GlobalStar China - Swire Travel Joins FareStar Platform

Tuesday, October 20, 2015

Established in 1948, Swire Travel is one of the largest travel management companies in the Greater China region, with a long history of serving corporate as well as individual clients. Swire Travel is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Swire, a large conglomerate of which interests include property, aviation, trading and road transport. Our strong affiliation with sister companies Cathay Pacific Airways and Dragonair has helped us provide a streamlined, efficient service. As a member of the GlobalStar Travel Management network since 2006, we are proud to have joined the extensive FareStar platform, which we believe will enhance the competitiveness of our services in the region.

Additional Value through Fare Savings
By joining the FareStar platform, we are now able to offer the most competitive fares from various markets as well as exclusive fares to all clients in the region. In other words, additional value through significant fare savings can be offered to clients who previously only had access to local fares in their respective markets.
At this stage, fares from the Hong Kong and Taiwan markets, including exclusive fares from Cathay Pacific Airways (CX), Virgin Atlantic (VS), Finnair (AY) and British Airways (BA), have already been made available to clients in the region through the FareStar platform. With further technical enhancements in the pipeline, we eagerly anticipate that fares from Mainland China will be made available to clients in the near future.
With these latest developments, not only can clients leverage on our strong relationships with an international network of market-leading travel partners, but also benefit from a wide range of competitive fares in the region.

A Brand Clients Can Trust
We specialize in providing business travelers a truly one-stop global travel solution that covers everything from initial planning to the final trip home. Our meetings and incentive travel, conferences and exhibitions (MICE) team helps companies arrange and host events inside and outside Hong Kong. Our services also extend beyond the workplace, with various getaway packages for holidaymakers. Ready to serve you around the world, around the clock, and with local expertise, Swire Travel is your most reliable travel partner.

A Strong Regional Presence
To better serve our clients’ needs in the increasingly important Greater China market, we now operate a network of offices in Beijing (Swire (Beijing) Air Service Ltd.), Shanghai (Swire International (Shanghai) Air Service Limited) and Taiwan (Swire International Travel Service Ltd.).

Swire (Beijing) Air Service Ltd. has been wholly-owned and managed by Swire Travel since 2009, and specializes in servicing Beijing’s increasingly sophisticated corporate clients. The fully licensed agency provides a comprehensive range of travel services to foreign and domestic travelers. Along with Swire International (Shanghai) Air Service Ltd., both agencies allow us to provide our first-class professional services to the Mainland China market.

Established in 1989, and currently one of the leading travel management companies, Swire International Travel Service Ltd. (SITS) with branch offices in Taipei and Hsinchu forms our operations in Taiwan. SITS focuses on managing corporate travel for its predominantly international or multinational client base. The agency is involved in wholesale operations, and acts as representation for international trade companies.

With our Greater China Network, we are able to provide customer support regardless whether they are in Hong Kong, Taiwan or Mainland China.
