AirPlus survey finds increasing corporate acceptance of ancillary fees

AirPlus International published (17-Aug-2011) results of its Aug-2011 survey, finding that 44% of corporate travel managers are not tracking airline ancillary fees, but many are finding ways to review them. Within expense reporting, 38% of travel managers rely on travelers to include fees manually in expense reports, while only 7% include fee menus and 15% have automated capabilities built in to their expense reporting tools. Other tracking options include 5% who track through their travel management company (TMC) and 11% who rely on corporate card data. [more]
