The first signs of optimism from travel managers, including Italian ones. Business travel, in this 2015 that has just started, can give satisfaction. On a global level, the number of companies for 2015 predicted to have a positive impact on business travel has infact increased compared to last year by 4 percentile points, going from 14% to 18%. About a third of business travel managers (35%) predicts for 2015 an increase in the number of trips (31%: 2014), 41% does not consider there will be any significant changes (53%: 2014) and 17% expects a decrease in the number of trips.

The data, however, varies significantly in the various regions of the world. Compared to 2014 the expectations for more trips by business travellers operating in North America (46%), Asia Pacific (44%) and Western Europe (32%) have drastically increased where economic growth is stronger. These are the first signs contained in AirPlus Travel Management Study 2015, the tenth edition of the research that capures the global and regional trend of business travel.

In Italy, a travel manager on four (24%) predicts that the current economic situation will have positive effects on business travel - a growing percentage of 10% compared to 2014 - and 6 percentile points higher compared to the average European (16%). 37% of Italian travel managers does not think there will be any effects on travel (53%: Europe) whereas 34% predicts a negative impact (28%: Europe). Predictions on the number of transfers and the volume of expenditure for 2015 remain, however, aligned to 2014.
