Paxport signs extended partnership agreement with Thomas Cook after being chosen to supply advanced flight distribution technology to support Thomas Cook’s ambitious growth plans in the Netherlands.
Fosun Tourism Group in 2020 re-launched Thomas Cook as an online-only travel business, simultaneously bringing back one of the travel industry’s most recognised brands. Paxport continues to support this exciting journey as Thomas Cook accelerates their growth plans, working collaboratively to help drive future success.
Utilising a variety of Paxport products and services in order to deliver a best in class experience to their consumers, Thomas Cook will continue to harness powerful flight distribution and booking technology to source a wide array of airline fares and information for this latest market expansion.
Paxport’s wide reach of content and agile products has enabled Thomas Cook to launch quickly into a new market with the full support of the experienced Paxport team.
Paxport’s leading flight aggregation platform PaxFaB forms a core part of the new Thomas Cook offering and is supported by the use of PaxCache, delivering sophisticated and highly accurate flight caching technology.
Paxport’s award-winning digital payment technology further supports the Thomas Cook business through the use of the Pax2Pay service, which includes the provision of payments by virtual cards aiding automation, reconciliation and creating a new revenue stream.
Trevor Bates, Aviation Manager at Thomas Cook said: “Our focus for our new Netherlands business was taking as much of our existing digital platform as we could. Extending our relationship with Paxport in this way enables our customers to access flying from some of the major carriers and from all airports to give them choice and flexibility.”
Simon Taylor, Head of Sales & Account Management at Paxport said: “Our long standing relationship with Thomas Cook continues to evolve and we are proud to be supporting their venture into a new European market. Paxport’s agile end-to-end technology is the perfect enabeller to support this growth and we look forward to helping Thomas Cook continue their exciting journey.”
