Air Astana Partners With TripAdmit for Sales of Tours and Activities
Air Astana will use TripAdmit’s white label technology solution which will allow customers to book a range of destination tours, experiences and activities when booking travel. Kazakhstan-based Air Astana offers service to 40 domestic and international destinations.
On Wednesday (June 8, 2022), Air Astana announced a new partnership with TripAdmit, which will allow customers to select and book from a range of experiences, tours and activities at their chosen destination. TripAdmit’s powerful booking software and AI technology will help maximize ancillary revenue for Air Astana, while offering customers a range of exciting experiences in Central Asia and globally. When booking flights, customers will be sent a link to the Air Astana tours and experiences page which will show what is available at their destination, along with further details and the ability to book activities.
In Wednesday’s announcment, Air Astana’s Vice President – Marketing & Sales, Adel Dauletbek, said,
“We are focused on improving the customer experience from the point of booking a flight to their final destination and beyond. TripAdmit helps Air Astana to do that. The booking solution will enable us to extend our ancillary services by providing an exciting range of tours and activities. I am confident our customers will enjoy the new functionality and be inspired by the content that the TripAdmit partnership programme can provide.”
Also commenting on the new booking partnership, TripAdmit’s Director of Travel Partnership’s Carl Cromie, added,
“Air Astana provides customers with an extraordinary product at very competitive fares. By providing tours and activities they will enhance the customer experience by increasing their services, while generating higher unit revenues per passenger. As people start travelling once again, the demand for tours and experiences is growing. Air Astana is now very well positioned to explore the opportunities provided by this sector and we are excited to be working with them.”
