Travel Industry News

(Last update: 10/6/15)

  • A recent study by Experian shows that 68% of U.S. travelers end up spending more than expected during their travels.  Another finding in the study shows that credit cards are used more often than debit cards across all types of vacation purchases.
  • Hotel rates for 2016 are expected to increase 6.5% to 7.5% year-over-year, which would mark the largest increase in nearly a decade.
  • John F. Kennedy International Airport's iconic TWA Flight Center, which has been vacant for 14 years, will become a 505 room hotel.  The property will also boast 40,000 square feet of meeting space, six to eight dining establishments, and a 10,000 square foot observation deck.  The opening date is set for sometime in 2018.
  • Delta Air Lines and American Airlines have discontinued their interline ticketing and baggage agreements. With that, any tickets booked after 9/15/15 may no longer contain flight segments operated by Delta and American on the same ticket, and baggage for those trips will not be transferred between Delta and American aircraft. Tickets issued before 9/15/15 will still be honored, with no impact to the traveler if they take the flights as ticketed, with interline checked baggage handling also not being affected on existing tickets.

NYU has preferred hotel rates with Marriott.  Visit the Hotels tab for more information.

NYU's preferred premier car service is Carey International, and the preferred mid-economy car service is Embarque.  Visit the 'Car Service' section of the Transportation tab for more information.
