Covid-19 has had an extraordinary impact on business travel, and now many agencies are rethinking aspects of their business, accommodating the changing needs of corporate travelers. To support its 12,000+ corporate customers travel in and out of China, CTrip Corporate Travel has renewed a multi-year strategic partnership with Amadeus to support the technology innovation needed for expanding its operations across the Asia Pacific.
Ctrip Corporate Travel’s customers can now shop and book hospitality content via the Amadeus Travel Platform. They will benefit from working on the same platform that over one million properties use - from hotel chains to aggregators and other leading accommodation providers -, giving them unrivaled access to real-time rates and the content they need to serve their customers. Accommodation types range from five-star hotels to B&Bs to managed apartments. A variety of different business models and payment options are available.
Steve Zhang, CEO of Ctrip Corporate Travel, said: “We are excited to see the strong recovery of corporate travel in China. Despite the extensive use of conferencing options, business travel has recovered stronger, in line with the domestic economic growth in this market. With business travelers increasingly turning to corporate travel management services, we are delighted to renew our strategic long-term partnership with Amadeus. The Amadeus Travel Platform will be a cornerstone in the expansion of our travel management business this year and beyond.”
