TORONTO — Following Air Canada’s realignment of its Tango fare structure, travel agents using Travelport Agencia are entitled to sell the absolute lowest fares available on Air Canada that no other GDS can match, says Travelport.
According to Maurita Baker, general manager, Travelport Canada, “no other GDS has a point-of-sale platform available to the agency community which qualifies for Air Canada’s AC2U connection. Travelport’s advanced technology allows Agencia users to access Tango fares at rates no other GDS in Canada can match.”
Added Baker, “booking Air Canada through Agencia offers travel agents three very strong advantages. First, they will find the lowest available Tango fares – fares that are in some cases significantly lower than those found in any other GDS. Second, Tango fares booked in Agencia are commissionable but those booked in the GDS are not. And last but certainly not least, agents booking via Agencia have the ability to make seat selections without the need to make an additional call to the airline. With these huge advantages, now more than ever is the time for Canadian agents to consider using Agencia.”
According to Neil Muir, CIO & VP Property & Procurement, Flight Centre Canada, said, “given the proven efficiencies Agencia has delivered to our business during our pilot program, Flight Centre Canada is currently implementing it for all of our Canadian retail agents. Agencia saves our agents time through finding the best Air Canada and GDS fares in a single search and improves accuracy by automatically building passives for integration with all our mid and back office systems.”
