Travel Agencies & Travel Management Companies jump on Jetstar’s enhanced business package bandwagon

October 4, 2017 Aviation No Comments Email Email

The Jetstar flexible plan for business travellers has become even more accessible for multinationals and corporate travellers as the service now becomes available to travel agencies and travel management companies.

Since the Jetstar business bundle, known as Flexibiz, was introduced in Asia Pacific a year ago, more than 30,000 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), budding entrepreneurs and small business owners have enjoyed corporate travel with the low fares, convenience and reliability, offered through the Flexibiz bundle.

Jetstar Group’s Regional General Manager, Leslie Ng revealed that before the Flexibiz bundle was introduced, business travellers were hesitant to book on LCCs for important overseas meetings as the lowest fare plans were often restricted and changes to the booking would be subject to additional fees.

“When we introduced the bundle, it was targeted at the price-conscious business traveller. Whatever the reason for travel or the destination, we knew that the hallmark for business travellers is to connect and arrive on time. Flexibiz is proving to be a travel offering for every business,” said Mr Ng.

In May 2017, Jetstar started opening the product to travel agencies and travel management companies. The demand for the product has been fuelled by travel agents who are now able to access the business bundle through the Hahn Air ticketing platform. The ticketing platform provides access to travel agencies in 190 markets to access the fares.

Travel agency, Holiday Tours and Travel’s General Manager for Commercial and Operations, Ronnie Lau said, “Since the Jetstar Flexibiz bundle became available through the Hahn Air ticketing facility, travel agents will be able to access a wider range of products on the Global Distribution System.”

Widening the distribution model for Flexibiz has also made the bundle more attractive to travel management companies (TMC) in Singapore. Carlson Wagonlit Travel – one of the world’s largest TMCs – has recently become among the first in Singapore to include the bundle in its suite of products offered to its business customers.

“Companies are increasingly becoming open to using low-cost carriers for business travel as they try to get the most out of their travel budgets,” said Wai Mun Wong, Vice President, Global Supplier Management, Asia Pacific, Carlson Wagonlit Travel. “We want to give our clients the widest choice of business-relevant travel options, and business bundles from LCCs make a great addition to our offer in Singapore.”

In 2017, Jetstar Asia was recognised as achieving one of the most consistent on-time performance in Asia Pacific, topping many international full-service carriers here, according to global travel intelligence company, OAG.

In addition, listed Jetstar Asia as the only Singapore-based carrier to make the top 10 safest airline list in 201
