SINGAPORE March 13, 2007
Agoda, an independent online travel company that specializes in securing the lowest discount hotel prices in Asia Pacific and around the world, today announced the signing of an agreement with Viva Macau Airlines to distribute web-based hotel reservation services.
Viva Macau is Macau's second home airline, but the only one focused on providing an international network of services from Macau International Airport.
"Viva Macau is the first discount airline in the former Portuguese colony. The agreement will offer significant benefits to passengers," said Arthur Lai, Viva Macau's Commercial Director.
"The decision to select Agoda.com was due to the company's product coverage in a number of key destinations, including Macau, Jakarta and the Maldives," stated Lai. "Agoda also provides Viva Macau with a unique, flexible solution, a 24/7 live call center, and great rates for our passengers."
Tina Di Cicco, Viva Macau's Global Head of Marketing added, "Agoda will enhance our service with the sale of hotel rooms at discount rates on our website and, at the same time, promote Macau as the Las Vegas of the East. We are extremely pleased to partner with Agoda.com and look forward to reaping significant benefits as a result of the agreement."
Wilfred Fan, Agoda's Vice President, Business Development, contends that the distribution agreement with Viva Macau Airlines further solidifies Agoda's strong position in providing cost-effective partner solutions to the Low Cost Carrier segment of the airline industry in the Asia Pacific region.
"Agoda's agreement provides advantages for Viva Macau travelers who book directly, thus reinforcing our position as a leading travel distribution company," Fan said. "This partnership also signals the maturity of Asia-based online travel companies. Our technology, products and services can compete on the global stage."
