Airbnb Inc is rolling out new features, including verified Internet speeds at hosts’ homes and options to search for listings up to a year in advance, as the vacation-rental company bets that remote work and flexible travel is here to stay.

The more than 50 new features, announced a day after US borders reopened to foreign tourists, are part of chief executive officer Brian Chesky’s vision of a new golden age of travel that was born in the Covid-era, where work and leisure blend together as companies move away from an office-centric lifestyle.
