Cheaptickets to make Asia-Pacific debut in Singapore
Linda Haden, Singapore, August 31, 2011
 

TRAVIX International, a subsidiary of Netherlands-based BCD Holdings, will be launching Cheaptickets, its B2C online travel-booking brand and the leading OTA in Germany, in Singapore this October.

 

Cheaptickets.sg will feature fares offered by scheduled as well as low-cost carriers operating within Asia-Pacific, using a proprietary system that permits Cheaptickets to integrate with low-cost airlines’ reservation systems, which are by and large not connected to major GDS channels.

 

Isabel Gonzalez, brand manager at Cheaptickets.sg, said: “We will be concentrating on selling flights, which will remain our core product, but the site will sell accommodation as well. Dynamic flight and hotel packages are also on the cards.”

 

Gonzalez mentioned that plans were in the pipeline for similar sites in Hong Kong and Thailand. She added that there were no plans to work with local travel agents at the moment, and that Cheaptickets was concentrating on establishing its B2C presence first.
