Customers now have global access to a full suite of on-demand taxi and airport transfer services, connecting the dots and allowing them to move like never before
Leading platform offers airlines the opportunity to tap into trillion-dollar mobility marketplace
Dublin, Ireland, 9th July, 2019. CarTrawler, the world’s leading B2B travel technology company, has today launched a global travel mobility platform, which allows airlines to offer the broadest range of travel solutions in-app so that they can “own the last mile” for their customers.
This unique, industry-leading platform will offer customers quick and easy access to pre-booked and on-demand private transfers and taxis. This is the culmination of significant investment by CarTrawler in the mobility sector and ensures that airlines can maximise revenues from the mobility as a service (MaaS) market, which is estimated to reach a value of $1.75 trillion by 2030.
Airlines should always be striving to offer a unique customer value proposition through their loyalty programmes. CarTrawler has responded to its partners’ wishes by providing a market-first mobility SDK which affords customers the ability to earn and burn loyalty points as they ride.
Aileen McCormack, Chief Commercial Officer at CarTrawler, said: “I am delighted to announce the launch of the world’s leading B2B global mobility platform, which will revolutionise the travel sector by offering customers a simple, one-stop-shop for all their travel needs to and from the airport. Airlines can now connect the dots and instantly utilise this platform in-app, offering customers a superior booking experience and reflecting the reality that those who don’t rent, ride.
“Airlines need to offer travel solutions that can exist alongside car rental – the ride-hailing market alone is estimated to reach a value of $285 billion by 2030 and the overall MaaS market will grow by 25% over the next five years. However, just 59 of the world’s 473 airlines currently offer mobility services to customers.
“By owning the first and last mile, airlines can maximise revenues from this rapidly growing sector and future-proof their business. At the same time, they will be able to offer customers every possible travel option, strengthening brand loyalty as a result.
“With B2B in our DNA at CarTrawler, quick and seamless integration into the airline app is a key enabler to our strategy. This platform ensures a truly interconnected experience and further strengthens our partners’ brand relevance, giving customers whatever they need, when they need it.”
