Md. Ashikur Rahman Avi, Mohammed Mosaraf Hossain, and Dr. Md. Amirul Islam
Though there is some secondary research regarding the impact of Coronavirus disease (Covid-19) on the overall tourism and hospitality industry in Bangladesh, the component-based detailed analysis is still uncovered. Therefore, this research aims at analyzing the impact of Covid-19 on the major components (accommodation, transportation, restaurants, and travel agency and tour operations) of the tourism and hospitality industry. In addressing the research aim, the qualitative approach is followed in this paper, and both primary and secondary data collection techniques are utilized. The collected data are analyzed using a theme-based approach. The findings found that the accommodation and transportation sectors are badly affected by Covid-19 compared to the restaurant and travel agency sectors. Based on the findings, this paper generates some recovery strategies from the industry associates’ perspective. The findings, discussions, and suggestions of this paper are expected to add value to existing tourism literature and it sets a benchmark for the researchers, policy-makers, and practitioners of the tourism and hospitality industry of Bangladesh.
