London, UK (PRWEB) May 14, 2009
UK travel company DialAFlight reports that after a two week slump in sales of airline tickets to Mexico levels are picking up and getting closer to the normal seasonal average. DialAFlight's half-million plus customers are not allowing the health scare to put them off travelling, according to the firm's latest figures. Despite initial fears, the international travel economy has come out of the swine flu crisis relatively unscathed.
The Mexican health minister recently declared that the virus had appeared to have reached its most fearsome peak and is now fading. For the moment, at least, a fear that risk of a global pandemic would rage, is a fear that lurks at alert status 5, and has done so now for some time. Whilst this may not relax the masses, it dims some of the panic; it has been noted that infections outside Mexico have largely been mild and are treatable thanks to the antiviral medication, Tamiflu.
DialAFlight's swift return to trading health is largely a direct result of the outbreak itself. The prices of flights and accommodation in Mexico, the source of H1N1 cases, have come down dramatically. Restaurants and bars are offering two-for-one deals and hotels have cut prices in half.
Travel to the United States and Canada, where the majority of cases outside Mexico have occurred, remains largely unaffected, with flights continuing as usual to these destinations. Despite initial fears of a global pandemic to rival the devastation of the credit crunch, it seems that tourism and other business is stabilising, and DialAFlight for one certainly expects a full recovery.
