DREIEICH — Reporting network growth of over 16%, the year 2017 proved successful for Germany-based Hahn Air Group.
Despite the challenging times for the industry, says the company, the distribution specialist integrated a total of 46 new carriers into its network of air, rail and shuttle partners, allowing them to travel on Hahn Air HR-169 tickets in over 190 markets.
More than 350 partners now use the group’s ticketing solutions that the company says provide the missing links in airline distribution via GDSs worldwide. The company says it works with some 100,000 travel agencies.
Last year alone 29 additional partners came onboard with HR-169, including Flair Airlines (F8), which announced its interline agreement with Hahn Air in December 2017.
Hahn Air’s General Manager, Nikolaus Gormsen, had this to say: “Both Hahn Air and Hahn Air Systems have been striving to offer quality products and customer service that’s tailored to the needs of all our partners, no matter their business model and size. The fact that we’ve achieved a turnover of US$1 billion for our clients speaks volumes for the popularity of our ticketing solution and directly reflects our dedication to both sides of the customer spectrum. Propelled by the 2017 results, we look forward to continuing our mission in 2018 and creating additional business opportunities for air, rail and shuttle companies as well as travel agents worldwide.”
Hahn Air’s fleet operates out of Dusseldorf and Frankfurt (Egelsbach). The German scheduled and business charter airline was founded in 1994 and since 1999 it has also specialized in distribution services for other airlines and indirect ticket distribution. Millions of passengers travel between 4,000 locations using Hahn Air’s HR-169 tickets every year, according to the company.
