MELBOURNE-BASED travel technology firm Aeronology has been accepted into the Singapore Tourism Board’s “Travel Technology Accelerator” program.
The initiative, backed by the Singapore Government, is a six month program aiming to support “the world’s most promising technology startups”.
Aeronology chief Russell Carstensen said he was thrilled to be part of the scheme, with the move following an invitation for the firm to also join the prestigious IATA Accelerator program (TD 27 Mar).
“APAC is a key market for our business,” Carstensen said, noting that the regional head offices of tech firms such as Sabre, Amadeus and Travelport are based in Singapore.
Despite the impact of COVID-19, “Aeronology is in one of the best positions, as we are cashed up, with our team doing what needs to be done,” Carstensen added.
