Travel management company Carlson Wagonlit Travel has expanded its mobile air booking offering in 20 key markets around the globe, where travellers now have the option of booking their flights on the myCWT app.

The app’s booking capability has a set of innovative features, including a ‚Äúbest time to book‚ÄĚ indicator, which alerts travelers when prices are expected to increase, and recommends an optimal time to book.
