The Value of Time in Air Travel

Air travel is a time-consuming activity and stop-overs and increased journey time are generally things that passengers would rather avoid. But just how much value do travellers attach to saving journey time? How much are they willing to pay to save those previous hours?

Using our ingenious data tool, Travel Insight, we are able to show exactly how much value travellers attach to time. We've picked 10 popular long-haul routes around the world that currently have no direct connection in order to show the value of an hour of travel for each route. The results, shown in the following infographic, also displays just how much the value of an hour saved can vary per route.

To delve further into the data, take a look at our Value of Time landing page, where we have hosted a dashboard that enables you to interact with our Travel Insight data.
