AirSXM joins affiliate programme Expedia
AirSXM partners with Expedia to offer US, Canadian and Caribbean customers online travel services. AirSXM will now be able to accommodate its visitors from the US and Canada who are looking to visit the islands of the Caribbean. By joining Expedia's affiliate programme AirSXM can offer its North American and Caribbean customers flights, hotels and car rental bookings at the click of a button.
The AirSXM.com website has experienced a significant increase in traffic to the site since May 2004 as a result of improved search engine rankings. AirSXM.com now boasts a Google ranking of 5 out of 10 points (5/10). Most new visitors to the website originate from the United States and Canada and are looking for flights to St. Maarten and the surrounding islands, such as Anguilla and St. Barths. A popular departure point for most people wishing to travel to St. Maarten is Puerto Rico because of the number of daily flights into San Juan from the mainland.
AirSXM operates as a virtual airline specializing in offering flights to St. Maarten from Europe through Amsterdam. AirSXM makes it possible to fly to St. Maarten at very attractive rates. AirSXM focuses solely on St. Maarten and is therefore a very specialized niche market player. Internet fulfils a key role in keeping costs low. All savings earned through the virtual operations are passed on to the customers who book their passages with AirSXM. AirSXM flights are executed by renowned airline companies, such as KLM, Air France, Dutch Caribbean Exel, BonairExel, CuraçaoExel and Winair.
Because of the geographical concentration of its operations in Europe with The Netherlands as the departure point, AirSXM is not able to offer the same specialized services to customers wishing to travel from the US, Canada or Puerto Rico. By partnering with a US based online travel services provider such Expedia, AirSXM is now able to provide travel solutions to its eager visitors to the website. Expedia was chosen after vigorous testing of online bookingsites such as Lastminute, TravelNow and even TravelGalileo. Expedia's online booking process was found to be fast, convenient and both informative and intuitive. AirSXM was also impressed by the huge savings achieved when booking multiple products (air ticket + hotel + car or cruise) simultaneously.
