LONDON – BUSINESS TRAVEL SHOW STAND B310 – 20 February 2019 – Blacklane has opened a new office in Brisbane, Australia. This is Blacklane’s fourth office, after Berlin, Singapore, and the newly-opened Dubai location.
Blacklane will hire 30 people across multiple departments, including sales and customer service, to:
• Add corporate clients and travel partners in Australia and New Zealand.
• Grow the airline complimentary transfer business. Blacklane provides chauffeured rides to and from airports for select Emirates and Hainan Airlines guests in 18 cities and five countries.
• Strengthen Blacklane’s round-the-clock, multi-lingual availability for travelers, travel managers, executive assistants, chauffeurs and airport concierges.
Australia is one of Blacklane’s top source markets, thanks to Australians’ increasing outbound travel. According to the Australian Federation of Travel Agents, trips to the country’s most popular outbound destinations increased to nearly 11 million in 2018, up 4.2 percent over 2017.
Tai Cerwen leads the office as site operations manager. She has worked for Blacklane for four years and was previously based in Berlin.
