corporate travel policy summary
CORPORATE TRAVEL POLICY - SUMMARY
  • The Ascend Corporate Travel Survey shows that a weak recovery is in the air. Both budgets and the number of flights are set to increase over the next 12 months
  • North America is more positive than Europe
  • People are expecting more for less. More people expect to increase the number of flights than expect to see budget increases
  • Passengers have plenty to grumble about, especially increased security queues and declining on-board service levels, but they now feel they have more choice and cheaper fares
