How modern companies are disrupting business travel

Article | March 4, 2020

For decades, people had two ways to make travel arrangements. There’s the do-it-yourself (DIY) approach, beloved by individual travelers and small groups for its budget-friendliness and accommodation of various preferences.

Article | March 4, 2020

With trade shows cancelled and companies limiting or even banning travel, Mark Manduca, aviation analyst at Citi, recently raised the question: “Will corporate travel ever truly recover again?” When the coronavirus crisis is over, will companies that have managed just fine with video conferencing decide to carry on, given how much cheaper it is?
