Rezdy partners with Papillon


Bailador portfolio company Rezdy recently announced its partnership with the world’s largest aerial sightseeing company Papillon Group.

The landmark partnership saw Papillon connect their bespoke software to the Activity Channel Manager, a portal where tour operators can connect with agents and OTAs that can resell their products whilst streamlining all channels from one platform.

“We were very excited to announce our partnership with Papillon at IPW. We see it as a pivotal moment which will revolutionise the way in which tour and activity professionals manage and distribute their product, and will be the gateway for more major suppliers to connect their custom software to our global distribution network,” said Simon Lenoir, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Rezdy.

Demand for Papillon was apparent at IPW, where the integration drew attention from global agents who were eager to connect with Papillon, and Rezdy’s pipeline of global inventory.

“The Las Vegas based Papillon Group is thrilled to be a partner with Rezdy. Effectively and efficiently managing our growing channels of distribution is a key part of our strategic growth. Rezdy is playing a key role with this objective,” said Robert Y. Graff, Vice President Marketing and International Sales of Papillon Group.

The new relationship with Papillon Group adds iconic U.S. experiences to the Rezdy B2B portfolio including Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters, Grand Canyon Helicopters, Grand Canyon Scenic Airlines, and Grand Canyon Coaches. Papillon is the only company that flies the entire length of the Grand Canyon, with bases in Las Vegas; Boulder City, Hoover Dam; Grand Canyon West; Grand Canyon National Park and Page, Arizona.

The Papillon partnership further strengthens Rezdy's US growth.
