China pushed out of second place: More business trips are going to India


Frankfurt Anyone traveling on behalf of their company is traveling to India more and more frequently. This is shown by a current analysis by the Lufthansa subsidiary Airplus, a business travel service provider.

According to the analysis, India ousted China from second place among the most popular long-haul destinations for business travel last year. The USA remains in first place.

Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) has just been to India – accompanied by a business delegation. “We feel an increased demand for India,” said Oliver Wagner, CEO of Airplus, the Handelsblatt. The travel expert also attributes the new ranking to the long and strict corona measures in China, which have only now been relaxed again.

“We will see a sharp increase in trips to China in the coming weeks,” predicts Wagner. In the second half of the year, China could again reach 60 percent of the pre-crisis level for business trips.__Courtesy
