SCOOT’S fare content is now available via technology company Aeronology, after it became the low-cost airline’s first New Distribution Capability (NDC) aggregator.
This means travel advisors who use the Aeronology platform via Express Tickets in Australia or New Zealand can now book and ticket off the same screen as their Global Distribution System (GDS) through Direct Connect.
Agents will have access to Scoot flights across its 56 active destinations at Scoot’s web prices – in some cases about $200 less than GDS fares – and down to last seat availability, as well as the ability to add their own mark up and logo on the Scoot flight itinerary.
The addition of a low-cost carrier like Scoot to Aeronology’s growing portfolio of GDS and NDC airlines demonstrates the company’s commitment to creating a top tier travel booking engine.
“Aeronology is extremely proud of its technology and distribution relationship with Scoot,” said Aeronology CEO, Russell Carstensen.
“It is critical that we continue to provide our customers and travel advisors with the ability to sell Scoot flights off our platform and be able to bundle packages together in key leisure markets as the travel market evolves, rebuilds, and expands.”
He also highlighted that it is now much easier for travel advisors to charge a service fee.
“We are excited to partner with Aeronology to develop Scoot’s NDC capability and provide our customers with a more personalised travel booking experience,” Scoot CEO Calvin Chan said.
