S7 Airlines presents a new booking platform
OpenJaw and ITA Software by Google technologies make the process of air ticket purchase for S7 Airlines own flights and for the flights of partner airlines under code-share and prorate agreements even more convenient. In addition to the purchase of air tickets for one way or round trip flights by choosing from one of the options offered by the system now passengers can make a more complicated route which includes several flights.
Search results are displayed in a more convenient way which enables passengers to get all necessary information on one page: flight duration, distance, aircraft type, in-flight-food type, free baggage allowance, the number of miles that S7 Priority members can get for this flight.
Additionally in search results a passenger will immediately see available fare classes in respect of each flight, and minimum fares available for this flight within the next seven days.
The new platform gives passengers the opportunity to choose offers of several providers and book everything necessary for the trip. Together with the air ticket you can purchase additional products, e.g. hotel, car rent, insurance, transfer.
S7 Priority members will soon have the opportunity to purchase an air ticket on the website and pay for it with miles from their own account. In order to do this during the search they will be requested to specify the corresponding way of payment and the system will show the ticket cost in miles.
“Thanks to Google and OpenJaw technologies implementation the new S7 Airlines booking platform corresponds to the needs of our clients. With the OpenJaw platform we could make the next step in our strategy — to become the leaders among the Russian universal resources on the market of travel products and services sale”, Dmitry Chuyko, E-Commerce Director, noted.
“We are glad to help S7 Airlines to offer its passengers a more quick and reliable way of air ticket and travel product purchase”, Nicola Simionato, EMEA and APAC Director General, noted.
“From the very beginning S7 Airlines wished to withdraw from the ordinary airline model and become the tourist retail leader. We are glad that the company has chosen to use the OpenJaw platform for its solutions”, Kieron Branagan, OpenJaw Director General, said.
The new booking platform is available at www.s7.ru.
