Through this cooperation, HitchHiker is expanding its services for OTAs, travel agencies and tour operators with customers or destinations in China.

Direct connections to Air China, China Eastern, China Southern, Hainan Airlines, numerous Chinese low-cost airlines and access to the Travelsky GDS are the main motives for the cooperation between German software house HitchHiker and Flightroutes24, a leading Chinese consolidator.

HitchHiker has gained another local cooperation partner in Flightroutes24, which now offers users of HitchHiker’s Flight API and Agent application the possibility to access a comprehensive range of Chinese domestic and international bargain flights from China and Hong Kong.

Flightroutes24 is one of the leading international air ticket wholesalers based in Mainland China and in Hong Kong. The company is part of the Meituan-Dianping Group, China's largest and rapidly growing "online-to-offline" e-commerce group, which currently provides 600 million active users with a wide range of services, such as food deliveries or rental bikes, as well as a broad range of travel services.

"The cooperation with HitchHiker not only expands our exposure within Germany and Europe, we also hope that the partnership will mutually develop our businesses and enhance our products to generate the greatest value for our customers", Nancy Zhou, Senior Director of Business Development of Flightroutes24 Travel Company Limited, comments on the cooperation.

Flightroutes24 provides both negotiated, public and market-specific fares from scheduled airlines as well as fares from regional low-cost airlines such as 9 Air, Eastar Jet, Juneyao Airlines, Lucky Air, Spring Airlines, Urumqi Air and China West Air.

Through this cooperation, HitchHiker is expanding its services for OTAs, travel agencies and tour operators with customers or destinations in China.
