Members of all sectors of the travel industry are urged to join a protest in London this Thursday.

Travel Agents Reform Group Engaged Together (TARGET) is asking people to bring their banners and join forces outside Parliament next Thursday, ahead of the House of Commons debate on support for the aviation, travel and tourism industries.

TARGET Co-Founder Jill Waite said: “After last week’s traffic light disaster for the travel industry, members are saying enough is enough and we have to get the message across it in a stronger way.

“We want everyone in the travel industry to try to attend from 9am.

“This includes travel agents, tour operators, airlines, airport, consortia and trade bodies.

“Bring your own banners to #savetravel.”

TARGET Co-Founder Graeme Brett added: “We know it’s early for everyone to get to London but the Parliamentary session starts at 9.30am with international trade questions, then a statement from the Leader of the House and the debate on support for the aviation, travel and tourism starts straight after.

“We were bombarded with messages yesterday asking us to arrange this and we hope that as many people in the industry as possible will attend.

“We are also reminding everyone to write to their Member of Parliament ahead of the debate and ask them to speak in the debate calling for more support for the travel industry.”
