The association’s monthly economic indicator predicts moderate travel expansion into late 2016, with international inbound growth rivaling that of domestic travel overall. For much of 2016 thus far, the strong U.S. dollar has proven a drag on the demand for international travel to the U.S., and April’s report predicts a welcome rebound. The April Current Travel Index (CTI) rose to 52.2, signaling the 76th straight month of growth for the travel industry (numbers above 50 indicate growth, and scores below 50 show contraction). In the full Travel Trends Index report, the 3- and 6-month LTI readings of 51.3 and 51.1, respectively, indicate that U.S. travel overall is expected to grow at a rate of around two percent through October 2016.
