Orbitz for Business is expanding globally through a new partnership with global corporate travel specialist GlobalStar Travel Management.
The new partnership will allow local travel management solutions in 75 new countries. This will extend Orbitz for Business into Europe, Latin America, Africa, Asia and other locations along the Pacific rim.
The agreement expands on existing Orbitz for Business presence in North America and Europe. It is designed to help corporate customers build global travel programs with fully-integrated reporting and locally-delivered service and support.
“We are thrilled to work with GlobalStar to expand the Orbitz for Business portfolio and deliver a comprehensive set of travel management solutions to corporate customers across the globe – regardless of their size, location, or desired mix of online or offline service,” said Frank Petito, president of Orbitz for Business.
“After considering a variety of alternatives, we were confident that GlobalStar aligned most closely with Orbitz for Business in a few critical areas – a commitment to technology innovation; transparent data integration and integrity; centralised account management with local market expertise; and world-class customer service.”
By adding GlobalStar to its existing portfolio of travel management capabilities, Orbitz for Business is now able to deliver full service corporate travel solutions with local service and support for all major points of sale.
