The travel industry is valued at over $7.1 trillion dollars and serves over 3.6 billion passengers across the world.
Yet, the big industry players across the end-to-end travel journey are struggling to keep up with the emergence of the new passenger - a more connected, mobile and demanding one. As a result, more and more startups are entering the scene, with new technology and solutions which raised $2.5B in deals this year. We decided to create a series of Runway Rundown reports to cover the most important trends and players in this emerging, TravelTech movement.
The Runway Rundown is a series of reports prepared by the Hack Horizon team to explore and discuss the current state of TravelTech innovation across different verticals in the travel industry.
