Development of
travel and tourism
in
the 1960's. The legislation is when they created the British Tourist Authority and Tourists Boards. Legislation Improved education can effect the travel and tourism industry because if a child’s education is improved when they’re younger, they’re then able to learn more, get more qualifications and come out of school with a higher paying job, which means they could end up working within the travel and tourism sector or because of their high paying job, they would have more of a disposable income to spend on yearly luxury holidays benefiting the travel and tourism industry by earning them a profit.

All lifestyle changes have shaped the travel and tourism since the 1960’s because of constant changes in, income and education. All factors contribute to the travel and tourism sector greatly. Without an income, citizens would not be able to use that income on holidays abroad, as things like the recession have affected the amount of money people have nowadays many holiday planners and tour operators have had to decrease prices and create better package deals to allow many people on low disposable income afford a holiday during tough times, which can earn and lose the travel and tourism sector a lot of money. Lifestyle changes. A lifestyle change would be a change in disposable income. If someone has a high income, they are known to have more money to splash out on a yearly holiday where as people with low income are more likely to not be able to afford the essentials as well as a yearly holiday, affecting the travel and tourism industry because if a higher percentage of people have a low income, not many will spend it on holidays loosing the industry their profit.

Age is also a lifestyle change because as the travel and tourism industry has developed, it has had to change it’s products and services to fit in with different age groups. Holiday planners have created a package holiday to party islands like Spain which is directed at 18-30 year olds. Also holiday planners have had to adapt to younger children joining their parents on holidays meaning they have had to include more activities for the younger children to enjoy whilst in that country for that’s set time making the holiday enjoyable for all and more popular. Lifestyle changes An example of a travel and tourism product would be a package holiday. Package holidays are all inclusive and include lodging, transportation and food. In the 1960’s package holidays started to develop with few of them being sold and advertised by tour operators, offering many citizens from the United Kingdom a first chance to travel abroad. As package holidays started to grow in popularity they developed further and more and more package holidays became available to countries around the globe. With the introduction of popular package holidays, a second yearly holiday became even more possible for those with a regular but not excessive income.

Package holiday also developed into specific package holidays instead of just a holiday abroad somewhere. Skiing package holidays became popular as well as regular package holidays. Product development The development of transport since the 1960’s has had a huge effect on the travel and tourism industry today by changing the way we travel. With the development of aircraft, cars, trains and boats, transport has become much easier for all, especially the transportation of goods such as food and fuel.

Transport has shaped the present travel and tourism industry with the many choices of transport that are now available to choose from. You’re able to travel by sea – ferries, cruise ships, air - airplanes, road – busses, cars and rail – trains. All forms of transport bring in a huge amount of money to the industry, for example airplanes. Since the invention of airplanes, holidaying abroad has been made a whole lot easier, with hundreds of flights every day to destinations across the world. Without all these forms of transport, citizens would not be able to travel abroad or even travel around their home place, affecting transport development by having none and also affecting destination development because without being able to go to that certain destination it would not be able to develop, grow in popularity and be well known, losing money for the industry. Transport Road:
The demise of trams. the underground and the diesel bus superseded the tram and the need for it. Since the 1960’s busses have taken over much of the role of trams. The problem with trams was that they required their own rails and could not go freely along streets. As traffic increased, they became inconvenient. The last tram ran in Edinburgh in 1956 and the last in Glasgow in 1963. Since then cars and busses have been developed majorly making transport a lot simpler but also harder for many people. With there being so many cars and busses on the road, traffic often builds up in many places causing problems for most travellers.

Sea:
Since the 1960’s new types of ships have been developed with changing demands. Roll-on roll-off car ferries, with doors at both ends were developed because people wanted to drive their cars for their holidays. In coastal waters, hovercraft and hydrofoils provide passengers with high-speed services. Super tankers have become the giants of the sea, transporting oil to meet the world’s fuel needs. Transport Air:
In 1958, Qantas became the first airline in the world to introduce a regular round-the-world service. In 1959, Qantas also offered regular flights to America, London via New York and London via India. By the 1960s, propeller-driven aircraft were less common , as jet aircraft became dominant. International and domestic air travel became cheaper and more comfortable and hours were continuously being shaved off travel times. Many of the major airports are like miniature towns, containing shops, restaurants and even places of worship. There are often hotels nearby.

Rail
During the 1950s, most people took long distance journeys by steam train. In 1960, however, diesel trains began running . They were much faster and cleaner than the old steam engines and could carry much greater loads. Diesel trains also eliminated the heavy rocking motion of steam trains, causing less wear-and-tear on rail tracks and providing a smoother ride for passengers. Transport Transport systems provide jobs and allow the delivery of materials needed to build cities and towns. Transport also serves the needs of the people who live in those towns - providing means to deliver food and carrying citizens to and from their destinations.

Air travel: 1950s
Air travel was not a common form of transport in the early 1950s. Aircraft were powered by propellers and their cabins were not pressurised. As a result, plane trips were noisy and aircraft could not fly at very high altitudes. Aeroplane trips were also long, with frequent stops to refuel. In the late 1950s, however, Qantas purchased a new Boeing 707 jet-powered aircraft that could fly faster and carry more passengers. The new Boeing jets could also reach higher altitudes and fly above turbulent weather. Transport development Technological development is the development of anything technological that has or can be used within the travel and tourism industry. Since the inventing of the internet, technology has developed dramatically because of the way we now use the internet to book online also developing tourism with how simple it now is to book through the internet and travel abroad.

Since the 1960’s technology has developed hugely with new products such as check in systems (computers) at airports that are easier products for customers to use making their whole experience easier, forever profiting the travel and tourism sector.

Technology has shaped the present travel and tourism industry because of the new technological developments over the past 50 years that have made travelling and the overall experience better for citizens. With new systems involving computers and the internet, different ways of booking holidays, checking in at airports, and payment, holidays have become a much simpler and quicker product to buy and enjoy. Technological development Destinations have developed thoroughly since the 1960’s through promotion and popularity. The development is that destinations have become more well known in this present day and age. Years and years ago, many destinations weren’t even known to some and were never visited, though now are visited regularly and have become a popular destination.

The growth of destination development has had an effect on the industry by changing tourism, and destinations forever. With the growth of popularity in certain destinations, visitor number’s increase dramatically bringing in a huge profit due to the amount of people spending their money.

Destination development has shaped the present travel and tourism sector by changing the awareness of certain destinations. Destination development is vital in the travel and tourism sector because without the ever changing development of such places, the industry would lose a serious amount of money, destinations need to develop to meet increasing tourist numbers and the demand of new facilities.
