Explaining the growth in business travel, Kavikrut, Chief Growth Officer, OYO, said,


“The swing of the pendulum is now clearly visible in business travel, and we are expecting this trend to continue. Demand is picking up across all key business cities, which confirms that the recovery is broad-based."


He added, "To ensure a hassle-free stay experience for business travellers, we have introduced special programmes. Customers with corporate tie-ups can get curated stays options, strong personalised customer support, and integration with their accounting system.”


The company confirmed that business travel started showing signs of recovery in January this year, while it picked up momentum with a new financial year in April.


The MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions) segment also contributed towards the growth as work-related travel became critical for many businesses.
