Ramon Poblete, Global TMC Sales Manager – APAC of United Airlines shared, “The impressive list of corporate buyers from last year’s event was one of the key decision making points. We see potential in investing time with our existing customers and also getting to know new potential customers.”
Poblete continued, “United Airlines believes in the strategic importance of being a key industry player in China’s vastly diverse market which is rapidly becoming one of the pivotal markets in the global travel industry. CTW China delivers corporate buyers who represent both global and local companies with significant potential for United Airlines.”
The Asia Pacific and China regions are one of the key strategic focus points for United Airlines. Offering more non-stop flights between the United States of America and China than any other carrier, United Airlines is also the only carrier offering non-stop services between the United States of America and China’s tier 2 cities. It is also set to introduce new 787-9s to more routes in China and around the APAC region.
Poblete cited CTW China as a natural event choice for United Airlines as “our continuous expansion and growth in China is a testament of United Airlines’ commitment to this most important market. We are eager to share with the corporate buyers the many improvements we are making across the entire company such as installation of satellite-fed Wi-Fi internet on over 890 aircrafts, to the introduction of new Chinese meals and entertainment options.”
“Our Global Corporate Account Managers, National Account Managers for China and our Director and Managing Director will be attending CTW China 2016. We are thrilled to be able to spend time with corporate buyers and share with them our exciting improvements as well as discuss new and better ways of doing business together in China and around our region. 2016 is going to be an electrifying year for United Airlines,” said Poblete.
