Huawei launches travel solutions with partner; Beijing Olympics begins 100-day countdown
Hotel metasearch company Trivago and Huawei have formed a strategic partnership to bring new travel solutions to consumers. A new Trivago app will launch on Huawei’s AppGallery enabling users to compare more than 5 million hotel and alternative accommodation options in 190 countries. As of September 2021, Huawei’s AppGallery had 580 million monthly active users in more than 170 countries.
In addition, Trivago and Huawei will jointly develop solutions for accommodations listings of the paid hotel search feature on Huawei’s Petal Search and Petal Maps. The commercial launch of Trivago in Petal Search will be on October 29. Skift's Executive Editor Dennis Schaal said Trivago intends to steer clear of US regulatory complications so the partnership doesn’t include mainland China.
