Traveloka targets full post-pandemic recovery by end of 2022
Aims to play a significant role in aiding local tourism rebound, in conjunction with its 10th year anniversary
KUALA LUMPUR, 1 March 2022 — In conjunction with its 10th year anniversary in the region, Traveloka, Southeast Asia’s travel superapp, aims to help rebuild and revive the local tourism sector.
Traveloka will continue its COVID-19 recovery efforts in Malaysia to help contribute significantly to the reopening of the local tourism industry, the third-largest contributor to Malaysia’s GDP.
“With the future reopening of Malaysian borders to international travellers, we are committed to continue working with stakeholders at the federal and state government levels, as a conduit to drive local tourism activities,” said Angelica Chan, Country Manager, Traveloka Malaysia.
As soon as the first travel bubble to Langkawi was announced last year, Traveloka worked closely with Tourism Malaysia, and achieved a 70 per cent increase in flight bookings, 40 per cent growth in hotel bookings, and a three-fold jump in tourist attraction receipts.
Commenting on the travel superapp’s renewed enthusiasm in playing a bigger role in the local tourism scene, Tourism Malaysia director general Dato’ Haji Zainuddin Abdul Wahab said, “We welcome Traveloka’s initiatives to constantly be agile in their pursuit of digitising travel experiences and making it an integral part of every Malaysians’ lives. And, especially as we are gearing up to revitalise the economy once more, Traveloka’s drive is a refreshing start to a new decade of possibilities.”
With this in mind, Traveloka appoints Diana Danielle as brand ambassador for Malaysia to commemorate its 10 years in Southeast Asia. The travel superapp hopes to further engage and understand local users and partners alike, in the spirit of Keluarga Malaysia, to orchestrate dreams and customise offers.
On her appointment as one of Traveloka’s brand ambassadors, singer-actress Diana Danielle said, “I am truly heartened by this appointment. Travel has always been a way for my family and I to create memories and has become an important part of our family life. The travel industry was one of the hardest hit during the pandemic, and I am looking forward to playing my part in helping Malaysia rebuild the tourism industry through Traveloka.”
The travel superapp will continue to fulfil users’ lifestyle and travelling aspirations through extraordinary deals at highly competitive pricing from platform partners in the airlines, attractions, hotels, as well as spa and beauty segments.
