Wizz Air has launched WIZZ RIDE, a new taxi and private transfer booking platform integrated into its existing mobile app, in partnership with B2B provider of car rental and mobility solutions, CarTrawler.
Using CarTrawler’s software developer kit (SDK), Wizz Air has integrated the taxi and private transfer booking platform into its native iPhone and Android apps.
This means Wizz Air customers can now benefit from a seamless, end-to-end travel experience on the airline’s mobile apps through WIZZ RIDE, regardless of whether the journey is on-demand or pre-booked.
Announcing the launch, Aileen McCormack, Chief Commercial Officer, CarTrawler, said: “I am delighted to launch this world-first mobility platform WIZZ RIDE, which will transform the booking experience for its customers and revolutionise the way ancillary products are used by airlines.
“Wizz Air is a value-oriented airline focused on innovation throughout the customer journey. Its mobile-first strategy is a perfect fit for our unique mobility platform and is an important sign of trust amidst a volatile environment for the travel sector. WIZZ RIDE is fantastic news for Wizz Air customers who are seeking a one-stop-shop for all their travel needs, and further strengthens our partners’ brand relevance.
“CarTrawler has an unrivalled, expert insight into the industry and is well placed to drive recovery through innovations such as our SDK platform. This emphasis on the customer will help rebuild the travel sector and offer strong foundations on which we can all grow and thrive.”
George Michalopoulos, Chief Commercial Officer, Wizz Air, added: “As we endeavour to provide a stress-free customer journey, we are always looking to introduce new services that offer great customer experience across all travel stages. The WIZZ RIDE product provides convenient ground mobility services for both pre-booking and on-demand requests which allow our customers to save time and money. A user-friendly service, introduced in collaboration with CarTrawler, is now available at the touch of a button on Wizz Air’s mobile app. We are proud to be the first airline in the world to introduce such an innovative service which paired with our ultra-low fares makes travel easier than ever.”
