Academic travel underlines Ian Allan growth

Ian Allan Travel (IAT) has reported a 25 per cent surge in travel bookings – from universities.

The shepperton-based TMC, part of the Ian Allan Group, says academic travel bookings are up by a quarter, predominantly to China, Singapore and Malaysia on behalf of a number of the UK’s most prestigious universities, and includes conferences, meetings and posting between academic professionals from the UK to Asia.

Turnover from academic travel increased from £986k to £1.2 million in the 12 months to February 2014.
