Air NZ links with Expedia on rooms initiative

March 24, 2017 Headline News No Comments Email Email

Air New Zealand has linked with Expedia to deliver what the New Zealand carrier calls a “digital travel retail experience” giving streamlined access to Expedia’s full hotel selection at discounted rates when customers book their flight and room together on the airline’s website.

From now on, customers booking a flight on the website can access extra hotel discounts, with all properties backed by Expedia’s Price Match. Air NZ Airpoints members will also earn Airpoints Dollars on their stay, with a launch offer of triple Airpoints Dollars until 21 April 2017.

Air New Zealand chief digital officer Avi Golan said the partnership would “bring together two digitally-forward companies with bold ambitions to make dreaming, planning and booking travel effortless, from ground to air.

“From our highly popular mobile app to our artificial intelligence chat bot Oscar, we’re continually looking at how new technology can radically simplify travel planning, giving our customers enhanced choice, convenience and a more personalised experience.

“With Expedia on board, customers can confidently choose from hundreds of thousands of options, knowing they’re getting the best value on hotels in New Zealand and offshore.”

Expedia New Zealand managing director Michael Pearson said Air New Zealand’s customers would benefit from Expedia’s sophisticated search platform that makes it easy to find the best option for every trip.

“The partnership opens up a world of choice, value and rewards for customers, simplifying the booking process for flights and accommodation, whether for business or leisure.”
