Powered by the Elleipsis’ TravelTalk® platform, the new service is supported through agreements with the China International Travel Services (CITS) and Amadeus.
“With M2B World’s access, our global agreement with Amadeus, and the advanced TravelTalk platform, we are uniquely aligned to leverage the emerging Asian travel market. It´s the right product, the right market, and the right time,” said Colin Binny, M2B World Travel CEO.
