We are pleased to confirm that we have reached a partnership with Luxair Luxembourg Airlines, the flag carrier of Luxembourg that carries almost 2 million passengers every year.
We are delivering Luxair with a proprietary dynamic packaging platform for its Luxair City Break product, as well as providing a curated accommodation inventory of 7,000+ hotels across Luxair’s twenty European destinations, and acting as merchant to fulfill services to the final Luxair customer.
To complement the Luxair City Break Dynamic Packaging offering, this agreement will also include a standalone hotel-only white-label platform operating as a tab on the home page of Luxair – plus cross-selling via other touchpoints such as email confirmation, the ‘manage my booking’ page, and more.
Speaking about the new partnership, Jon French, Head of Strategic Partnerships EMEA and APAC at Hotelbeds, commented: “This partnership allows us to further develop our capabilities specifically for airlines, while reinforcing our commitment to our hotel partners of delivering a distribution route to high-value travellers that are non-domestic and typically cancel less, book further in advance, spend more in destination and come back more often.”
Meanwhile Laurent Jossart, Executive Vice-President Airline, from Luxair added: “Hotelbeds seemed the natural partner to take this forward given both its impressive range of directly contracted hotels as well as its tours and activities inventory; additionally the important ability to deliver a cloud-based technological solution with minimal fuss played a big part.”
This deal added to the over 40 airlines that currently partner with Hotelbeds, reinforcing our position as an ideal strategic partner for airlines to fulfil their non-air ancillary revenues strategy and for hoteliers to optimize their distribution, accessing hard-to-reach and non-domestic travellers that typically book further in advance, cancel less, spend more in destination, stay longer and return more often.
