Discover the World Drives Dohop Expansion

2019-06-20

Dohop, the innovative Icelandic flight booking and connection platform, has
appointed Discover the World as its global sales partner as it targets ambitious
growth.
The agreement will see Discover leverage its extensive global network as well
as its close working relationships with its airline partners to increase uptake of
Dohop’s revenue generating platform across the industry.

David Gunnarsson, CEO at Dohop, comments: “We are very happy to be
partnering with Discover the World on this new venture. They are a like-minded,
forward-thinking team and bring with them an extensive global client list which is
exactly what we were looking for.”

Ian Murray, Executive Vice President at Discover the World, adds: “At Discover
we’re fast establishing ourselves as the go to company for global digital platform
sales within the travel sector, helping an increasing number of technology
pioneers to distribute their products around the world. We are particularly
excited about introducing Dohop’s award-winning platform and its enormous
potential to a wider audience.”

The Dohop platform is easily integrated into an airline’s existing offering and has
been designed to extend an airline’s current route network by linking together
flights from other carriers without the need for interline agreements.

Chris Baldwin, Commercial Director at Dohop, says: “The technology that
Dohop provides will draw more virtual interline bookings to an airline’s website,
providing benefits to both the airlines and their passengers.”

Since rolling out its platform Dohop has delivered notable success across its
customer base, which has included easyJet, Eurowings and Gatwick Airport.

Aiden Walsh, Airline Account Manager for Discover the World, comments:
“We are delighted to announce our partnership with Dohop, aimed at driving
the expansion of its ingenious flight connection platform. It’s a great fit for
Discover that leverages our core capability and underlines our value to travel
tech companies. Most importantly, it will open up significant growth and revenue
opportunities for Dohop.”
