A NEW technology offering from Aeronology now allows travel advisors to book and ticket Jetstar fares via a direct connection to the low-cost-carrier’s platform, with payments via a weekly invoice rather than the longstanding instant purchase requirement through the JQ agent portal.
The new system, offered in partnership with Express Tickets, is a first for the industry, with the Jetstar LCC connection complementing Aeronology’s GDS and NDC links to see the Australian tech provider’s offering become even more comprehensive.
According to Aeronology CEO Russell Carstensen, the move means agents have accessible content to all Jetstar services in Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Japan. “TIckets can be paid for weekly via Express Tickets’ normal invoice,” he noted, adding that advisors can also add on their own markup and add an in-house logo to the Jetstar flight itinerary.
“To provide the ability to sell Jetstar off our platform and be able to bundle packages together in key leisure markets will be critical as the market evolves, rebuilds and expands,” Carstensen said.
