Business Travel and the ISO 31030

Becky Malcolm

Travel risk and the ISO3010

It’s positive news for Business Travel - at the end of March, business flight bookings exceeded 2019 levels for the first time since the start of the pandemic.

This is a key milestone for the airline industry and if flight bookings continue at their current pace, an estimated 1.5 billion more passengers globally will fly in 2022 compared to last year – this figure is based on Mastercard Economic Institute estimates of Global IATA passenger data.

The return of business travel has been swift, business flyers have trailed leisure passengers for the entire pandemic, and business flight bookings were only about half of pre-pandemic levels earlier this year, according to the report.

The full report is in the Mastercard Economics Institute’s third annual travel report, titled “Travel 2022: Trends & Transitions,” it analysed 37 global markets and was published yesterday. 

If you have a travelling workforce now is the time to redefine Your Travel Risk Management Policies in accordance with ISO 31030. We can help companies manage travel risks and adhere to ISO 31030.


For over 30 years, Anvil has been providing travel risk management guidance and support to governmental and non-governmental organisations around the globe. Now an Everbridge Company, Anvil and Everbridge strive to improve risk visibility and situational awareness with real-time incident alerts, updates, and global security information: helping protect and prepare employees for safer travel.

When it comes to travelling employees, fulfilling duty of care responsibilities has the potential to incorporate the entire organisation. However, decisions about the administration of travel risk policy may be relegated to a select few functional leaders. To ensure effective travel risk management, organisations can distribute ownership of TRM functions across the organisation.

Companies must find new ways to alleviate business travel anxieties while keeping travelling employees safe. By adopting and integrating the standardised TRM guidance provided by the ISO into your organisation, establishing clear expectations and ownership of different TRM functions, and applying a full spectrum of traveller protection through the application of TRM technology, your organisation can reap several benefits like increased employee safety and security as well as improved overall compliance with changing travel regulations.
