IBS Software and Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, have launched iFly Corporate to transform the airline’s corporate flyer experience.
iFly Corporate will allow Etihad to manage multiple corporate accounts with a one-stop solution, that enables direct distribution by replacing intermediaries and ensuring corporate customer retention.
Etihad’s partners will now benefit from a self-service corporate travel solution, that provides a seamless booking experience across multiple platforms, through integration with Etihad’s Passenger Service Systems and the end-user’s HR systems.
Premium partners will also be able to unlock exclusive discounts including extra baggage, bonus miles and priority check-in for all bookings. A configurable business rules engine will help Etihad corporates to manage user profiles and travel agreements, while ensuring compliance with employee travel policies.
Martin Drew, Senior Vice President Global Sales &Cargo Etihad Airways, said: “Etihad launched iFly Corporate to take our corporate solutions to the next level as business travel returns. The holistic solution will both streamline our internal operations and benefit our customers’ corporate experience – and we are looking forward to a continued partnership with IBS Software on our joint mission to modernize the air travel experience.”
Vijay R Chakravarthy, Vice President, IBS Software, said: “We are proud to be working with Etihad as the launch customer of our pioneering iFly Corporate product. The solution will further elevate Etihad’s corporate services, helping the airline to enhance cost savings, policy compliance and integrated corporate loyalty. We are excited to embark on the journey into the next generation of corporate travel solutions with Etihad and believe this will be a prosperous partnership for both companies.”
