Now that space travel is starting to be open to all (under the condition to be very rich for the moment!), it is interesting to look at it from the hospitality industry point of view.
We may see the realization of a multi-planetary society as a possible reality.
Every market can be affected, regardless of hospitality and tourism.
Consumers will need to enjoy Zero G, and go to the moon, or perhaps Mars, in order to refresh the white sandy beaches in the catalogs of tour agents and the fantasies of tourists.
Some say that it will likely be not possible to convey travelers in the area even as supplying decent, not to mention high-preferred service.
It actually started with American businessman Dennis Tito as the first space tourist to visit the International Space Station in 2001. Mark Shuttleworth, Anousheh Ansari and Charles Simonyi followed him in the following years. With SpaceX, Virgin Galactic and Orion Span, it is now possible to imagine the future of hotels in space and a significant increase in space travelers who expect hospitality industry groups to step up and start offering packages.
It really began when Virgin Galactic partnered with celebrities (Tom Hanks, Leonardo DiCaprio, and others) on a journey into space, offering not just an experience, but a journey through zero gravity and the everyday life of an astronaut.
Origin and Virgin Galactic are setting the trend, and hospitality groups should share and follow suit. It is indisputable that the world is in an unprecedented rapid development and it has become impossible for us at this time.
At Amsa Hospitality, we believe that the space experience transcends any luxury and will truly change the standards of the hospitality industry because it is a truly priceless experience and the utmost in luxury. Therefore and for sure space would not be beautiful without the authentic Arab hospitality that stretched not only across time but also across the universes.
Who knows! We may see honeymoon packages in space in the near future. Will you be the next one for space tourism?
