ASMALLWORLD AG (SWX:ASWN) announces global partnership with Hyatt

Zurich, 21.11.2019 - ASMALLWORLD AG (SWX: ASWN) further expanded its travel offering by entering a global partnership with Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, as a new member of the Hyatt Privé preferred partner program, which covers the brands Park Hyatt, Grand Hyatt, Andaz, Miraval, Thompson, Alila and The Unbound Collection hotels. This partnership will allow the company to offer its customers exclusive benefits during their stay at these Hyatt properties.

The agreement will make ASMALLWORLD Travel, a fully owned subsidiary of ASMALLWORLD AG, a preferred partner for Hyatt's luxury hotel brands Park Hyatt, Grand Hyatt, Andaz, Miraval, Thompson, Alila and The Unbound Collection hotels. As preferred partner, ASMALLWORLD Travel can offer its customers a host of benefits when they stay at participating Hyatt properties worldwide.

Benefits for customers include daily breakfast for two guests; room upgrades (confirmed within 24 hours of making the reservation or based on availability at check-in); World of Hyatt points and $100 equivalent hotel credit to use during the stay; early check-in and late check-out (subject to availability) and a welcome gift is also provided. These benefits come at no additional cost to the customers.

This partnership with Hyatt Hotels & Resorts will further expand ASMALLWORLD's travel offering and is another important element for the launch of ASMALLWORLD's own hotel booking platform which is currently in development.
