Direct Travel Gets A Lift From FareNexus

Direct Travel has announced that its growing technology partnership with FareNexus looks to expand on the implementation of Direct Lift, powered by nexusWind, a centralized booking solution provider.

Gerard Bellino, EVP Leisure for Direct Travel, said that: “The nexusWind platform exceeds all our requirements that we outlined for our leisure agent booking suite.”

Bellino continued: “We needed a platform that had flexibility due to the changes occurring in air travel and nexusWind provides us with that flexibility.”

Direct Lift is a comprehensive solution that accommodates both NDC and GDS content with airline commission (nexusCMT) on one screen so that travel advisors can be assured that they are getting the best deals for their customers.

The intuitive interface allows any advisor who is not trained in the GDS to book travel for their customers.

FareNexus CEO, Ravi Kumar said: “We are very pleased with our relationship with Direct Travel and the fact that they have selected us to be a true ‘technology’ partner for them.”

Kumar noted that: “The addition of nexusWind to the suite of solutions Direct Travel is utilizing from Farenexus is a continuation of this growing partnership.”

Direct Travel’s chief technology officer, Darryl Hoover observed that: “Our partnership with FareNexus has positioned us to continue to enhance our productivity tools for our front-line travel advisors and clients.”

Hoover added: “Their extensive knowledge of the travel ecosystem means we can be both innovative and efficient as we develop enterprise solutions collaboratively.”
