The future of business travel, and what it will look like post-pandemic will be discussed today. 

Flight Centre are holding their corporate travel event Illuminate. 

It coincides with the launch of the government's self-isolation pilot for business travellers, with 150 people confirmed for the trial. 

Flight Centre Travel Group's Head of Customer Engagement Andy Jack told Kate Hawkesby the pilot is a welcome first step in right direction. 

“We’re no stranger now to isolating. It’s probably the longer-term solution but it isn’t the absolute solution for regular overseas travellers who travel more for days rather than weeks.”  

Jack says they saw travel bounce back ahead of this lockdown and domestic travel levels overtake pre-Covid levels.
