Business travel trends 2024

A full recovery in business travel spend is anticipated this year, with the market returning to levels last seen in 2019, according to a new report by Amadeus

Jan 24, 2024

Much has changed over the past five years, business travelers today are increasingly discerning when they travel, as they seek to derive the maximum value from each trip. New technologies, such as Generative Artificial Intelligence (Generative AI), can deliver an enhanced experience for those choosing to embark on a trip. These changes and more are explored in the new Business Travel Trends 2024 report, produced by Globetrender and Cytric Easy by Amadeus.

Key takeaways

  • For corporate travelers, the emergence of Generative Artificial Intelligence (Gen-AI) has catalyzed the arrival of ‘AI PAs.’ These intelligent, 24/7, solutions can patiently help with everything from advising on itinerary options, to using natural language that guides the traveler on their company’s travel policy;
  • Strategic getaways are set to soar in 2024. Scheduling team building days has often been used to bring people together, but a shift towards longer trips away, often in nature, is giving rise to the burgeoning trend;
  • A new corporate mindset and automated systems are enabling Blended Itineraries for business travelers, which go beyond simple ‘bleisure’ trips that see a weekend tagged on to a few days of meetings.
