Less Corporate Travel

Monday, June 8, 2009

In the local region, the company TACA registered a 27% decrease in the sector of business travel.

The journalists Guadalupe Hernández and Daniel Choto write for Elsalvador.com: "As an answer to the need of corporations to save, TACA has implemented a change in the structure of prices.

Mexicana de Aviación has also experienced the same problem."
