Hotelbeds Group, the business-to-business provider of services to the travel industry globally, has announced an outstanding 87% growth in the TTV of sales in its airline travel ancillary business over the last three years, the company said in a statement.
This provides airline partners with ancillary revenues from the sale of accommodation, transfers, in-destination activities, and car hire services available via the Hotelbeds Group platform.
This strong growth is the result of an ambitious and long-term strategic plan to position Hotelbeds Group as the leading B2B specialist within the airline sector worldwide by building on three core principles.
These are having a superior global product range of not just accommodation, but also transfers, in-destination activities and care hire, offering unrivalled technology solutions that are easy to integrate and maximize the upselling opportunity of ancillaries and proving a reliable and consistent customer experience, delivered by experienced professionals with a proven track-record, the statement said.
“We´ve almost doubled the volume of sales coming from airlines over the last three years by focusing on three core areas: contracting the best and widest variety of products, offering best in class technology, and leveraging our unrivalled industry experience and knowledge” said Jon French, Head of New Business Development at Hotelbeds Group.
The company is working on its airline portfolos this week by attending and being a sponsor at the Aviation Festival.
“Airlines are a key customer group for Hotelbeds Group. Already we work with around 50 airlines globally such as American Airlines, Qatar Airways, British Airways, Ryanair, Norwegian and Finnair, amongst others. We work with them to provide both products– not just accommodation, but also transfers & activities, car hire and destination services – and connectivity via a technology solution. Additionally, we offer more complex all-in-one solutions such as our set-up for easyJet Holidays, where we provide a complete holiday package solution,” French added.
