SkyTeam Enhances Global Meetings Product, Launches Online Booking Tool

Product facilitates organization of large-scale events worldwide

AMSTERDAM, 13 May 2013 – SkyTeam, the global airline alliance, has enhanced its Global Meetings product to offer more convenience when organizing international events.

New features include an online self-booking tool, enabling delegates to book discounted travel on any of SkyTeam’s 19 member airlines through a dedicated portal on SkyTeam.com, as well as increased discount levels.

The Global Meetings product is free to use and has been designed to simplify the process of organizing travel to international meetings, conventions and conferences. To qualify, the event must have 50 or more attendees traveling by air from a minimum of two countries - other than the country in which the event is taking place.

Organizers can register their event for the Global Meetings product from 2 months to 5 years in advance by visiting SkyTeam.com.  In addition to the new online booking tool, other benefits offered by SkyTeam’s Global meetings product include:

  • A wide range of fare discounts off the applicable fares of SkyTeam’s 19 members’ published fares on more than 15,400 daily flights.
  • An enhanced Productivity Reward Program - offering organizers one free ticket on any member airline for every 50 attendees that travel with SkyTeam to their event.
  • The possibility for delegates to earn miles with any SkyTeam airline loyalty program.

SkyTeam is also working on a number of additional features for its Global Meetings Product that will be introduced later in the year.

“International event organizers can choose SkyTeam with confidence knowing delegates can arrange their meetings from 1,000 worldwide destinations in a few simple clicks via our new online booking tool,” said Mauro Oretti, SkyTeam’s vice president Sales and Marketing. “The enhanced Global Meetings product is SkyTeam’s cost-effective solution for the competitive MICE sector, which combined with our presence in key markets such as North America, Greater China and Europe, meets the demands of today’s meetings industry.” To find out more about SkyTeam’s Global Meetings product, click here.
