Online travel firm Yatra.com on Wednesday said it has collaborated with Amazon Business to provide its hospitality partners with a wide range of products catering to their needs.

They will get access to deals from over 3.5 lakh sellers across the country, the statement said.
"We are glad to announce our association with Amazon Business to help our hospitality partners for all their daily and monthly product requirements. This is another step towards diversification of our portfolio beyond travel," Yatra.com Co-founder and CEO Dhruv Shringi said.
Amazon has been a market leader in the ecommerce space, and through Amazon Business, Yatra wants to offer an avenue to its partners where necessities are just a click away, he added.
Amazon Business marketplace helps business customers conveniently discover and save on over 15 crore products with the added advantage of GST invoice for input tax credit and bulk purchase discounts, Amazon Business Director Peter George said.
"The partnership will help our sellers reach lakhs of hotels across the country as they kick-start operations again," George said.
Yatra provides bookings for more than 108,000 hotels in India and over 1,500,000 hotels around the world.
Earlier, in July, the online travel company had entered into a partnership with upGrad Enterprise, the business-to-business arm of online higher education startup upGrad, to make its foray into the educational technology (edtech) segment.
As the company aims to diversify its portfolio beyond travel, this partnership shall enable its corporate clients to deliver advance learning and skill development for their employees, Yatra said in a statement.
However, the company did not disclose any financial details of the partnership.
