CORPORATE travel specialist Hogg Robinson today hailed "some early signs of recovery" in business and leisure flying despite uncertain economic prospects.
The firm - whose major UK customers include HSBC, Next and KPMG - has seen "more normal" activity levels among clients, although US and European regions are lagging behind emerging market business.
The Basingstoke-based company said trading since October had been broadly in line with hopes as the firm weathered the impact of the snow by laying on alternative travel arrangements for clients.
The firm said the weather would have no major impact on full-year results, although the last two months of its financial year were difficult to forecast.
Chief executive David Radcliffe said: "Clients continue to travel and we are seeing early signs of stabilisation, albeit market conditions remain challenging with limited forward visibility."
