Bonza gets behind Groups with its new specialist booking division

The low-cost carrier is putting its best foot forward for business and event bookings with its new Groups department now in business.

Bonza is making it easier for large groups to book and travel together.

Group bookings on Bonza just became a whole lot cheaper – and just in time for Christmas - with the low-cost carrier slashing the cost of more than 300,000 flights to celebrate the launch of its new group booking division.

The limited-time offer is for 20 per cent off flights from November through to March, but businesses will need to be quick as the promotion runs until on 23 October.

The promotion has been launched to support the bolstering of the airline’s business events and bookings arm. Event planners can now work with the low-cost carrier’s dedicated Group Travel Champions on a bespoke planning and booking process where there are 10 or more travellers.

“We have already seen healthy demand for group bookings as more people are choosing to travel to regional locations for business events,” said Bonza CEO, Tim Jordan.

“There’s also a very healthy appetite to travel Bonza for sporting events and in fact, one of our first-ever bookings when we first went on sale in January was for 550 netball players travelling to Townsville for a tournament and we’re humbled to see them return again for next year’s event.”

Bonza’s Group Travel Champions can provide a quote to event planners with 10 or more travellers on the same flight. Each quote includes 23kgs of checked baggage per person, eight kilograms of hand luggage and seat selection to ensure the group sits together.

Planners are asked to pay a 25% deposit within seven days and final names and payment due 30 days prior to departure.

To add flexibility, Bonza can change names on the bookings at no extra charge up until two days before wheels up. Payments can be made via bank transfer or credit card to give organisations and groups additional options.

“We are hearing from a number of organisations who are choosing to celebrate the end of the year with a trip across our network for the same price as a traditional restaurant booking or catered event,” Jordan added.
