Between its centuries of history and the financial and business headquarters peppering the city today, Boston is one of the most popular destinations in the world for business travel. Many of Boston’s business travelers arrive with a goal of bleisure: enjoying a mix of business and leisure activities during their trip. If you travel to Boston for business often but also want to enjoy your time personally, we can help. Below, we’ve put together the ultimate business travel guide to Boston.
More travelers than ever are turning to private travel to advance their business. On top of being convenient and flexible, “Business aircraft have a safety record that is comparable to that of the major airlines,” according to the NBAA Business Aviation Fact Book. And yet, “Business aviation reaches 10 times the number of U.S. airports than the airlines do.” In other words, private business travel is both productive and safe.
