In this article, the author says that there are reasons for cautious optimism for the travel industry in Great Britain though one cannot expect a return to boom times. The budget which has imposed a 113 billion pounds squeeze will have an impact on discretionary spending and may lead to strong market conditions. However, the proposed increase in Air Passenger Duty is disappointing , though the 50 percent pay increase announced by Flight Centre for agents is a welcome move.
