Qantas trade partners are set to benefit from an extension to the airline’s lower pricing initiative when booking fares through Qantas’ next-generation distribution platform.
First Travel Group has rebranded its consolidation unit First Fares to Express Tickets which will be available industry wide for new agencies. Express Tickets provides all fares and ticketing requirements 24/7 at competitive rates.
‘We have taken the Covid period to adapt to a changing market by providing our members with easy to use systems,’ First Travel Group CEO Malcolm MacLeod says.
Express Tickets has integrated into its operation the fares and ticketing technology, Aeronology, which FTG announced late last year. The software is expected to increase travel agent productivity with the ease of selling ancillary products at the time of booking.
Proactive and innovative agents stand to benefit as much as airlines do from increased flexibility that the New Distribution Capability (NDC) will bring to the travel industry, according to a speaker at Travelport Live in Bangkok this week.
