Today’s travelers are increasingly using a variety of platforms and providers to shop for, buy and service their travel. ARC believes the future of air travel retailing is a “buy anywhere, service anywhere” omnichannel ecosystem rather than today’s channel-exclusive environments. Through its products, solutions and investments, ARC connects airlines, travel agencies, travel managers and travelers across channels to create a more seamless, transparent and inclusive retailing environment.
ARC is making key investments in a wide range of innovative companies and solutions to support omnichannel retailing. These solutions allow industry partners to retain ownership of their critical systems and technology.
nuTravel is an independent subsidiary of ARC, focusing on innovation and delivery excellence for airlines serving corporate travelers. nuTravel develops applications that provide airlines with online retailing solutions with enhanced features to support travel agency services.
As a leading data aggregation and B2B travel technology provider, Traxo helps travel managers gain visibility into their travelers’ direct bookings and better support duty of care requirements, including sharing data with their TMCs. ARC holds an equity investment in Traxo.
The travel journey is complex, and it is becoming increasingly personalized. Every journey begins with a spark of inspiration, spans the entirety of trip planning and continues through the trip itself.
