Marriott deepens Alibaba partnership with enhanced Fliggy deal


Marriott International, which first entered into a partnership with Alibaba last year to court Chinese travellers, is enhancing its collaboration with the Chinese e-commerce giant with the rollout of Fliggy’s Post Post Pay (PPP) functionality across more than 1,000 Marriott hotels globally.

As part of Marriott’s first phase of service enhancements, its new storefront on Fliggy – Alibaba’s travel service platform – starting this month features approximately 6,000 hotels from across its global inventory of 30 brands, presented in a Chinese traveller-friendly layout.

Marriott is enhancing services for Chinese guests through redesigned Fliggy storefront and its own Li Yu programme

Through the storefront, Fliggy’s PPP functionality will be offered to qualified Fliggy users at more than 1,000 hotels globally, including more than 270 hotels in the Greater China region, where the service is already available, and in high-demand locations throughout the Asia-Pacific region, such as Australia, Japan, the Maldives, Singapore, South Korea and Thailand.

To complement these enhancements, Marriott expects to certify over 1,000 hotels globally in its Li Yu programme, designed to cater better to Chinese guests.
