Domestic Business Travel Rises After Year-Long Slump

Posted on June 8, 2016

U.S. domestic business travel grew in April, according to the U.S. Travel Association's Travel Trends Index. After tracking below 50 on the index, indicating year-over-year decline, for 13 months, domestic business travel measured 51.7 in April, signaling year-over-year growth.

It's a bright spot in an otherwise gray year but expected to be short lived, according to the USTA. The six-month Leading Travel Index, which forecasts the likely average pace and direction of travel volume over the same period the prior year, shows business travel languishing at  49.6.
