Holiday Trips Now Available for Booking
Germania has greeted the new year by launching its own “Germania Holidays” travel portal. From now on, customers can not only book their flight with Germania, but also their entire holiday. Germania, with its green and white aircraft, is positioning itself as a travel provider, thereby making it easier for its customers to access attractive and affordable vacations. The portal’s continually expanding range of services means that customers can now book excursions, rental cars, transfers and travel insurance in addition to flights and hotels.
“As a holiday airline with more than 30 years of experience in the market, we are now further expanding our offering with Germania Holidays. In addition to our popular onboard services, customers can now also book products that we recommend in and around our destinations,” said Karsten Balke, CEO of Germania, about the launch of the new offering. Setting up the travel portal is an integral part of Germania’s entrepreneurial commitment and allows the company to spread its commercial wings.
The new website www.holidays-germania.com allows customers to access a product that combines Germania flights with local services supplied by tour operator vtours. The Aschaffenburg-based company provides access to numerous hotels in different price brackets throughout Germania’s route network. The packaging and booking arrangements for these trips are facilitated using technical solutions by Traveltainment, a company located in Aachen.
“We opted for this tour operator as the fulfilment partner for Germania Holidays because of our positive and long-term experience with vtours,” commented Andrea Mertens, managing director of the newly-established Germania Reisen GmbH: “After twelve months of development and the launch of the travel portal, we are now focusing on product management as the next step, so that we can offer a new kind of experience for trips to the Mediterranean and to Germania’s typical niche destinations.”
Germania Holidays is the travel portal of Germania Reisen GmbH. In co-operation with renowned tour operator vtours and system provider Traveltainment, Germania Holidays offers package tours within the route network of Germania airlines, which encompasses more than 55 destinations in Europe, North Africa and the Near and Middle East. Travellers have a choice of over 375,000 holiday packages every day. In addition to flights and hotel accommodation, other services, such as excursions, rental cars, transfers and travel insurance can be added individually.
Germania is an independent German airline which was established over 30 years ago. On short-haul and medium-haul flights the airline, with its distinctive green and white livery, carries more than 3 million passengers per year. Germania offers connections from 20 departure airports in Europe to over 55 destinations within the continent, North Africa and the Middle East. Reversing the common industry trend, Germania continues to offer complimentary snacks, soft drinks, magazines and a minimum of 20 kg free baggage allowance.
Germania operates scheduled, charter and ad-hoc flights. Together with the Swiss airline Germania Flug AG and Bulgarian Eagle, Germania’s fleet currently has 29 aircraft. Germania Technik Brandenburg GmbH is responsible for the company’s aircraft maintenance. www.flygermania.com
