AccesRail (IATA 9B), the Canadian-based rail ticket service provider, has signed with the Italian train company Trenitalia to make its tickets available on the sales platforms of all major airlines of the world.
To the travel agent, this means that they can now easily book air and rail segments in the airline primary screen display of all important GDSs. And to the customer this means that they can now travel with air and rail segments on the same itinerary.
AccesRail, a division of ACP Rail International, specializes in intermodal travel and GDS distribution, making it possible for its partner railways to interact with airlines in this way around the world. Air-rail intermodal solutions have been successfully implemented for numerous railways, including Renfe, Deutsche Bahn (DB), Norwegian State Railways (NSB), Swedish Railways (SJ), East Japan Railways, JR Kyushu, Dutch and Belgium Railways (NS/SNCB) and Thalys.
In 2000, the UK Association of Train Operating Companies (ATOC), which brings together all of Britain's national rail train companies, appointed ACP Rail to be the official distributor for BritRail and ACP Rail continues to do so. www.accesrail.com
