PRINCE Harry has complained that coronavirus travel bans have caused “acute hardship”.
Travel bans are in place around the world to stop the spread of coronavirus – with many countries, including the UK, cracking down especially hard over recent weeks amid fears of deadly mutant strains.
But writing in the foreword of Travalyst’s annual report, Harry complained that many communities around the world have suffered as a result of the collapse in tourism and suggested a “new optimism” was needed to get the industry back on its feet.
Prince Harry, who has been widely criticised for his use of private jets, also spoke about the environmental impact of global travel, complaining the industry isn’t doing enough to tackle climate change and pollution.
Harry insists he only flies private occasionally and usually takes domestic flights. He also claims to offset his carbon footprint on international flights.
