在新冠大流行期间，商务旅行发生了巨大变化。全球商务旅行协会(Global Business Travel Association)最近的一项调查发现，40%的受访者说，他们的公司已经恢复了非必要性的国内商务旅行，这一比例较之前的调查有所上升。
Cire travel的创始人兼首席执行官埃里克·赫班特(Eric Hrubant)说，另一种休闲商务旅游也正在兴起，公司让员工享受本质上是免费的假期。
Focus on business travel
The segment changed dramatically in the pandemic. But, as road warriors slowly start to return to the road, which trends are here to stay?
A recent poll from the Global Business Travel Association found that 40% of respondents said their company has already resumed nonessential domestic business travel, a positive uptick from its previous surveys.
But with all crises comes change, and whatever business travel landscape emerges post-pandemic could be quite different than the one that came to a crashing halt last year.
From the explosive growth of virtual and hybrid meetings to the acceleration of bleisure travel and shifting maps for airlift, business travel has undergone a rapid evolution. The question on everyone’s minds is whether the shifts impacting both the businesses of suppliers and the experiences of travelers themselves are transitional or transformative.
“Bleisure,” the combination of business and leisure travel, was a buzzword long before the pandemic.
Now, as the U.S. emerges from what seems to be the worst of the health crisis, two trends — a flexible work environment and pent-up travel demand — have created the perfect environment for a bleisure travel boom.
“Bleisure will continue to grow,” said Norm Rose, senior technology and corporate travel analyst at Phocuswright.
The new age of incentives
A different kind of bleisure travel is also emerging, one in which companies send their employees on what are essentially free vacations, said Eric Hrubant, founder and CEO of Cire Travel. The trips don’t include meetings or much structure, outside of a cocktail hour and group dinner, and employees are invited to bring plus-ones.
He calls it “corporate bleisure.”
Rolling back in-flight services
Airlines gutted food and drink service across the board at the start of the pandemic due to health concerns. And while social distancing — middle-seat blocking, for example — is less of a concern now, food and beverage service has been much slower to return.
That, of course, raises questions about whether airlines will use the opportunity to make long-term shifts to cut back services. These reductions come after airlines, for competitive reasons, had for years been ramping up offerings across premium and economy classes.
One of the biggest questions — and concerns -— for the hotel industry has been whether the wide-scale adoption of virtual meetings will permanently reduce demand for the in-person events that are the lifeblood of so many properties around the world.
Even as business travel slowly returns, hotels have simultaneously moved to adapt to hybrid face-to-face/virtual meetings and events. ( from travelweekly)
Canada Border Restrictions To Continue Through June 30
Canada has extended its pandemic-related entry requirements through at least June 30, according to an announcement by the country’s Public Health Agency on Twitter May 31.
The announcement came, CBC reports, the day after the Canadian Parliament voted down a Conservative Party motion to end all pandemic-related travel restrictions. ( from travelpulse)
The Azores: Nine island gems with a volcanic past and a magical present
Traveling to a paradise on Earth doesn't necessarily require a long, arduous or perilous journey.
In fact, an unspoiled landscape reminiscent of a fairytale is barely five hours from Boston and about four hours from the United Kingdom. It's a land where waterfalls cascade down iridescent green slopes; where roads are rimmed with hydrangea hedges; and where craggy coasts are blanketed with black sand beaches.
A lost-in-time quality prevails, whether it's a hamlet of stone dwellings linked by cobbled paths, or locals who remain true to the old ways of planting crops on fertile plains at the base of sheer cliffs, or riding horse-drawn carts to deliver milk to the cheese factory.
Welcome to the Azores, a necklace of nine enchanting islands that huddle in the middle of the Atlantic but are part of Portugal. The archipelago is an autonomous region located roughly 1,000 miles from the Portuguese mainland. The islands' thermal pools, lush calderas, crater lakes and steaming geysers all bear testament to the violent volcanic forces that birthed them, yet each isle has a distinctive character where nature in its wildest state prevails.
Azores Airlines flies non-stop to Ponta Delgada on São Miguel Island from Boston, and to Lajes on Terceira with a stopover in Ponta Delgada year-round. United (from Newark) and Azores Airlines (from JFK, on select days) both have summer nonstop service to Ponta Delgada. British Airways offers nonstop, summer service on Saturdays. （ from CNN Travel ）
