LateRooms lands deal with City Airport

17/04/2007

LateRooms.com is set to provide hotel booking facilities for London City Airport’s 2.4 million annual customers.

The late availability hotel specialist will integrate its hotel booking system into London City Airport’s website. The site, http://www.londoncityairport.com, already enables travellers to book flights online for all operators flying from the airport. LateRooms will provide information and booking facilities for hotels around the airport as well as the 34 most popular destinations.

70 per cent per cent of the airport’s customers are business travellers, however many City-based workers use the airport for leisure trips because of its central location. Providing late availability accommodation and industry-leading offers alongside flight booking enables London City Airport to transform its website into a flexible booking hub for any trip.

“When booking a trip, many people look at the cost of a flight as the determining factor, however the cost of a hotel can completely override the money saved,” said Chris Allen, CEO, LateRooms. “London City Airport can capitalise on its successful website, which is already being used as a central booking hub for flights, to offer further savings to its customers for their travel plans.”

“LateRooms’ calibre of European hotels means it can provide the best late availability deals in the UK and at our top destinations,” said Bernard Lavelle, Commercial Director for London City Airport. “The technology integrates seamlessly into our existing flight booking pages, enabling customers to book the best-value trip, whatever their budget or reason for travel.”
