Hotelbeds claims 87% growth in ancillary sales transaction value in three years

Hotelbeds Group is claiming 87% growth in the total transaction value of sales in its airline travel ancillary business over the last three years.

The division provides airline partners with ancillary revenues from the sale of accommodation, transfers, destination activities and car hire services available via the Hotelbeds Group platform.

More than 50 airlines are connected to group´s portfolio of travel offerings.

The recent integration of Tourico Holidays is expected to accelerate business consolidation in North America as well as in Europe and Latin America.

Head of new business development Jon French said: “We´ve almost doubled the volume of sales coming from airlines over the last three years by focusing on three core areas – contracting the best and widest variety of products, offering best in class technology, and leveraging our unrivalled industry experience and knowledge.

“Most airlines are simply looking for a single partner to provide both technology and product expertise in one solution, and we looking forward to meeting more future airline partners.

“Already we work with around 50 airlines globally such as American Airlines, Qatar Airways, British Airways, Ryanair, Norwegian and Finnair, amongst others.

“We work with them to provide both products – not just accommodation, but also transfers and activities, car hire and destination services, and connectivity via a technology solution.

“Additionally, we offer more complex all-in-one solutions such as our set-up for easyJet Holidays, where we provide a complete holiday package solution.

“Our future plans are to consolidate our expansion into international markets, especially in Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Latin America whilst continuing to grow in Europe.

“The addition of Tourico Holidays into Hotelbeds Group this June will additionally allow us to accelerate the consolidation of our position in North America due to Tourico´s strength in the local market, as well as in Europe and Latin America, once its integration is complete.”

Hotelbeds Group is participating in the Aviation Festival in London as a sponsor for the second consecutive year.
