But first, here is a brief overview of the top travel innovation, technology and startup news:

  • Almost a year ago, Amazon launched Amazon Explore, offering virtual tours led by locals. Now, the company is including small group experiences, so up to seven people can book and attend the same live experience together, but from different locations.
  • Breeze Airways is coming strong: just this week the company announced they will be buying 20 more Airbus A220 jets. “Breeze will take delivery of its first A220 next month, on October 26. After that, Breeze will take delivery of a total of 80 A220s at one per month for the next six and a half years.”
