Outlook 'uncertain' says Dalata

Dalata has suggested it may not return to pre-pandemic levels of trade until 2024, following two years of Covid upheaval and the time it will take to fully recover.Dermot Crowley pic

The Group – which owns and operates the Clayton and Maldron chains – has said the near-term outlook “remains uncertain at present”, with new Covid variants and the continued spread of the virus still threatening to curtail widespread growth in international travel. 
Overseas visitors remain key to Dalata’s big city hotels, particularly in Dublin and London.
Nevertheless, Dalata has seen continued upward momentum since Irish-based hotels reopened in early June and virtually halved its first-half losses.
Dalata posted a group loss of €37.8m for the first half of this year, down from first-half losses of nearly €71m last year. First-half revenues were down 51%, year-on-year, at €39.6m; reflecting the reality that mainstream usage of its hotels in the UK and Ireland only resumed in May and June of this year.
