Peakwork technology in China: Zhouyou Technology launches four Chinese airlines with airline vacation solution
Hainan Airlines, China West Air, China Express Airlines and Ruili Airlines launch new travel packages with Peakwork technology
Peakwork’s technology partner in China, Zhouyou Technology, is swiftly rolling out the German travel tech solution to this fast growing market: Four Chinese airlines have just launched the airline holidays solution enabling dynamic packaging of empty seats with third party accommodation offers. Hainan Airlines, China West Air, China Express Airlines and Ruili Airlines are now selling the new product portfolio on their respective websites.
Hainan Airlines, with a fleet of more than 400 aircraft, belongs to the biggest national carriers. Via www.hnair.com, travellers in China can already access domestic package bundles consisting of flight+hotel, with an expanding destination portfolio across Asia due in the next weeks. China West Air (www.westair.cn), which also belongs to Hainan Airlines, has recently launched as well. China Express Airlines (www.chinaexpressair.com) is focused on regional flights in China and complements its offer with flights+domestic hotel components. Chinese low cost carrier Ruili Air (www.rlair.net) with it’s Boeing fleet, is quickly growing due to the rising demand for low cost travel in the market. Hotel providers include Agoda, with its vast accommodation portfolio across Asia. All the front-ends are based on Peakwork’s easy-to-implement white label IBE solution which is adapted to each airline’s specific target market.
Qing Zhang, CEO of Zhouyou Technology, said: “We are really looking forward to rolling out Peakwork technology through these four new customer sites. The new product portfolio meets the exact needs of the growing number of Chinese travellers.”
Jan Gerlach, CEO of Peakwork, added: “We are proud to welcome these first four airline partners with our new dynamic packaging solution. Peakwork technology has been adapted to meet the Chinese market requirements, including local hosting of software components as well as localization.” For the Chinese market, Peakwork technology is hosted in the Alibaba Cloud, with VPN connectivity to the Peakwork German headquarters to enable all necessary services.
Peakwork acquired a stake in Zhouyou Technology in February 2019 to accelerate the roll-out of the German travel technology and the expansion of the Leisure Travel Network in China.
