Of the 2018 U.S.-booked air volume, 58 percent was for crossborder travel. Amgen projects that figure to inch up to $54 million this year. Seventy-eight percent of 2018 U.S.-booked tickets went through approved online tools—up from 69 percent in 2017—and just 3 percent of those required agent assistance. The company has a single global travel policy. In 2018, the company reviewed and tweaked policy, including guidance on meals, as well as making sedans eligible for senior staff. It also implemented hotel rate caps in certain cities, instituted pretrip approval for certain markets, expanded airfare and hotel price tracking to a total of 30 countries and implemented 24/7 dedicated travel agents. In 2019, it will continue to focus on cost management and to globalize onto standard platforms, such as online booking tool, expense management and meetings registration.
