Initiatives For Restarting International Business Travel

Despite the recently announced lockdowns in Western Europe, the prospects for better travel conditions are favourable for the next year. The international business travel could take off again if journeys of up to three days free from quarantines can be agreed.

A joint recommendation for the short stay exemption was initiated by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (EASA/ECDC). Both organizations have joined forces to call for an exemption on quarantine for people travelling for less than 72 hours. This could be a positive signal for the return of international business travel and provide a significant economic boost, according to the World Travel & Tourism Council.
