eSky confirm success as first major partner on Kiwi.com’s Tequila platform
Several thousand transactions already carried out through eSky
eSky, a leading online travel agent in Europe and South America, has joined Kiwi.com’s Tequila platform. The company is “delighted with the results”.
The Polish-based online travel agency is selling Kiwi.com’s travel products under its own branding. It is receiving top-level 24/7 support for its customers from Kiwi.com.
Tequila was launched last year with the aim of enabling those who sign up to the system access to all routes and deals generated by Kiwi.com’s Virtual Interlining.
By signing up, eSky has gained access to one of the leading databases of low-cost carriers, as well the capabilities that Virtual Interlining offers.
As these are coupled with highly competitive pricing, Kiwi.com sees increased booking volumes across all its channels.
Virtual Interlining allows customers to automatically combine flights from more than 650 airlines, many of them budget carriers that do not normally collaborate with each other, into a single itinerary.
Through Tequila, Kiwi.com provides B2B solutions and gives travel agencies full access to all of Kiwi.com’s products. This allows them to be repackaged as white label offerings with great results.
eSky Group has been successfully realizing dynamic international expansion for several years. Currently, it offers its services on almost 50 global markets and plans further development.
Leveraging Kiwi.com’s technology
David Petrovic, Head Of Distribution Partnerships at Kiwi.com, said: “We are delighted that eSky has decided to expand its year-long cooperation with us to become our first major partner using the Tequila platform.
“Developed by our engineers, Tequila allows online travel agencies like eSky to leverage Kiwi.com’s technology to sell a broader range of travel offerings and enter into new verticals without the time and expense of having to build their own systems.”
“Kiwi.com will arrange revenue-sharing models with such partners as it looks to grow its revenue streams.”
Jakub Bajorski, Product Implementation Director at eSky, said: “We are working on scaling the partnership and planning to add Virtual Interlined capabilities as the final stage of the planned rollout and are delighted with the results to date.
“We are seeing several thousand transactions being carried out as part of this full B2B partnership.
“At eSky, we are still providing the first level of support so that we stay close to our own customers.
“We are pleased with the way the partnership is working and that both companies are gaining from increased volumes.”
