The Covid-19 pandemic has ushered in the era of video meetings. But can Zoom really replace in-person meetings that require business executives to travel? US airlines have suffered a steep decline in this lucrative category of travel. They do expect a rebound—just not right away. “I suddenly stopped travelling in March because of the concerns around Covid,” JJ Kinahan, market strategist at TD AmeriTrade, told AFP. The halt was a bit of a shock for someone who typically spent about 75 nights a year away from home for work. Now his company only authorizes travel on a case-by-case basis. While Kinahan says he does not miss the flights, he does miss the personal connection with hotel doormen and receptionists he would encounter regularly in his travels.
