We are excited to be among the founding members of the World Alliance for Efficient Solutions. You are invited to read more into this initiative here.

In line with joining the World Alliance, on 29 November, we announced our carbon offset program covering all rides. By funding a wind farm near Pune, India, we will offset carbon emissions for all of our rides!

On the evenings of the 28th and 29th our CEO, Jens Wohltorf, attended two award ceremonies in London. At the Travolution Awards, Blacklane won the “Best on the Road” award! At the British Travel Awards, we were presented with bronze in the category “Best Holiday Add-On Provider.”

Jens Wohltorf (CEO) and Sascha Meskendahl (CRO) attended the Phocuswright Conference in Fort Lauderdale, where Jens told Phocuswire about our plans for airport concierge services.

Jens also gave his view on the Madrid taxi strikes which disrupted the Spanish capital on 29 November.

Our Engineers took part in Blacklane’s first ever Hackathon! From 51 ideas, our team worked on ten projects for the day. Stay tuned for improvements from this in 2018!

Our Asia Miles promotion lasts until the end of December. If you book your Blacklane ride using your Asia Miles member number, you will receive six miles for every 1 $/€/£ you spend!

Blacklane attended the World Travel Market to discuss ground transportation solutions for businesses and events. Did you miss us? Reach the team on wtm17@blacklane.com.
