Who is involved?
Our launch partner in July 2018 was Air New Zealand – an airline with an impressive history of product innovation and likeminded outlook on the commercial and customer experience opportunities emerging from the intersection of technology and travel. Vantage Airport Group – a global airport investment, development and management company – joined us as our second partner in May 2019.
We’ll be announcing other partners over the coming months. If you’re a forward-thinking travel provider, we’d love to chat further.
