European airport parking leader, ParkVia, has won a competitive tender to be appointed the online parking provider for one of the world’s largest airline groups, IAG (International Airlines Group).
Following a comprehensive tender process, ParkVia was able to successfully secure the confidence of the group after demonstrating its extensive global car park coverage, which currently spans 43 countries and includes in excess of 2,000 car parks.
In a planned phased roll-out, the primary IAG project launch is the dedicated micro website for British Airways. Operating from its home base at London Heathrow - one of the world's busiest international airports - British Airways flies 123,000 daily passengers to more than 200 destinations in 75 countries across the globe.
With a dedicated parking platform designed and managed by ParkVia, British Airways customers looking to pre-book airport parking, valet parking or airport hotels with parking, will be able to search, browse and book the parking product to suit their individual travel requirements across 148 UK and global destinations.
The next phase of development will see ParkVia develop micro-sites for each of IAG’s other leading, international airlines.
Mark Pegler, Managing Director of ParkVia, said: “This is a red letter for ParkVia: to become a preferred supplier to a globally renowned airline group, which encompasses your own country’s flag-carrying airline, is quite an achievement.
“As an established and recognized supplier to the aviation industry, collaborating with in excess of 22 airlines, ParkVia is well positioned to deliver a seamless service that complements the travel experience customers already enjoy with IAG’s impressive portfolio of leading airlines.”
As Europe’s favorite airport parking retailer, ParkVia is dedicated to connecting the world’s drivers with parking spaces in 42 countries. Its online retail platform allows consumers to book parking as part of their journey, working with both car park operators and travel industry market leaders to ensure that parking is visible at the right time.
Encouraging its philosophy of ‘Choose parking’, ParkVia believes pre-booking is the key element in the travel process, allowing customers to plan in advance and giving them freedom of choice to select the parking product that suits their specific journey type.
Founded in 2008, ParkVia has grown in popularity and reputation over the last 11 years, particularly within the wider airport parking sector. As an established partner for many of the world’s leading international airports, ParkVia is able to maximize visibility for official car parks and ancillary products by covering more points of entry with its targeted marketing expertise.
Today the services of over 2,000 parking providers are promoted to ParkVia’s 3.5m registered users, as well as a large network of partner websites, that includes airlines, travel partners, online travel agents and in-car navigation technology - making it an attractive and lucrative proposition for partners looking to collaborate for white label and in-path projects.
