Acceptance Of Airline Ancillary Fees Is The New Reality In New Survey From AirPlus

ALEXANDRIA, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AirPlus International, a leading global provider of corporate travel payment and analysis solutions, releases August’s The Wire…from AirPlus titled: Ancillary Aggravation Eases. According to the survey’s results, less than half (44 percent) of corporate travel managers are not tracking airline ancillary fees but many are finding ways to review them. Within expense reporting, 38 percent rely on travelers to include fees manually in expense reports, while only 7 percent include fee menus and 15 percent have automated capabilities built in to their expense reporting tools. Other tracking options include five percent who track through their travel management company (TMC) and 11 percent who rely on corporate card data. For more details, including a complimentary PDF of the full survey results, please visit the AirPlus Community.

“We’ve been on record from the start that unbundled pricing for air, hotel and car is the new reality for travel professionals. And we know from our customers that being able to track and manage these expenses is a challenge”

“We’ve been on record from the start that unbundled pricing for air, hotel and car is the new reality for travel professionals.
