US Travelers Confident to Return to Skies and Business Travel Poised for Fall Comeback, Reveals Cirium Survey
Americans are confident to fly again, with 78% of travelers intending to travel for leisure, according to results from a new survey from Cirium, the aviation analytics company. Of those who travel for business, 67% indicate their employer will permit travel in the next three to six months. Some 40% of respondents who intend to return to the skies plan to fly this summer. However, only a small minority had plans to travel by air for major holidays such as the July 4th weekend (16%) and Labor Day weekend (17%).

The Cirium Traveler Intelligence Report 2021 - United States Survey (Graphic: Business Wire)
The firm interviewed 2,140 adults across the US between May 11 and 17, 2021, in a nationally representative sample. The margin of error in the reported data did not exceed +/- 3% at the 95% confidence level.
A strong majority of US travelers (90%) intend to fly at some point in the future, and 64% are planning to fly within the next 12 months.
More than three-quarters (78%) of those with plans to travel this year are only planning for domestic trips. Only 22% expect to fly internationally in 2021. The survey also reveals that over one-quarter of respondents reported having taken a flight since the pandemic. Some 60% of respondents indicated that the pandemic will have no impact on their long-term travel plans.
“Cirium’s traveler survey identifies the confidence of the US in flying again, with a majority taking to the skies domestically already—mainly to visit family. The results indicate that the challenges facing US airlines is not lack of travel demand, but on the health and safety measures in place at the airport and in flight,” said Jeremy Bowen, CEO at Cirium.
“US business travel may see some green shoots of recovery in the fall of 2021, as corporations plan to release restrictions on travel.”
While US airlines are increasing domestic flights for summer 2021 and Americans show interest in flying again, travelers expressed health and safety concerns, which impact their travel decisions.
Respondents strongly support the adoption of health passports for future air travel, with 59% supporting a requirement to carry mandatory passes to fly—though 20% disagree with the idea. When asked what airline measures would increase their motivation to fly, the majority of participants identified mandatory mask-wearing (61%) and improved cleaning processes (61%) as the top two measures.
The majority of respondents (78%) identify leisure travel as the main purpose for travel, however the survey reveals optimism for business travel returning in the fall.
Of the respondents who said they travel for business, just 34% were currently permitted to travel by their employer, increasing to 67% within the next three to six months.
The rise in working from home seems to have had little effect on the likelihood to travel for business reasons, as half of US respondents claim there is no change and nearly a quarter (24%) said they are more likely to travel for business.
More than half the respondents reported that they could work remotely and 40% of these respondents claim that the pandemic has increased the chances that they would combine a vacation with work.

Janssen Announces Results from Phase 3 MAIA Study Showing Significant Overall Survival Benefits for Treatment with DARZALEX®▼ (daratumumab) in Patients with Newly Diagnosed Multiple Myeloma Who are Transplant Ineligible12.6.2021 10:01:00 EEST | Press release
The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson announced overall survival (OS) results from the Phase 3 MAIA (NCT02252172) study showing the addition of DARZALEX® ▼(daratumumab) to lenalidomide and dexamethasone (D-Rd) resulted in a statistically significant survival benefit over lenalidomide and dexamethasone (Rd) alone in patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (NDMM) who were ineligible for autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) and were treated to progression.1 These data were featured in the European Hematology Association (EHA) 2021 Virtual Press Briefing and will be presented as a late-breaking abstract during the EHA Virtual Congress (Abstract #LB1901). The prespecified interim analysis for OS found that after a median follow-up of nearly five years (56.2 months), a 32 percent reduction in the risk of death was observed in the D-Rd treatment arm vs. Rd arm.1 Median OS was not reached in either arm [hazard ratio (HR): 0.68, 95 percent confidence interval (CI),
New Phase 3 Study Results Show IMBRUVICA® (ibrutinib)-Based Combination Regimen as an All-Oral Fixed-Duration Treatment Demonstrated Superior Progression-Free Survival in Adult Patients with Previously Untreated Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia12.6.2021 10:00:00 EEST | Press release
The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson today announced primary results from the pivotal Phase 3 GLOW study (NCT03462719) evaluating fixed-duration IMBRUVICA® (ibrutinib) plus venetoclax (I+V) compared to chlorambucil plus obinutuzumab (Clb+O) for first-line treatment of elderly or unfit patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL). The study demonstrated superior progression-free survival (PFS) of a once-daily, all-oral, fixed-duration regimen of I+V versus Clb+O as first-line treatment of CLL; the study also showed improved duration of remission and significantly improved depth of remission.1 With I+V, undetectable minimal residual disease (uMRD) in peripheral blood (PB) was sustained by 85 percent of patients one year after end of treatment.1 The safety and tolerability profile of I+V was consistent with CLL treatment in an older population with comorbidities.1 These data were featured in the European Hematology Association (EHA) 2021 Virtual Press Briefing an

Secure Communities Forum: Behavioural Insights Can Assist Governments in the Post-Pandemic World11.6.2021 11:15:00 EEST | Press release
The Secure Communities Forum, a global collaboration of security professionals, has convened a leading panel of experts to discuss how behavioural science can impact positive social cohesion, build on the concept of positive citizenship, and encourage positive individual behaviours. The virtual event was attended by 134 people from 18 countries. The Secure Communities Forum convened the webinar in response to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Governments and law enforcement agencies have used behavioural science to encourage adherence to public health measures like social distancing and mask-wearing. Lindsay Juarez, Director at Irrational Labs, USA, opened the session, offering the view that we assume humans are rational, which is not the case. She said: “Behavioural science is about setting people up for success and breaking through the noise. Information isn't enough to change behaviour, the decision-making context matters. “People don’t always act in their own long-term best interests,
