Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT) has launched a mobile booking app called CWT Online China, the business travel and meetings organiser announced today.
The company said in a statement that the new app enables China based business travellers to book domestic travel via their smartphone, an industry-first in this market.
CWT had already released the international online booking tool, also called CWT Online specifically for the Chinese market in September, another first for the industry.
"We are the first and only Travel Management Company (TMC) in China to launch a mobile app to book business travel," said Albert Zhong, General Manager, CWT China.
The mobile app was developed in-house, said Zhong. The app is exclusive to CWT travellers on iOS and Android, and will be available on Blackberry and Windows Phone soon, the company said.
