Why are there only 99 companies on BTN’s Corporate Travel 100 this year? Due to the massive drop in
corporate travel during the pandemic, BTN made the editorial decision to compile the 2021 and 2022
Corporate Travel 100 based on the same list of companies that made the list in 2020 (based on 2019 data).
The objective of our approach was to understand the impact of the pandemic on their programs. Mergers
and acquisitions between some companies on the 2020 CT100, reduced our benchmark universe to 99
companies. As always, the BTN CT100 is based on the prior year’s travel volume. This issue reflects travel
volumes from full-year 2021.
BTN’s executive director of conference content and strategy David Meyer contacted each company on
the 2021 Corporate Travel 100 to conduct a follow-up interview and online survey to find out how each
company was dealing with business travel reduction, how they were adjusting travel programs in the
interim and whether the hiatus would drive fundamental changes. Certain companies decline the BTN
outreach. For companies that chose not to confirm U.S.-booked business air travel volumes, BTN used
industry sources, published reports and other intelligence about specific programs to provide an estimate
of U.S.-booked air volume. Estimates are noted in the listings. The BTN editorial team would like to thank
David Meyer for his efforts this year—and every year—to compile the list and survey this important group
of business travel experts.
