Travelport, the business services provider to the global travel industry, has today announced the development of a mobile app for CTS Viaggi, the Italian member of the WYSET (World Youth Student and Educational Travel) Confederation. The app, called CTS Mobile, is available for users of Apple and Android products and is available immediately from Google Play and the Apple App Store.
CTS Mobile lets travellers search for flights and hotels using maps or current location, and allows the user to filter results by price or proximity. Once the preferred flight or hotel have been identified, travellers can quickly and easily complete the purchase in three easy steps using a credit card.
The development of CTS Mobile is part of a wider program of technological partnership between Travelport and CTS Viaggi, with the aim of offering their youth travel services across all the latest platforms and devices.
Damiano Sabatino, Travelport’s General Manager for Southern Europe, said: “We hear almost daily how important smartphones are and their impact on everyday life in Italy and we also know how important this channel is for travel. At Travelport we are delighted to be bringing innovative mobile solutions to our customers and the travelling public”.
Roberto Viola, CTS’ CEO, adds: “Our young and dynamic customers consistently demand technological innovation and products that are seen as ‘cool’. To satisfy this demand we are thrilled with the introduction of CTS Mobile, which is already having a big impact on our travellers. We were also hugely grateful to partner with a proven travel pioneer in Travelport, whose technology and content are the backbone of this product that will bring us much closer to our young customers”.
