Quotes

Orbitz said "Our sites offer hundreds of airlines, which are eager to capture the revenue American is choosing to forgo and we will continue to show our customers a broad range of flight options to thousands of destinations in the US and worldwide.”"
"Documentation workflows and associated customer documentation was an area where we recognised we needed to improve and it is an area where we needed a strong entrepreneurial development partner. We believe the d‐flo partnership we have entered into will fill that gap.”"
"The chance to attend an industry event that's not based in London has clearly proved popular and we're looking forward to ensuring travel gets the profile it deserves during the Brighton Digital Festival."
Marco De Gregorio, co-founder of Lodgify, said: "Many European holiday rental businesses do not have their own functional website yet, even though we have learned from comparable sectors, such as the hotel industry, that this channel can account for 10-20% of bookings. That is a missed opportunity and we’d like to change that.”"
