ITB CHINA booth 900 – SHANGHAI – 17 May 2018 – Arrture, an innovative global loyalty programme platform and the exclusive loyalty programme for the Plaza Premium Group, has chosen Blacklane as its first chauffeur partner.

Arrture promises a multitude of airport and air travel rewards and privileges to its frequent traveler members.
