NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) April 22, 2013
AirPlus International released its 8th annual International Travel Management Study this week. Researchers interviewed more than 2,100 travel buyers in 24 countries across multiple travel volumes, resulting in the broadest, most inclusive study to date. While originally only covering nine Western European countries and the United States in 2005, the 2013 edition includes four new countries: Canada, India, Russia and Turkey.
“One of AirPlus’ key initiatives is to educate the business travel market and our International Travel Management Study is a cornerstone of that education,” said Ron DiLeo, AirPlus’ North America President and CEO. “By speaking with travel buyers across multiple industries in mature and emerging markets and at different spend levels, we are able to not only get a full picture of marketplace expectations and practices, but are also drill down to a regional and local level.”
This year’s study shows several key takeaways for today’s business travel industry, including:
Travel Volumes and Costs
Strategies for Reducing Costs
New Challenges and Opportunities
