GLOBAL hotel booking site Agoda.com has partnered with low-cost carrier (LCC) Jetstar to share resources and offer co-developed holiday packages in Asia.

 

Through the alliance that went live with a soft launch in March, Jetstar’s Asia-based customers are able to access Agoda.com's proprietary hotel inventory through the LCC’s website Jetstar.com.

 

The two companies are planning to offer holiday packages and specials via the Jetstar Holidays network, including weekly deals targeting Asia-Pacific destinations.

 

President and CEO of Agoda, Robert Rosenstein, said: “As two entities that have been focused on Asia-Pacific destinations for much of the last decade, both Agoda and Jetstar have always been dedicated to getting travellers the best deals online. Working together, we hope to create even more compelling offers.”

 

Jetstar group chief commercial officer David Koczkar said that in partnering with Agoda, Jetstar was effectively expanding its brand and customer reach.

 

“Through such strategic partnerships, Jetstar continues to offer our customers an expanded travel product that further drives revenue growth, but importantly, also complements our Pan Asian growth strategy,” he explained.

 

“In partnering with Agoda.com, Jetstar customers can now access a wider variety of holiday packages and hotel options, and get better value for their money,” he added.
