Equilibrium Travel Management (EQ) has been urging businesses to ensure they cover all angles when planning corporate travel to avoid running up costly travel costs.
The corporate travel specialists has been highlighting how companies can save thousands by getting executives to board first and business class flights with seats that do not turn into fully flat beds.
EQ highlighted one specific case in which they were able to save the business £500,000 by switching staff onto airlines whose seats convert into angled beds instead of 180 degree flat beds.
Franc Jeffrey, EQ’s managing director said “It’s common for airlines to offer 180 degree flat beds, but these will come in at premium fare rates. But by missing out on a true flat bed by just an angle of 20 degrees, savings can be as high as 57%.
“Travel remains the third largest expense for most organisations, so it is vital that companies get the best value for money in this area. To do that we look to work closely with companies to create a working partnership that understands the company’s travel needs and can evolve and react to market demands and changes .”
