7,952. That’s the number of flight cancellations in the U.S. over just a five-day period at the end of June.
In other words, the predictions about this being one of the busiest, most difficult travel seasons have come true — and are in full swing.
And despite the season, it’s not just the typical mashup of leisure travelers crowding the skies. Business travel patterns have shifted, with more road warriors taking to the tarmacs in the warm season. Navan saw this shift coming throughout the spring, and airlines like United were reporting the same.
This change has made the travel manager’s job even more challenging, with increased competition for everything from airfare to service support.
It’s not just seasonality that’s changed, but also the travelers, as a growing number of employees other than sales reps are becoming road warriors.
Who are those employees, and what’s caused this shift? You’ll find the answers in Navan’s Travel Manager Summer Survival Guide.
The guide also delves into tips for travel managers. From aligning policy and preparing for an increase in group travel, you’ll get insights into ways to smooth the bumps of this crazy summer travel season.
You’ll also find out how Navan can help streamline your travel program — and keep costs under control — no matter how much travel volume increases or how many shifts occur in seasonality or traveling personnel.
It’s just one more way that Navan has your back.
