The reopening of US land borders on Nov. 8 will be “a positive milestone for the industry and a critical building block towards the long-term recovery of corporate travel,” according to a statement from FCM  and  Corporate Traveler. Corporate Traveler, a travel management company that targets small to mid-size companies; and FCM, a TMC that serves large multinationals, are corporate brands within the Flight Centre Travel Group network. Noting that Canada began allowing fully vaccinated travelers to enter from the US on Aug. 9, the company said its research shows that both businesses and consumers are ready to return to travel, and having consistency on both sides of the border will have an immediate impact on  demand. In fact, since the announcement earlier this fall, said the statement, the companies have witnessed a notable surge in interest towards US destinations. This rise in interest echoes the streak of growth the company is witnessing in bookings elsewhere, specifically a 35% year-over-year gain for the July-to-September  period. “We expect a similarly positive rebound in international traffic and economic revenues is in North America’s horizons as well,” said the statement.
