SpiceJet signs an agreement with Hahn Air Systems, enabling the airline to sell its flight tickets across the latter’s booking platform.
Based in Dreieich, Germany, Hahn Air is a “provider of distribution services for air, rail and shuttle partners and the ticketing expert for travel agents.” The company operates an e-ticket platform that gives travel agents access to tickets of other airlines via computer reservation systems.
There are over 300 partners including 50 non-GDS (Global Distribution System) airlines in the Hahn Air network, enabling them to be booked through over 95,000 travel agencies in 190 markets.
SpiceJet can now sell its flights via the code H1 on Hahn Air’s HR-169 ticket, available to book through the latter’s partner travel agencies.
The agreement will enable SpiceJet to gain better access of international markets along with improving customer convenience and service procedures. This further boosts the airline’s global outreach programme, that entails Europe amongst its foremost target markets.
“We have charted out a systematic growth path for SpiceJet and the time is ripe for us to reach out to a wider audience while enabling our customers to avail an extensive network with elevated convenience. The association will help us to penetrate the untapped markets which will in due course reflect in our business growth proposition,” says Shilpa Bhatia, senior vice president of commercial at SpiceJet.
