Air Canada, the largest airline and the largest provider of scheduled passenger services in the Canadian market has appointed APG Philippines as its GSA starting January 2022.
Under the agreement APG will be providing wide ranging sales and marketing services to Air Canada throughout the Philippines as well as reservations and ticketing support through its contact centre. The partnership aims to strengthen Air Canada’s presence in the Philippines.
In early December, Blue Ribbon Bags (BRB), one of the fastest-growing ancillary services in travel and the world leader in airport delayed baggage retrieval services, and APG, the world’s leading airline distribution network, have formalized a global partnership.
BRB provides a Delayed Baggage Protection product in which the traveler receives real-time push notifications via email, SMS, and WhatsApp regarding the status of the delayed bag for the first 96 hours of it missing. If the delayed baggage is not returned within the 96 hour service period, the traveler would receive a satisfaction guarantee payment due to BRB being unable to fulfill their service obligation. BRB’s primary distribution channels include but are not limited to airlines, online travel agencies, travel management companies, travel insurance providers, and bank/credit card providers.
