This report discusses the percentage of tourists who travel by air versus by land and by water for established tourism groups versus future tourism groups.

“As shown below, the Future tourism nations attract far fewer tourists via air than their Established and Emergent counterparts which leaves them bereft of the previously discussed benefits. As a country develops and markets air services it increases its ability to attract higher yielding foreign passengers who will spend more while they are visiting a country” (pg 70).
