EasyJet Links Businesses To Traxo T&E

EasyJet is connecting its corporate customers to travel and expense management solutions in a new collaboration with Traxo, the companies revealed in a press release Tuesday (July 23).

The European airline is working with Traxo to connect with businesses and their employees that book trips via easyJet’s online or mobile platforms. Traxo is able to integrate its CONNECT platform into corporates’ back-offices, allowing businesses to retain data and visibility into their business travel booking even when companies use an airline’s own website to make a reservation.

Traxo explained in the release that companies can often lose visibility into business travel and spend when employees book directly with travel suppliers like easyJet, rather than using corporates’ travel agencies. CONNECT allows itineraries booked directly with a supplier to be automatically added to the Traxo T&E platform.

The integration uses Traxo’s FILTER solution, which connects to corporates’ email servers, allowing Traxo to retain data from emailed itineraries and bookings whenever travel is booked with a supplier directly.

“We’ve heard loud and clear that safety, duty of care and value for money are key priorities for both corporate travel managers and their traveling employees,” said easyJet Head of Business Development Andrea Caulfield-Smith in the release. “By partnering with Traxo, our corporate customers have the opportunity to use Traxo to get visibility of their business travel bookings, which are made directly on easyJet’s website or mobile app, and to get the most of both worlds — the same low fares and quality service they expect alongside the assurance of having visibility of those bookings and making them available to their duty of care provider for safety tracking.”

Traxo Founder and CEO Andres Fabris said that by adding easyJet as a partner in its Traxo CONNECT platform, joint corporate customers can “manage a more seamless, cost-effective direct booking option.”
