CNN Business Traveller returns

Thursday 15 March sees the return of CNN Business Traveller hosted by the indefatigable Richard Quest.

Each month, Quest will present the show from hotels, airports and cities around the world, bringing his detailed knowledge of surviving out of a suitcase on the world’s corporate highways and byways.  Joining him will be resident business travel news correspondent Ayesha Durgahee.

“Since CNN Business Traveller has been away, tough economic times have continued, but so has business travel.  I’m delighted that once again, CNN is able to inspire viewers to profit from their travels and broaden their horizons, both in terms of personal enjoyment and business opportunities.  This is a fascinating industry – we look forward to the year ahead on the road,” said Matt Percival, Executive Editor, CNN International.

In the first programme, airing 07:30 GMT Thursday 15 March, Quest is in Singapore to celebrate business travel in a region where growth is rife and trends are set.  With the economic winds blowing eastwards, Changi Airport is a thriving hub battling for supremacy among Asia’s high-tech airports; it was also the location of the first ever episode of ‘CNN Business Traveller’ so it is a fitting place for the programme to return to in 2012. www.cnn.com/businesstraveller  (goes live on Wednesday, 7 March).
