Turkey’s low cost airline, Pegasus, has renewed its contract with travel technology platform, CarTrawler. The two firms have been enjoying a successful partnership since 2013, with CarTrawler providing booking engine software for the airline, which has seen significant car rental growth year-on-year. CarTrawler and Pegasus evolved their partnership in 2015 when the travel tech firm began to provide ground transportation solutions for the Turkish airline, following on from the already successful car rental partnership.
The range of multimodal options CarTrawler provides, bolstered by the successful relationship between the two firms, has been credited with securing this renewal. Pegasus carried 20.78 million guests in the first nine months of 2017, achieving 14.9% growth in total guest numbers, comprising of both domestic and international travellers.
Aileen McCormack, Chief Commercial Officer with CarTrawler commented: “We are proud to be doing business with such a fast paced, innovative company like Pegasus and are thrilled that they are taking full advantage of our market leading multimodal services. CarTrawler is the best-converting online car rental and ground transport platform and together with our partners we are revolutionising the travel technology sector.”
Güliz Öztürk, Chief Commercial Officer of Pegasus Airlines commented: “The full retail experience we receive from CarTrawler systems is more conducive to our requirements and the needs of our guests. We are thrilled to be looking to the future with CarTrawler, as we work together on industry leading technological advances.”
