How long will it take for business travel to get back to normal

If you’re a former airline passenger and haven’t taken a business trip in years, keep staying there. Business travel decreased in 2020 and 2021, and it no longer exists.

Hotel travel revenue in the United States for 2022 is expected to be 23% below pre-pandemic levels, according to an April report from the American Hotel and Residence Association, or AHLA, conducted with hotel analytics group Kalibri Labs.

And it’s not just the hotel’s declining revenue. Research by the American Travel Association, a non-profit organization representing the travel industry, estimates that total business travel spending will decline 24% in 2022 compared to 2019 levels.

Some cities have been hit harder than others. AHLA has released forecasts for business travel revenue for 2022, and four major US cities — San Francisco, New York, Washington DC, and San Jose, California — are expected to see more than 50% decline in revenue compared to 2019. San Francisco is particularly hard hit, with a drop in revenue. By about 70%.
