Leading online travel agency recognized as a top performer by Philippine Airlines
Fareportal, a global travel technology company powering seven travel brands including CheapOair.com and OneTravel.com, was recently awarded a 2018 PAL Award by Philippine Airlines. This annual award recognizes the travel agencies delivering the highest sales revenue to the airline over the past year.
For three consecutive years, Fareportal has made it on to the elite list of PAL Award recipients under the global OTA category. Philippine Airlines representatives Josh Vasquez and Charisse Rodriguez presented this year’s award to Fareportal’s Senior Vice President of Supplier Relations, Tom Spagnola, at Fareportal’s Headquarters in New York City.
“It is an honor to receive our third consecutive PAL Award from Philippine Airlines,” said Spagnola. “This award is representative of the continuous collaboration between the PAL and Fareportal teams over the years and we are grateful to Philippine Airlines for their continued partnership.”
Philippine Airlines is the flag carrier of the Philippines and operates non-stop flights to Manila from three North American gateways including Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Vancouver. Philippine Airline is a world class carrier and was recently rated a 4-star Airline by Skytrax.
“Fareportal has been one of Philippine Airlines’ strongest global partners for the past several years,” said Josh Vasquez, the New York Area Manager for Philippine Airlines. “This award is our way of expressing gratitude to the whole Fareportal team for their unwavering support to PAL, and at the same time, a recognition of the two companies sharing the same quality of “Buong-Pusong Alaga” or whole-hearted service we both provide our customers.”
“With over 450 airline partnerships worldwide, it is inspiring to see the positive impact we have on our partners’ businesses,” said Sam S.
