Airbnb booking platform to promote trips to Ukraine after the war

The State Agency for Tourism Development and the American company Airbnb have signed a memorandum. This was reported by Mariana Oleskiv, Head of the State Agency.

"Airbnb will promote Ukraine as a tourist destination! Today we have signed a joint memorandum and this is an unprecedented and very significant event," she wrote. 

"Everyone knows one of the world's largest platforms for booking accommodation and finding the most vivid impressions. However, not everyone knows how committed this wonderful company has been to supporting Ukraine since the beginning of the full-scale war. Now, Airbnb will help in the post-war recovery of Ukraine's tourism industry. We will work together to promote our country as a tourist destination."

According to Mariana Oleskiv, this also applies to Crimea as soon as it is liberated.

"This is a crucial step for our team at the State Agency for Tourism Development of Ukraine, as it is difficult to overestimate the economic impact of Airbnb's active work in our country," says the head of the State Agency. "As soon as it becomes safe and air travel resumes, Ukraine is predicted to become one of the main tourist destinations in Europe, especially for those countries that are currently supporting us in our fight for independence.  Airbnb is ready to become our reliable partner, sharing Ukraine's attractiveness among its millions of users and sharing data from the platform with us."
