Global forecast for 2019

Global hotel and air fares will rise by 1-3% in most industries and by 1-2% in most industries and powerful rivalry to control supply for national charges and oil prices will stay constant at US$ 75 per barrel. While the development in worldwide air travel is another year of higher trends in 2019, the rate of demand development is slowing. In the first six months of 2019, traffic increased by 7.0% year-on-year compared to 8.3% a year earlier. The growth of demand from lower air fares last year has decreased and some economies have weighed a moderation in financial operation. Demand for airlines to react to greater fuel and labor expenses by increasing average returns remains powerful enough without resorting to reported increases

Is it more difficult to forecast the environment during the times of Donald Trump and Brexit, protectionism and populism? It seems so for the forecasters of the Financial Times. Eight of the 20 issues we asked last year were incorrect and for several years our worst outcome. We were incorrect to say that the prosecution against Donald Trump would begin (although Edward Luce is splitting this year’s forecast) and supported the incorrect Mexican presidential candidate and was incorrect about the expenditure of the euro zone, and who would win the World Cup.
