Business travellers can now save up to 35 percent on business flights with flytowork.ie, the new Irish corporate travel Website, launched this week by Travel Management Solutions, the e-Commerce subsidiary of the Atlas Travel Group.
Based on the latest Internet booking engine technology from Datalex
, flytowork.ie is the corporate world`s answer to faster, easier and more cost-effective travel procurement. Following the success of the leisure travel portal GoHop.ie previously launched by Atlas Travel, flytowork.ie was designed specifically to lower the cost of purchasing corporate travel and also to simplify the lives of travel managers and personal assistants who book travel for larger corporations.
Internet-based travel is particularly well suited to the corporate market, as it allows the discerning business traveller to quickly and efficiently match their exact travel requirements 24 hours a day, seven days a week at the click of a button. The flexibility of the Datalex Internet booking and fares solution enables flytowork.ie to offer best-fare shopping using both low-cost and scheduled airlines in addition to a wide range of accommodation and car-hire options with online reservations facilities.

A user-friendly interface and straightforward help functions guide users through bookings swiftly and efficiently. Experienced and dedicated corporate reservation agents are only a phone call away to further aid in booking requirements where necessary.
