The industry is undergoing constant transformation and digital travellers are having greater control. Our value proposition is to be a single partner for multiple geographies to promote the image of our airlines. We expect sustainable performances from Airline Representation and Ground Handling, with partnership-building driving our regional expansion strategy for these segments. BlueSky will continue to leverage the American Express Global Business Travel franchise to grow its Corporate segment. Much focus will be put on the repositioning of Holidays by BlueSky brand, by improving our customer touchpoints, to capture more holiday makers. Our Leisure segment will offer more tailor-made products and social experiences. Islandian has edged closer to top-of-the-class competitors and we expect to reach a 2.5% share in targeted markets. The main focus will be to enhance the direct sale conversion rate, improve margins and diversify our markets.
