Airlines Tweak Schedules Toward Leisure Routes as One-Day Business Trips Falter

A COVID-triggered trend in corporate travel where longer stays are favoured over one-day business trips has airlines around the world changing schedules and bringing in new flights to manage the shift in travel behaviour, reports Skift.

Corporate travel agency CWT said in global terms, the proportion of one-day domestic trips has fallen by more than 25 per cent compared with 2019 levels as online meetings grow in popularity.

In response, U.S. carriers are adding more midweek flights as travellers take more trips that blend business with leisure, with many capitalizing on greater flexibility to work remotely.
