At a cursory glance, the diagnosis for global corporate travel demand looks healthy. Global air traffic posted its strongest year-over-year growth since the recovery from the 2008 U.S. financial crisis, and hotels in many global regions are seeing record occupancies. At the same time, threats to that growth loom, and there are murmurs of a global recession on the horizon. While low oil prices can stimulate demand through lower travel costs, they also are causing heavy travel cutbacks from the energy sector. China’s behemoth economy, meanwhile, is teetering toward recession, which would bring global demand repercussions, as could the United Kingdom’s potential exit from the European Union later this year. The Zika virus, too, has emerged as a pandemic threat.
