STATEMENT FROM NYC & COMPANY PRESIDENT AND CEO FRED DIXON ON WHITE HOUSE LIFTING TESTING MANDATE FOR INTERNATIONAL AIR TRAVELERS

"The lifting of the testing requirement for inbound international air travelers is very welcome news for New York City's travel and tourism industry, and will no doubt accelerate our continued recovery and that of the U.S.  We thank the Biden Administration for ending this mandate and giving the industry the opportunity to speed recovery and restore jobs in the process. In NYC, international travel represents 50 percent of spending in a typical year. In fact, it takes the spending power of four domestic visitors to equal the spending of one international traveler, so easing the entry process means a stronger and faster recovery."
