PST Travel’s B2B site takes off

MALAYSIA’S PST Travel today unveiled a new dedicated B2B site for local travel consultants, equipped with a booking function for instant confirmation.

Accessible at, PST is waiving the monthly subscription fee for the use of the site’s Internet booking engine (IBE) during the launch phase between August 5 and 31.

PST Travel’s B2B unit head, Robert Saw, said: “We are confident that most of our existing consultants will see the benefits of using this IBE and that it will give them a positive return on investment.”

PST Travel CEO, Ngiam Foon, said: “We have very attractive fares for travel from points in Malaysia for select destinations in ASEAN and North Asia compared to what the average consultant can obtain from their GDS.”

He said cost savings could run up to 80 per cent on select airlines during the launch phase.

“I hope the savings made will drive consultants to (book through) our IBE instead of just using it for their search convenience…Another very compelling reason to use our IBE is the ease of finding the lowest available fare without much ticketing knowledge,” he added.

Ngiam explained that the new site’s launch was timely and would address current challenges faced by consultants, especially the small and medium-sized agencies, which include a dire shortage of staff with sufficient ticketing knowledge, reluctance to commit more financial resources to fund any increased bank guarantees and a lack of access to attractive fares.
