Carlson Wagonlit Launches CWT Online Booking Tool

Carlson Wagonlit Travel today announced the launch of its online booking tool, CWT Online, which makes booking international travel easier for China-based business travellers. This will come as good news to the 140 Irish companies who have China-based offices. An industry-first, CWT Online is the only international OBT currently available in China.

CWT Online is powered by TravelSky, the leading provider of information technology and commercial services to China’s air travel and tourism industry.

CWT Online gives travellers access to real time international air bookings, including market fares, client corporate fares and specific airline promotional fares. It allows travellers to carry out searches by airline, type of ticket (one way or round trip) and by price. Each quote generated includes lowest fare, corporate fare, itinerary and link to service team information. Available in Chinese and English, CWT Online also incorporates travel policy information.

Albert Zhong, General Manager CWT China, said: “Business travel is continuing to grow and currently Beijing Capital International is the second busiest airport in the world. With the continued growth of air traffic in China, providing our clients with this type of tool and giving them easy access to international online booking facilities sets us apart from the rest.

“Clients can reduce their average ticket price, increase policy compliance, and reduce transaction costs and the internal cost of processing travel. The simplicity of CWT Online really encourages travellers to adopt self-booking.”

CWT Online is a further extension to CWT’s existing OBT for domestic travel in China. Available since 2007, it has gained significant online adoption of over 60% among CWT clients. CWT Online is already being successfully used by two prominent clients in China. CWT China is currently incorporating the tool within all China-based clients’ travel programmes.
