GETTHERE.COM; ITN.NET TRAVEL; AND, AMERICANEXPRESS.COM
|GetThere.com, a provider of Internet-based business-to-business travel booking systems, and American Express Company today announced that the ITN.net travel booking website has been integrated with the American Express Travel & Entertainment website. The convergence of the two sites is the first phase of a multi-faceted relationship between the companies. The move also extends GetThere.com's position in business-to-business travel systems, including providing advanced booking solutions to corporations, airlines and E-commerce websites.|
The new combined travel website is being powered by GetThere.com and can be accessed by clicking there or by visiting the American Express travel site. Visitors logging onto ITN.net will see an introductory page announcing the new site. ITN.net was the industry's first user-friendly, comprehensive travel booking site on the Internet in 1995. Because the integrated site continues to be powered by GetThere.com, it provides the same simple booking capabilities as ITN.net.
