Porter partners with Flex Travel Solutions to enhance agency bookings

TORONTO — Porter Airlines has selected Flex Travel Solutions Inc. (FTS) as its tech partner of choice to create a more seamless commission payout and reporting process for travel agencies.

With the new partnership, travel agency bookings for Porter Airlines and its vacation packages division, Porter Escapes, are now available through the FTS platform. FTS is a travel technology company with a suite of B2B products designed to facilitate the post-booking process and reporting between travel suppliers and their agencies.

Agents can expect a number of upgraded processes, including:

  • Faster commission payouts
  • Detailed reports, including export functions
  • Simplified management of branches in a self-serve fashion
  • Centralized promotions

Travel agencies can register and create a Flex Travel Solutions profile here.

“This enhancement to our commission payment and reporting process gives our agency partners consistent and timely payments, with enhanced features to review real-time sales results and commission payments,” said Michael Curmi, Director, Agency Sales & Distribution. “This is a timely upgrade as we get set to expand our route network across North America and begin working with new partners.”

The news comes during a period of growth for Porter, which is extending its service to destinations across North America with up to 100 Embraer E195-E2 aircraft. Service is scheduled to begin later in 2022.
