Cathay Pacific has introduced Business Plus in India. It is a programme that helps corporate houses manage bookings of their employees in a cost effective manner. Through a dedicated Business Plus login, the company’s travel manager can manage travel bookings, assign and redeem points, and control “other administrative functions”. Available travel reports help access travel expenses in an organised manner.
Business Plus has a 12-month contract period. By flying with Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon, companies can earn and accrue Business Plus points that helps them progress through the 5-tier system, while enjoying certain rewards and privileges. These include cabin upgrades, Marco Polo Club membership, lounge passes and more.
Cathay Pacific’s regional sales and marketing manager of South Asia, Rajesh Menon said: “In view of the significant growth opportunities from small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), we have launched this programme to cater to their travel needs, which can be managed through our website or via their travel agent. Cathay Pacific also recognises that SMEs are of key importance and have played a vital role in India’s economic development. This is why India has been selected as one of our first markets for Business Plus launch. We will be rolling out the programme in other key markets during the course of 2018.”
