A new range of fares is being made available by Transavia via Travelport’s travel commerce platform as it seeks to attract more business travellers.
The Air France-KLM group low-cost carrier has also signed up to the technology company’s rich content and branding solution to better control how its services are visually presented and described to travel agents.
Hervé Kozar, chief commercial officer of Transavia France, said: “In April, we introduced several improvements and launched new fares to provide our customers with flexibility, greater choice and a wide portfolio of ancillary services.
“For example, our new fare, ’Max’ is designed for business customers as it includes a fast track option and the possibility to amend flights up to two hours before scheduled departure.
“Enhancing our content with Travelport’s rich content and branding technology provides travel agencies with detailed product descriptions and graphics and help them meet the expectation of both, leisure and business travellers.”
Emmanuel Bourgeat, general manager of Travelport in France, added: “The airline’s new offering is particularly attractive for corporate customers and travel management companies operating in France.
“Travelport’s technology will help Transavia retail its offering by displaying its products in the same way as it would through the airline’s own website.
“In addition, our point of sale, Travelport Smartpoint, allows agents to search and book low-cost carriers and traditional carriers within the same workflow, creating a highly efficient and productive environment for our customers.”
