The view on business travel has become much more conservative over the past year. With many companies wondering how the travel landscape will look as the year progresses, some are beginning to consider how their companies can resume travel safely, especially once more business activity picks up and international borders re-open.
Despite the uncertainty, there are a lot of expectations to move the conversation forward and return to the status quo – to get back to important face-to-face dealings, have more meaningful meeting time, and reconnect during live events. Having endured the unprecedented disruption of the pandemic, businesses are prioritizing planning and preparation more than ever, factoring how they can prevent any functional or operational setbacks in the future while keeping their employees safe.
With the need for business travel and in-person industry events already pulsing, some sources suggest that travel for business and meetings will enter a period of recovery starting in the third quarter of 2021. In fact, we are starting to see indicators for this trend as our team continues to provide essential business flight solutions.
