CTM partners with Qantas on new distribution model
Corporate Travel Management (CTM) is delighted to partner with Qantas on a new initiative that will further enhance the travel experience for customers.
The carrier today announced the launch of the Qantas Channel, which provides users with a wider range of fares and new content that is not available via traditional indirect booking systems.
CTM will participate globally in the channel that comes into effect on 1 August 2019, ensuring its customers have access to the widest range of Qantas fares, products and information.
“This announcement reinforces CTM’s position at the forefront of the business travel market and we are pleased to be able to offer our customers access to Qantas’ most compelling products, and deliver richer content more relevant to their journey,” said CTM Global COO Laura Ruffles.
“There are a number of exciting developments taking place with content distribution and CTM has the technology and flexibility to provide options to our customers that haven’t been available in the past.”
The agreement follows the launch of the Qantas Distribution Platform (QDP) in 2018. CTM was the first travel management company to enable a selection of its corporate customers to access live QDP content via Lightning, CTM’s proprietary online booking tool.
“CTM is committed to ensuring our customers can have access to an easy booking system that makes available the best content,” Laura Ruffles said. “We will complement this where needed with our excellent service teams giving full support to all the needs of travellers and travel bookers.”
“We will continue to work with our partners, suppliers and customers to ensure they receive the best access to good service, comprehensive content and value for money.”
