Gulf Air has launched a new tool that enables travel agents to book interline flights with special fares.
The ‘Instant Book and Price’ solution has been developed in tandem with the airline’s technology partner Clarity Airline Solutions, and Travelport, the GDS company.
The new dynamic pricing tool will offer special fares for 900+ interline destinations using pricing agreements with more than 68 airline partners. This will allow passengers to book tickets with multiple flights and on multiple airlines, including stopovers in many destinations, all within their Gulf Air ticket. Baggage will be checked through to the passenger’s final destination.
“With Gulf Air’s ‘Instant Book and Price’ tool, travellers can now fly with Gulf Air and its partners, choosing from an array of convenient flight connections and to a wide range of global destinations – all with a single Gulf Air ticket,” explained Gulf Air’s director of sales & marketing, Yahya Bu Ali.
“In tandem, the tool helps travel agents better serve our customers with greater efficiency by offering dynamic pricing. We are very excited to be able to offer our loyal customers more flexibility and convenience as they plan their travels,” he added.
Clifford Christopher, co-founder of Clarity Airline Solutions, commented; “Gulf Air can now make use of their partners’ route network and inventory with instant price quotes, to anywhere in the world, without the need to be filed through any channel, which in turn enhances greater customer service.”
Gulf Air partners with several other carriers, including American Airlines, Egyptair, Philippine Airlines and Thai Airways.
