Orbitz forms global travel management partnership




Orbitz for Business, the corporate travel group of Orbitz Worldwide, has formed a partnership with UK-based GlobalStar Travel Management.

The move takes Orbitz for Business into 75 new countries across Europe, Latin America, Africa, Asia (including China and India) and the Pacific Rim.

GlobalStar operates a partner network that comprises more than 80 agencies in 75 countries, with 3,500 office locations, 14,000 employees, and $13 billion in annual travel sales.

Orbitz for Business, mainly based in North America and Europe, claims it will benefit from GlobalStar's local market expertise, innovative technology platform, consolidated data management system, and global account structure.

Orbitz for Business president Frank Petito said: "After considering a variety of alternatives, we were confident that GlobalStar aligned most closely with Orbitz for Business in a few critical areas."
