Airline alliance Skyteam has launched a new online booking tool to help event and meeting organisers.
The alliance, which has 19 airlines as members, has introduced a dedicated portal on its website which can be used by delegates to book discounted air travel to events.
Skyteam’s Global Meetings product is free to use and is available for events which have 50 or more attendees travelling by air from at least two countries, excluding the host country.
As well as fare discounts, event organisers using the service can earn one free ticket on any member airline for every 50 attendees that travel with Skyteam to their event.
Mauro Oretti, Skyteam’s vice president for sales and marketing, said: “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.”
Skyteam said it was working on further new features for its meetings programme which will be released later this year.
