Bonza caters to event planners with new group bookings arm


Bonza has launched a group bookings arm with 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 Tim Jordan, CEO of Bonza.

“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.”

Event planners must pay a 25 per cent deposit within a week of booking, while final names and payment are due 30 days before departure. Bonza allows name changes on bookings at no additional cost up to two days before the departure.

To celebrate the launch Bonza is offering discounted flights to event planners who contact the airline’s Group Travel Champions using the promo code TAKEOFF20 until October 23.

“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,” said Jordan.
