DALLAS, Oct. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ID90 Travel, the global leader in non-revenue travel solutions for airlines and their employees, re-launched its suite of SaaS mobile and desktop travel products, which is revolutionizing the way more than 22 million airline employees plan and book travel.
By focusing on making access to airline employee flight privileges much easier and incorporating related travel perks -- such as exclusive discount rates on hotels, car rentals, cruises, trip insurance and more -- ID90 Travel has become the one-stop travel site for more than two million airline employees and 20 million "family, friends and retirees" who travel worldwide on "non-rev" tickets issued by airlines.
The two major components of the re-launch include are an update to ID90 Travel's industry-leading airline employee ticketing solution, and a revamped airline employee discount travel site, ID90travel.com.
"We've found that one of the primary contributors to airline-employee happiness is easy access to their travel privileges. Unfortunately, many carriers' non-rev ticketing systems lag severely behind in usability and user experience, with some still relying on a manual ticketing process," says Mike Stacy, CEO of ID90 Travel. He concluded, "To improve that process and help employees navigate more easily to book their flight and make hotel reservations too we've streamlined the process -- and put it all on a modern, intuitive shopping and booking site."
Says Donna Towle, Vice-President Employee Relations at United Airlines, "Space available travel is a tremendous privilege and motivator that comes with working at an airline. ID90 Travel's new platform automates the entire process, giving our employees the same experience as their favorite consumer travel site, while also saving our carrier money. They help our employees make the most out of their travel privileges, which greatly helps in our employee retention and recruitment efforts."
As airlines cut costs and look for productivity gains, ID90 Travel's innovative and cutting-edge technology helps its airline clients and their employees by providing a low-cost employee travel solution. Its product suite enhances the non-rev travel experience for the employee, creating happy employees while reducing internal technical, call center and Human Resource department costs.
