This comprehensive platform is designed to serve a wide range of properties, including independent hotels, large chains and brands, and casinos and integrated resorts, on their complete distribution and e-commerce needs.
Gautam Lulla, CEO of Pegasus, said, “We are proud to continue the legacy that Pegasus has set as an industry pioneer.

The breadth and depth of our platform provides the functionality, flexibility and scalability needed to help hotels strengthen their connections to guests and maximize revenue and profitability.”
“We have worked with Travel Tripper for many years as a key technology partner to help us connect with guests and realize sales and revenue gains. As a result of the merger and now as they move forward as Pegasus, their offerings are stronger and better, and we look forward to the even bigger opportunities that the future promises,” said Louise Parsons-Davey, Regional Director of Revenue and Distribution at Highgate Hotels.
Pegasus will debut the rebranded platform at the upcoming World Travel Market in London from Nov. 4-6. “We look forward to unveiling our vision and strategy for the new company in the coming weeks, as well as meeting with our valued clients and industry leaders,” said Lulla.
