airasia Super App has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Archipelago International to expand the airasia Super App hotel booking platform’s portfolio by more than 40,000 rooms and residences in over 200 locations across South-east Asia, the Caribbean, the Middle East, and Oceania.
The partnership also stands as one of airasia Super App’s efforts as an OTA and hotel booking platform to support Indonesia’s Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy’s target of 7.4 million foreign tourist visits to Indonesia in 2023.
Lim Ben-Jie, head of emerging markets, airasia Super App, said: “By uniting both our strong brand presence and extensive network, we believe this partnership will be a symbiosis of mutualism that benefits all stakeholders, as well as being our real contribution to supporting the growth of the Indonesian tourism industry.
“Our unique end-to-end travel booking experience for users allows the airasia Super App to present more cross-sell marketing opportunities and increase visibility for direct hotel partners in reaching the right target market.”
John M Flood, president & CEO, Archipelago International, added: “The travel industry is steadily recovering after the pandemic, and Archipelago is gearing up to welcome the greater influx of travellers this year as the confidence to travel grows.”
airasia Super App users can now access a number of leading properties under Archipelago International. Currently, the airasia Super App has inventories of more than 700,000 hotels worldwide.
