TAP PORTUGAL ENTERS PHILIPPINES WITH DISCOVER THE WORLD’S HELP
SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ, May 29, 2014—TAP Portugal, named the best airline in Europe for the third consecutive year by Global Traveler, continues to extend its route network and, to support its growth, has entered the Philippines marketplace with its partner Discover the World providing sales and marketing support.
Celmira R.S. Monteiro, TAP Portugal’s head of sales development & efficiency said, “Discover the World has provided us with solid performances in Austria, Malaysia and Singapore. We are committed to the Philippines and have recently joined the local BSP enabling travel agencies to directly ticket their customers on TAP. Since Discover implemented the process of getting BSP in place, it was a logical choice for us to partner with them in this market.”
“We are excited to work with TAP Portugal in the Philippines and happy to have 11 new destinations in Europe and Latin America to sell beginning in June,” said Jenny Adams, CEO of Discover the World. “These new routes give us even more opportunities to sell TAP Portugal, and we look forward to growing their business in the Philippines. We are proud they continue to expand their business with us and I know our team in the Philippines will provide them with great results.”
