Mar 1, 2008
Air Travel is undoubtedly the fastest as well as most efficient transportation system. Depending upon the nature of the journey, the demand for air travel has been categorized into four segments such as leisurely travelers, people journeying for personal purposes, and travels for education purposes.

Also, an important segment of air travel is business air travel. A business air travel is a journey made by a person in connection with his employment, and in the most cases, it is paid by the employers or company and not the individual. Every business demands a lot of travel, and in deed business air travel has now become one of the most important segments of air travel. Discussed further in detail in this article is regarding the business air travel.

Among the different types of business travelers are independent, corporate, and incentive travelers. Independent or individual business travelers are usually entrepreneurs who primarily travel for the purpose of carrying out their own businesses. Also, fall under this category are individual business professionals such as accountants, attorneys, contractors, consultants, and doctors.

One of the specialties of this category of business travelers is that they are the sole decision makers on such matters related to traveling such as when, where, and how to travel. In the case of corporate travelers, they mostly travel on behalf of the company or corporation for which they are working. In contrast to individual business travelers, all of the expenses with regard to traveling, accommodation, and food would be borne by the company. Some of the large as well as leading corporations even have a section exclusively to cater to the requirements of traveling employees. Another important category of business travelers is conference market, also referred to as the meetings market.
