He further said: âYou know initially, when the world was hit by the pandemic, the demand for travel stopped. Fortunately, we are now seeing a gradual month-over-month increase in demand for travel and travel products in general. This, together with the multiple approved vaccines now available in many countries around the world, including Nigeria, makes us more positive for the future. This is evidenced by the decrease in travel restrictions around the world. This makes us very excited as we begin our quest to create travel opportunities for everyone. “
