Worldhotels partners with China’s TravelSky

WORLDHOTELS has signed a deal with China-based air travel and tourism IT solutions provider, TravelSky, for the two companies to provide mutual access across their respective inventories.

The agreement will allow TravelSky customers to access Worldhotels’ global portfolio of more than 450 hotels, while giving Worldhotels an expanded presence in China through TravelSky’s GDS and travel agent network.

TravelSky’s global computer reservation system is subscribed to by over 7,000 Chinese travel agents. Its GDS supports more than 8,000 domestic hotels, and 60,000 hotels elsewhere in the world.

In addition, TravelSky processes more than 200 million passengers annually, through 30 domestic and 200 regional and international airlines, operating at 147 airports across China.

Worldhotels vice president Asia-Pacific, Roland Jegge, said: “This partnership dramatically extends our potential distribution reach in China’s rapidly growing travel market. It is a significant milestone for Worldhotels in the world’s most populous country.”

TravelSky is headquartered in Beijing, and has more than 4,000 employees. The company was listed on the Hong Kong stock exchange in 2008, and has subsidiaries in Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Europe and the US.
