Q3 trend report


2022 was a year of rapid growth for business travel. And the pressure remains. Why? Because while travel supply and demand is predicted to moderate, the complete reopening of China’s borders is causing spikes in demand and the price of fuel. Inflation is decreasing but operating costs remain high.

On top of all of that, the traveller remains high priority for anyone involved in travel. The new quarterly trends report from FCM Consulting explores how traveller choices and business travel booking trends can be influenced by time, carbon emission footprint and price.
