Japan Airlines Launches Switchfly's Packaging Solution ahead of 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo to Serve Tourists Traveling to Japan
Travel packages seamlessly bundle flights and ancillary products
JAL Group subsidiary, JALPAK Co., Ltd., and Switchfly, a leading travel technology platform from San Francisco, have jointly launched a web-based Dynamic Package reservation system for customers in USA and Canada in October 2019 to power its vacation package bundling of flights, accommodations, transportation, and activities products, including those catering specifically to tourists visiting Japan during the Tokyo 2020 Olympics next July.
Package offering has already been launched in Australia, Singapore, and Thailand. However, the introduction of Switchfly’s platform in USA and Canada, along with upcoming 8 additional markets by March 2020, will boost tourism to Japan providing inbound travelers with a complete one-stop travel shopping experience for planning and booking their trip. For example, travelers booking flights to Japan can easily add a hotel reservation with accompanying ground transportation and offers on local tours and activities. JAL customers will enjoy a world-class online experience with the most relevant and unique travel products for their journey, all delivered seamlessly through the airline’s own website.
JAL will have the advanced functionality to promote dynamic packages to customers of all market segments, no matter their destination. These features allow the airline to maximize marketing spend ROI, strengthen customer loyalty, and gain valuable customer insights by owning their customer.
