Aussie travel tech company Aeronology has signed a long-term agreement with one of the largest corporate travel businesses in Greater China.

The partnership with Connexus Travel covers the use of all distribution technology applications that Aeronology provides the travel industry with, including AeroTickets.

Connexus Travel CEO Gloria Slethaug said the company has a focus on new technologies covering internal work efficiencies with robotic and integrated content for online transactions, NDC and travel industry API content.

“Asia is changing rapidly,” she said. “The volume of transactions in the Asian market is growing year on year while the costs are on the rise, and the old manual processes will not keep up with this demand.

“Legacy technology abounds in this market and Connexus Travel needed to break out and start an evolution.

“That’s why we have partnered with Aeronology. They are globally cloud-based, work in API web services we trust and are in the process of being NDC-certified, and they are very agile.

“I’ve known Russell for many years, and he has a history of delivery. That’s very important to Connexus Travel.”

Aeronology CEO Russell Carstensen said: “Asia was always going to be our focus for 2020 – especially North Asia – and with our recent decision to be multilingual, starting with traditional and simplified Chinese, it was a natural connection to work with Connexus Travel.

“Connexus Travel has one of the best reputations in Asia, and it’s our pleasure to be their technology partner.”
