American Airlines relaunches corporate bookings website.
American Airlines is relaunching its online corporate bookings site in order to meet growing demand from corporate customers.
The airline has said that it is relaunching its direct online corporate booking tool at CorporateAAccess.com. American has reportedly teamed up with Cendant to create a fully integrated solution to meet corporate travel needs. David Cush, vice president and general sales manager at American Airlines, said that the airline has been asked for direct access to its content by many customers.
According to the airline, the new CorporateAAccess.com will allow customers to book privately negotiated fares and rates on American, American Eagle and AmericanConnection flights, hotel stays and car rentals. In addition to the private rates and fares, CorporateAAccess.com users will be able to shop and book publicly available fares for other airlines, hotel merchants and car rental agencies and the redesigned portal will offer corporate travel managers instant online access to real-time traveller data and improved reporting that supports easy integration into existing back-office systems.
American said that it will be testing the product with several key accounts during the fourth quarter of 2005 and plans to have a full roll-out of the product by the end of the first half of 2006.
