Forty percent of respondents to the latest Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) survey of members and stakeholders report their bookings from corporate customers have increased from the previous poll in February. That number reflected an increase of 21 percentage points from the last poll, with 48% characterizing bookings as the same, only one in 10 reporting decreased bookings and 6% unsure. In other findings, two-thirds (66%) of respondents believe implementing digital health verification (vaccination passports) is a good policy, with the majority of them believing it will help employees safely resume business travel. A majority of respondents (84%) say they would be “very comfortable” or “comfortable” traveling for business after receiving the COVID-19 vaccination. GBTA members and stakeholders largely expect nonessential domestic business travel to resume in the second half of 2021. International nonessential business travel is expected to take longer and is not expected to largely resume until 2022. Suzanne Neufang, CEO, said that as momentum for digital health verification grows, so does optimism for a safe return to business travel. She said that GBTA is continuing its advocacy efforts in Washington, Brussels and London to lobby for a consistent approach to reopen borders and safely allow business travel to resume. “It is encouraging to see GBTA members feeling comfortable to travel after receiving the vaccine,” she said, “and that the global vaccine rollout continues to accelerate.”
