Accor anticipates that more than 70% of its global network will reopen by the start of July.
In recent weeks, Accor has also seen renewed interest in travel demand, with hotel reservations doubling.
In Asia-Pacific, more than 940 of the group’s 1228 hotels are now open, representing over 76% of its properties, with more being added each week.
Following recent government announcements, this trend is expected to continue.
