Frankfurt –October 15, 2014 –Trust International and its hotelier clients continue to play a substantial role in the growth of the Asian travel market. Aerowisata Hotels & Resorts is the most recent hotel group entering the international scene to turn to Trust International's centralized reservation service (CRS) yourVoyager to place its properties before a larger global audience via a broader array of reservations channels. Aerowisata Hotels & Resorts, a division of PT Aerowisata, is a hospitality company and subsidiary of PT Garuda Indonesia. Aerowisata Hotels & Resorts Services are located strategically throughout Indonesia and currently include seven hotels and villas.
Aerowisata Hotels and Resorts is aggressively looking to build its business. In addition to running on all four global distribution systems (GDS), it has deployed Trust's new easy-to-navigate Trust|GuestBooker internet Booking Engine (IBE) on it website to provide potential guests with direct, real-time access to its properties' descriptive content, pictures, rates and availability. They have scheduled additional Trust International services for implementation, including connection to online travel agencies via Trust's channel manager and a two-way property management system (PMS) interface.
"The implementation process has been smooth and very well executed, reconfirming the excellent impression we had when we negotiated with Trust," noted Agustino Fernando, Aerowisata Hotels & Resorts General manager of E-Commerce & Digital Marketing. "The selection of the correct partner is crucial for our future success. We need the right partner to support our distribution strategies today, as well as for our future expansion and new properties. Trust's broad distribution reach, flexible technology that is customized to our needs, robust backend systems, as well as their quality of services, convinced us that they were the ideal distribution strategy partner to help us successfully build a global presence."
"We have seen steady growth among our customers in Asia which has enabled us to further build our client portfolio of well-positioned regional hotel groups, such as Aerowisata, who are expanding into the global marketplace and require best-of-breed technology," stated Richard Wiegmann, Managing Director of Trust International. "We are thrilled to be working with Aerowisata Hotels & Resorts to very strategically plan and implement the distribution foundation to grow the reservations and revenue for their seven properties today, as well as have all the correct elements in place that will scale to seamlessly transition as they add properties and the many new distribution channels that we make available to them."
