and 2009, said USTA. The travel industry is uniquely capable of adapting to economic upswings and quickly adding tens of thousands of jobs, said Roger Dow, president and CEO of the U.S. Travel Association.

OP/ED: I believe the number of loss jobs in 2008 and 2009 is higher than 400K.
