Is reliable corporate travel possible in 2023?

The bounce back of corporate travel in 2023

Posted by Joshua Archibald on May 25, 2023

After the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 the travel industry was dramatically affected. With all forms of travel on hold and remote working becoming the norm, corporate travel had minimal demand. Now, in 2023, we’re seeing the beginning of the recovery process, but several problems still lie in the way. Reports suggest that corporate travel is not expected to fully recover until 2026 (Travel Trade Journal, 2022). This leads us to ask the question, is reliable corporate travel possible in 2023?

To answer this question, we first need to understand the hurdles in the way of reliable corporate travel. In a post-covid world, one of the key aspects of reliable travel is regarding health and safety.

Another is risk management, with continued delays and disruptions for trainlines and buses it has made travel of any kind highly unpredictable (Sky News, 2023). A journey which takes just 30 minutes on Monday could be inflated to a 2-hour journey on the Tuesday, or even worse may not be possible at all.
