Thanks for reading,

The goals of the study were to understand the barriers to restarting business travel, assess the comfort level with business travel in the wake of the pandemic, and predict when the return to in-person events will occur.

Business Travel Faces Long Road To Recovery From Pandemic
 

Last month, Atlanta Journal-Constitution journalist Kelly Yamanouchi penned an intriguing article. She points out, "American leisure air travel is bouncing back quickly after plunging last year. But it could take months or years for business travel to return to normal — if ever — even as more companies prepare to bring workers back to offices."
