Expatriate Insurance News: Business flyers' priority 'is punctuality'

International health insurance policyholders who travel for business are more concerned about their flight being on time than how much it costs to fly, according to Advantage Travel.

Norman Gate, director of business travel at the firm, pointed out that business travellers often have different priorities than holidaymakers or other types of airline customer.

"The cost doesn't come into it to such an extent, it is more about schedule and punctuality," he explained.

Meanwhile, budget airline easyJet has announced its expansion plans will focus on offering business and leisure travellers best value fares to convenient airports.

Carolyn McCall, chief executive of the business, said: "easyJet is strongly positioned to take advantage of the continuing profitable growth opportunities in European short-haul."

Mr Gate noted that easyJet's GDS booking system was designed to aid business travellers because it provides "a much more easy form of management information to the corporate client", which is simpler than booking online.
