Collinson triples its investment in India
The global leader in customer benefits and loyalty seeks to double its lounge portfolio and boost its technology capability in India over the next three years.
Collinson, a global leader in customer benefits and loyalty, today announces a multi-million-dollar investment into India to fuel additional growth of Priority Pass™, its world-leading airport experiences programme. Priority Pass will double its lounge portfolio in India over the next three years, building on its suite of 45 airport lounges in 20 Indian cities and global network of more than 1,200 lounges and airport experiences.
David Evans, Joint CEO of Collinson said: “India is a vital market and one we see on a par with China in terms of growth potential. With 1.7 billion domestic passengers having flown in 20171and outbound travellers expected to reach 50 million by 20202, the influence of the Indian traveller is only going to increase.
“Having had success with emerging markets such as China, Russia and Brazil, and a presence in India for 15 years, working with 42 clients, it’s exciting to triple our investment in India. We look forward to building out our lounge inventory and our own airport infrastructure, creating more locally relevant propositions and further strengthening our team on the ground with additional skilled local resource, and partnering with Indian businesses to redefine the airport experience for the benefit of domestic and international travellers.”
