New York, NY, October 9, 2015 – American Express Global Business Travel (“GBT”) today announced that it continues to rank first among corporate travel providers in the recently announced 2015 Corporate Travel 100 (“CT100”), an annual listing compiled by Business Travel News. The listing provides a comprehensive review of companies with the largest volume of air booking in the United States across a variety of industries. Similar to last year’s listing, 37 GBT customers were named to the CT100 list, more than any other travel management company, with two listed in this year’s top ten.
“We are incredibly proud to be recognized once again as the top travel management company in Business Travel News’ Corporate Travel 100 listing and thank our customers for trusting in GBT to support the needs of their corporate programs and provide the best experience possible to their travelers,” said Christine Ourmieres-Widener, Chief Global Sales Officer, American Express Global Business Travel. “With one year under our belts as a joint venture, GBT is stronger than ever with fresh talent, energy and ideas, and an ambitious vision for the future. We believe in the critical role this industry plays and feel strongly that business travel should be the easiest of all travel. We look forward to putting our capital to work to make this a reality for our customers and their travelers.”
Companies were selected for the CT100 list based on 2014 air tickets purchased for domestic or international business travel at all U.S. points of sale. Most listed organizations provided at least some information to Business Travel News for use in their specific listings. Respondent organizations completed an online questionnaire and some provided additional information in interviews. For organizations that did not participate, Business Travel News used industry sources, published reports and other intelligence.
