Millennial business travellers push the future of corporate travel
UK based travel techspert Travelport has published data which suggests millennial travellers are driving corporate travel towards a post-digital era in Asia Pacific (APAC) as their exceptionally high use of digital channels is being met by mounting frustrations with existing offerings. According to the study, more millennial business travellers in APAC use a mobile device when researching (68%) and booking (67%) a trip than in any other region worldwide. Use is second highest in North America (64% and 55%, respectively) and lowest in Europe (54% and 45%, respectively). One third (36%) of millennial business travellers in APAC even now claim they use mobile devices to both book and pay for ‘every trip’.
