THE UK is lagging behind other European countries when it comes to the number of women business travellers who fly long haul.
A survey by Travel Research Centre’s Business Travel Monitor shows that only 6% of the UK’s long-haul business travellers are women, the same percentage as 10 years ago.
France and Germany recorded similar figures 10 years ago, but the percentage in these countries now stands at 22% and 26% respectively.
TRC UKdirector Michael Brooks said:”The UKseems to have made no progress in this particular area and is being left behind .”
