Business travel has become indispensable to the global economy, not only due to its necessity in the maintaining of corporate networks, but also because of the associated economies that cater to the daily requirements of the business traveller. Underlying these developments are concerns over the environmental impact of increasing air travel, which are likely to generate new challenges for the future of business travel. From a team of international experts comes this analysis of the role, nature and effects of modern business travel. Issues addressed include the relationships between airlines and business travellers, the role of mobility in business, and the opportunities and challenges created by mobile workforces. The study combines theoretical advances with comprehensive analysis, and will provoke debate across the social sciences on the nature, organization and space of work in the twenty-first century.

Review:

'...provides a welcome contribution to the literature on international business travel by presenting a fascinating collection of chapters which give good insights into the diverse patterns, meaning and experience of international business travel.' Donald Hislop, Loughborough University Business School, UK 'First thoroughly comprehensive, theoretically-based and empirically-informed, analysis by researchers from a range of disciplines of a mode of production, business travel, that is both a symptom of, and a necessity for, the competitive success of the growing number of firms participating in international markets in an increasingly globalized economy.' Peter Daniels, University of Birmingham, UK 'By examining travellers' motives and economic issues linked to the global economy, as well as the business models of airline networks and aircrafts, this book paints a comprehensive and stimulating picture of international business travel. In a field that has, as yet, been little explored by research on mobility, this work will stand the test of time.' Vincent Kaufmann, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, Switzerland 'In short, this book does a fantastic job of...documenting the geographies of global business travel. Moreover, it also helps us understand why it is crucial to know why these geographies are central to the operation of global capitalism and its role and impact on the firms and individuals engaged in this behavior.' Journal of Economic Geography 'International Business Travel in the Global Economy provides an up-to-date account of the current state of business-related air travel, as well as the industry's important historical trends and the broader sociological context under which such changes took place...Scholars of transport studies, especially air transport specialists, geographers, sociologists, and to a lesser extent, marketers of products and services to international business travellers, would find this volume both informative and insightful.' Journal of Transport Geography 'This book is valuable for those who want an introduction into a broad range of aspects of business travel, but it also acts as a starting point for students of a particular area of this type of aviation, with ample references for further study.' Aerlines Magazine
