Munckhof Business Travel invests in unique booking tool for seafarer transportation
As of November 3, Munckhof Business Travel is launching its new smart booking tool: AVA Maritime. AVA Maritime is specially designed for booking seafarer tickets. With this tool users can book, change and cancel airline tickets online themselves. This flexibility in combination with the offline service, makes the service of Munckhof Business Travel unique within the Marine & Offshore industry.
Booking of maritime tickets is one of the specializations of Munckhof Business Travel. Because of the flexibility and complexity of the Marine & Offshore industry, seafarers can book airline tickets against special rates and conditions. In many cases only travel consultants can realize these bookings, including changes. With AVA Maritime, users can now do this themselves. Of course, the offline service will remain in full force. In addition, customers can also use the seafarer transport service by road with Munckhof Taxi. This combination makes the service unique.
Expansion of AVA Technology
AVA Maritime is a new module within the AVA Technology Platform launched in September. This platform, with all its state-of-the-art travel technologies, aims to make the organization of (business) travel as efficient as possible for both customers and employees.
Tom Roefs, Managing Director: “The addition of AVA Maritime to this platform is a logical investment for us. With the launch of this tool, we are responding to the need of our customers to manage, change and cancel bookings for seafarers themselves. On the other hand, the personal customer approach and comprehensive service remain as important as ever. The tool therefore supports our service. In the end, relieving ship crews remains human work after all.”
