I’ve always believed in the power of travel to create positive change in the world. My first travel “job” was helping international students at UT Austin find the most cost-effective way home so they could visit their families. Travel has been my life’s work ever since.

At Spotnana, our vision is to bring freedom, simplicity, and trust to travelers everywhere. This bold aspiration is not something we can achieve alone. That is why Spotnana’s Travel-as-a-Service platform has been designed from day one to be open and accessible to everyone who shares our vision and our dedication to accelerating innovation.

Today, I am proud to announce a new global strategic partnership with JTB Business Travel to bring the benefits of modern travel infrastructure to their customers and partners.

Powering next-generation travel experiences

JTB Business Travel is a full-service travel management company founded over 100 years ago. Like us, they are committed to providing exceptional service while driving positive change in the industry. 

We’re delighted to provide the core infrastructure that enables JTB Business Travel to deliver next-generation travel experiences. JTB Business Travel clients can now access Spotnana’s comprehensive global content and industry-leading self-service capabilities.

“Now our clients will have fully integrated, innovative technology to power their specific travel program goals and needs, promoting operational ease, cost savings, and sustainability,” said Vice President of Global Business Travel Geert de Boo, who manages the JTB Business Travel Network. 

Innovating for the future  

JTB strongly emphasizes sustainability, innovation, and tailor-made solutions for businesses of all sizes. In addition to serving as JTB Business Travel’s next-generation booking platform, we’re also excited to power travel for Goodwings, a climate-focused SaaS travel management system that JTB recently invested in. 

Goodwings has adopted Spotnana’s platform to power seamless travel experiences to businesses focused on implementing sustainability into their travel program.

“Too often in the travel industry, cutting-edge technology and service excellence are mutually exclusive,” said JTB USA President and Chief Executive Officer Tosh Tatezawa. “Today’s business travelers need the most advanced tech tools and superb service, all working seamlessly together.” 

Supporting JTB’s global footprint

I am incredibly excited about the possibilities that lie ahead for JTB and Spotnana as we embark on this journey together. Our partnership represents a commitment to excellence, innovation, and the relentless pursuit of better travel experiences for all. 

I look forward to what we will achieve together on a global scale and the positive impact we will create for business travel.
