5 Best Business Travel Tips

5 Best Business Travel Tips

Christina Macres | ManagerLink

Whether traveling for business is an everyday occurrence, an occasional hindrance, or a lifelong dream, all business travelers can agree that if your job calls for travel, then being an efficient traveler is a must. We’ve got the five tips that’ll make your time en-route more productive and less stressful.

#1 Know Which Airlines Offer Premium Economy


Why? Because if your career has you traveling often, suffering though coach accommodations (or lack thereof) can grow tiresome. A weary traveler makes for a weary worker. If you’re fatigued and sore from an uncomfortable flight, chances are you’re not going to be at your most productive.

Don’t think management is going to spring for business class (let alone first class)? The good news is nowadays there’s another option — premium economy.

Somewhere in between coach and business class lies a leg rest and a seat that reclines a little further, not to mention a fast-track boarding pass and better food and entertainment options. Of course amenities vary based on airlines, so make sure you do your research before purchasing your ticket.

Airlines Now Offering Premium Economy Include:

• Air Canada
• Air France
• Air New Zealand
• Air Transat
• British Airways
• Frontier Airlines
• Japan Airlines
• Mexicana Airlines
• Spirit Airlines
• United Airlines
• Virgin America
• Virgin Atlantic
• Virgin Blue
