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.
