Business Travel Notes

TWA says it will add three partners to its frequent-flier program on Oct. 1: Avis Rent A Car, Inter-Continental Hotels and long-distance phone company Sprint. The airline will also offer triple bonus miles on transatlantic flights until Dec. 15.

United Airlines is scheduled to add more services for international first-class travelers beginning Oct. 1. Included are new facilities for quicker check-in and a greater choice of meal options.

The slump in business travel has forced SAS Hotels to eliminate “Royal Club” executive floors in about half its 33 hotels. Royal Club accommodations have been replaced by “Business Class” rooms, which have less elaborate amenities and cost about 15% less.
