TAP Portugal said it has extended 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 and 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.”
Discover the World has earned a reputation as a leader in global travel distribution and its success in developing a worldwide network of 85 offices in more than 60 countries capable of exceptional representation performance is unmatched.
