Corporate passengers and travel bookers looking for easy, one-step transactions will be pleased to learn that easyJet is making life easier as it targets the business travel market. A new inclusive fare, combining various options, has been introduced for the GDS (global distribution system) and other booking alternatives connected to the easyJet API (advanced passenger information) and is expected to help the airline gain a larger slice of the corporate travel market.
This move means that corporates and travel management companies will have a choice of products.
Standard Fares can be booked for those passengers wanting to only pay for the services they want and available to book either through the GDS or the airline’s web site. Inclusive Fares offer convenience and value for money says the carrier. The combined fare, which includes a 20kg hold bag, seat selection in the lowest priced band and credit card payment, is cheaper than purchasing these products separately. These are only available through the GDS and easyJet’s API partners.
Flexi Fares provide flexibility and include 1 x 20kg hold luggage, upfront seat selection, Speedy Boarding, fast track security (at selected airports), free credit card payment and unlimited free date changes in a four-week window. These are available on all booking channels. www.easyjet.com
