The collaboration will make Emirates’ flights more accessible to travellers in key Asian markets
Emirates has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Indonesian online travel agent Traveloka. The partnership establishes the grounds for a strategic partnership.
The MoU was signed by Orhan Abbas, Emirates’ senior vice president of Commercial Operations – Far East, and Iko Putera, Traveloka's CEO of Transport, with the aim of increasing Emirates’ visibility in markets including Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. Both parties will collaborate on joint activities and marketing campaigns.
Commenting on the news, Emirates' Abbas said: “With international borders relaxing, we’ve witnessed the demand for air travel surge across our global markets, which reflects how eager people are to fly again.
"The MoU we’ve signed today opens up new channels for travellers to discover and book on Emirates, and also reaffirms our solid commitment to Southeast Asia as we continue to identify partners and opportunities to contribute to the region’s travel and tourism recovery.”
Traveloka's Putera added: “The tourism sector is rebounding faster than anticipated due to more people finding the confidence to travel. International tourists arrivals almost tripled in January to July 2022 (+172%) compared to the same period of 2021, as recorded in the UNWTO World Tourism Barometer.
“Both Traveloka and Emirates have been sharing the same vision towards recovery, and we hope this partnership will bring greater impact for the travel industry. As a leading travel and lifestyle platform in Southeast Asia, Traveloka is committed to work hand-in-hand with our partners to fulfil our customers’ aspirations.”
