Skylink selects Farenexus to build new agent booking tool

TORONTO — Skylink has announced that it has appointed Farenexus to build its brand new travel agent booking engine, Magellan.

The Montreal-based consolidator, which serves over 1,200 agents across Quebec and parts of Ontario, says that by appointing Farenexus as its technology partner, it will be able to launch a booking tool that does not require cryptic GDS skills and knowledge.

Magellan, which will be built with the Nexuswind technology, will provide not only a range of negotiated and published fares but also all the web fares of major airlines in one search request. Travel agents will be able to immediately know what is available for their clients in a single request, ensuring the best offer for them. Magellan will also allow Skylink to add additional dynamic content as airlines continue to expand their ‘direct’ API efforts.

“The role of the consolidator is to demystify the complexity of the many air products that the airlines now offer so that the travel agent can direct their client to the best offer in the market for them,” said Skylink’s Joane Tetreault. “The partnership with Farenexus has enabled us to overwhelmingly meet this objective. Farenexus’ in-depth knowledge of our industry was the key to this success. It is a perfect marriage!”

Ravi Kumar Panwar, CEO at Farenexus, added: “We are very pleased to have been selected by Skylink to build this important new tool for their agency and travel agent partners. We understand how confusing and complex finding the best solution for a travel agent’s client can be in this airline omni channel distribution world. We are proud that we have been able to extend our Nexuswind platform and enable Skylink to provide this industry-leading solution that is both very travel agent friend and efficient for its customers.”
