Check out Hong Kong's pioneering business travel mobile app

It aims to provide efficient business-ready travel service based on corporate travel policies.

TravelSky recently announced the launch of CozyGo, Hong Kong’s first business travel management mobile app. The app is a pioneer in the market, and taps into cross-border corporate travel demand, especially among SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises). It aims to provide efficient business-ready travel service based on corporate travel policies.

The business travel management mobile application, TravelSky notes, is designed to enhance the efficiency of the business travel booking process, and the autonomy of the traveler to manage his/her own booking and approval process within just a few clicks, without the need to spend extra time on internal communications for approval of the trip.

The company also says users of TravelSky partner companies will be able to use CozyGo for flight searching and booking, trip management, and order approval functions. It also stores frequent flyers’ information to provide convenience for repeated bookings.

Business travel demand is strong and Hong Kong’s large SME sector in particular is known for frequent cross-border business travel. According to TravelSky, bookings with Chinese commercial airlines increased by almost 12% from around 449 million in 2015 to around 502 million in 2016. And in the first two months in 2017, domestic flight bookings with Chinese commercial airlines recorded a YOY increase of nearly 14%, to around 75 million.

“As a leading provider of information technology solutions for China's aviation and travel industry, we are excited about extending our technology to Hong Kong. CozyGo is our flagship product for travel management companies in China, which achieved 120,000 downloads in 2016," says Mr. Peng Bo, General Manager of GDS (Global Distribution System) Business Unit, TravelSky Technology Limited.

"We aim to capitalize on Hong Kong’s high-potential market to capture market share in the corporate travel sector here. Today’s launch aligns with our vision to become a world-class company, internationally competitive and stable in the Chinese market.”

TravelSky is headquartered in Beijing and a solely-state-owned high-tech enterprise that specialises in providing information service for air travel and tourism industry. It is a central enterprise administered by State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council.
