Business travel data reveals top countries travelling to Australia

A new report from the American Express Global Business Travel has found that six of the top 10 cities where residents travel to Australia for business (outside Asia Pacific region) are US-based.

Australia’s strong business ties to the US, particularly San Francisco and New York, continue to remain a key travel driver. The weaker Australian dollar has also increased tourism to Australia further enabling business travel, and the travel destination data provides a robust snapshot of business travel flows into the country.

Cities within APAC make up the majority of the top 10 visiting Australia for business, with proximity playing a factor. London is the highest ranked destination outside of APAC, followed by New York.

The Singapore, Auckland and Hong Kong ranking’s as the top three origins for business travel mirror perfectly with Australia’s outbound business travel destinations. New Zealand and Australia maintain traditional business links, with particular demand coming from the technology, services and consulting sectors. These sectors also feature heavily in travel between Australia and Hong Kong, in addition to the financial services sector.

Top 10 international cities visiting Australia for business are:

  1. Singapore, Singapore
  2. Auckland, New Zealand
  3. Hong Kong, China
  4. London, United Kingdom
  5. Tokyo, Japan
  6. New York, United States
  7. Bangkok, Thailand
  8. Shanghai, China
  9. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
  10. Wellington, New Zealand
