A mobile flights and hotels application has been developed by Travelport for Italian youth travel company CTS Viaggi.
The development is part of a wider technological partnership between Travelport and CTS Viaggi, with the aim of offering their youth travel services across all the latest platforms and devices.
The CTS Mobile app is available for users of Android and Apple devices and allows travellers to search for flights and hotels using maps or current location, enabling users to filter results by price or proximity. Flights and hotels can be booked by credit card.
Travelport Southern Europe general manager Damiano Sabatino said: “We hear almost daily how important smartphones are and their impact on everyday life in Italy and we also know how important this channel is for travel.’
CTS chief executive Roberto Viola added: “Our young and dynamic customers consistently demand technological innovation and products that are seen as ‘cool’.
“To satisfy this demand we are thrilled with the introduction of CTS Mobile, which is already having a big impact on our travellers.”
Travelport’s technology and content are the backbone of the app “that will bring us much closer to our young customers,” he added.
