The predominantly leisure-focused OTA recorded US$47 million in corporate travel revenue for the third quarter of 2019, which is an increase of 26 percent compared with the same period in 2018, and 9 percent up from the second quarter this year.

The OTA rebranded to Trip.com Group Limited from Ctrip at the end of last month, and said the business travel boost was driven by “expansion in its corporate customer base and an optimized product mix trend”.
