Wotif yesterday launched its new Dynamic Packaging product – the day after CEO Scott Blume told shareholders at the company’s Annual General Meeting that bookings from its core Australian and New Zealand websites remains “soft” with no “booking uplift” since the Federal election.
“The Asia business continues to under-perform and any turnaround is unlikely until the second half of this fiscal year,” Mr Blume said.
He said Wotif’s flight business continues to out-perform “and we believe our unique functionality is gaining market share”. Mr Blume was especially enthusiastic about the introduction of dynamic packaging.
“We are now able to combine, sell and merchandise both domestic and international packages including flights, hotels and at time transfers and other products.”
