Air Tickets RTW fare innovation

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: P.T Australian travel agents are now able to book and issue Round the World (RTW) and Circle fares anytime online, using a feature of Air Tickets SmartTickets Online suite. The process of issuing RTW and Circle fares was previously a complex and time-consuming task.Air Ticket’s innovation is a world-first and is simple to use and process, according to Air Tickets business systems manager Diana Mufic. “Just tick a box and you’ll have a Round the World or Circle ticket issued in less than 80 seconds,” Ms Mufic said. “SmartTickets will even suggest cheaper fares if they’re available and any changes that need to be made will be automatically highlighted so the agent can correct and re-book seamlessly.” Air Tickets discreetly introduced the booking innovation in late August this year. Veteran travel consultant Lyn Rowlands of JBR Travel in Victoria issued the first ticket after clicking on the RTW option out of curiosity. “It was just so easy and only took about a minute to issue the ticket” Lyn said. Air Tickets is offering all travel agents the opportunity to win back the cost of their RTW or Circle ticket fares by issuing them online before the end of November 2012. Air Tickets recently won the inaugural ‘Best Travel Agent Technology Innovation and ‘Best Agency Support Service’ at the 2012 Australian Federation Travel Agents (AFTA) National Travel Industry Awards.
