fastjet has announced a pan-African hotel partnership agreement with Venere.com, a member of Expedia, to enable its customers to access Venere.com’s inventory of hotels via the airline’s booking channels.
The Venere functionality will be initially launched as a 'co-brand' product, available via www.fastjet.com, but will later be fully integrated into the booking process. This will allow passengers to add accommodation to flight bookings and complete purchases using fastjet's increasingly popular mobile solutions.
Ellis Cain-Jones, head of commercial at fastjet, remarked, “This is another key milestone in the roll-out of fastjet’s ancillary products and revenue generation plan. Accommodation is a natural add-on for both our leisure and business customers and this partnership offers an extensive choice of hotels across the continent.
“We are also particularly happy that Venere.com has accommodated our mid-term multi-channel requirements, enabling fastjet passengers without internet access to book through our 24 hr call centre following the launch,” Cain-Jones added.
