Marriott International “Elevates Travel Experience for Chinese Consumers” with Enhanced Mobile Functionality and Global Wallet-Free Travel

Following the recent launch of the Marriott storefront on Alibaba’s travel service platform, Fliggy, a new initiative sees Post Post Pay, Fliggy’s innovative hotel reservation service, allowing qualified users to travel first and pay after their stay.
Marriott announced its redesigned storefront on Fliggy, Alibaba’s travel service platform, and the rollout of Post Post Pay (PPP) functionality across more than 1,000 Marriott hotels globally last month. Through the digital solutions, Marriott International claims to “elevates both the online and offline travel experience for Chinese consumers”.
As part of Marriott’s first phase of service enhancements, its new storefront on Fliggy (marriottcn.fliggy.com) launched in April 2018, will feature approximately 6,000 hotels from across Marriott International’s global inventory of 30 brands, presented in a Chinese travellerfriendly layout.
Through the storefront, Fliggy’s innovative PPP functionality will be offered to qualified Fliggy users at more than 1,000 hotels globally, including more than 270 hotels in the Greater China region, where the service is already available, and in highdemand locations throughout the Asia Pacific region, such as Australia, Japan, the Maldives, Singapore, South Korea and Thailand. To complement these enhancements, Marriott expects to certify over 1,000 hotels globally in its “Li Yu” program, designed to provide travellers from China a warm welcome and the comforts of home anywhere in the world they may go.
