Resumo

Na última década, o setor turístico em Portugal encontrava-se em forte ascensão, com subidas sustentadas e contínuas nas receitas e chegadas internacionais. Contudo, a atual pandemia parou abruptamente o setor das viagens em Portugal imobilizando a circulação das pessoas resultando em significativas mudanças nos comportamentos dos turistas no planeamento e consumo das viagens.

Uma amostra de mais de 300 turistas no Centro de Portugal, uma das regiões mais diversas em termos turísticos no país, permitiu perceber que a atual pandemia teve um impacto significativo nos planos de viagem, decisões e consumos turísticos. Por outro, foi possível igualmente avaliar a alteração de comportamentos e aceitação das novas medidas de segurança impostas no contexto da pandemia. Os resultados do estudo permitiram a indicação de estratégias para os gestores do destino para recuperar a atratividade turística num cenário Pós-COVID.
