FLYGTA has announced the global rollout with GDS partners Travelport and Amadeus. Partner integration is scheduled in two stages with Travelport’s Apollo and Galileo cores coming online today, and with Amadeus set for June 15.
This marks the first time that an airline has been able to successfully distribute whole booked private jets and charter aircraft through a global distribution network, saying goodbye to the complexities travel agents and consumers faced when booking through email and custom quote requests.
The first GDS flights are expected to commence with 20-plus destinations from Toronto to Canadian, American and Caribbean destinations with Montreal (YUL), and other departure points to be scheduled for July.
As an incentive for booking through Travelport and Amadeus, FLYGTA is offering agents a special promotion to book Private Charter Aircraft as well as provide benefits through agent rates. These promotions are available until June 30 and are a bonus on top of regular agent commissions earned for booking FLYGTA flights.
FLYGTA offers a selection of private charter flights available for instant booking from Toronto’s Pearson (YYZ) and Billy Bishop Airports (YTZ) to a select number of Canadian, US and Caribbean destinations and scheduled air taxi flights from Billy Bishop Airport (YTZ) to Niagara (YCM) Kingston (YGK) and Muskoka (YQA).
Instant book Private Charter destinations from Pearson Airport (YYZ), include Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach, Naples, Sarasota, Fort Myers, Bahamas, and Turks & Caicos.
Instant book Private Charter destinations from Billy Bishop Airport (YTZ), include Ottawa, Quebec City, New York (Teterboro, NJ), the Hamptons (Suffolk County), Chicago, and Nashville.
Additional routes will be available through Travelport today and Amadeus later in June. Custom quote requests may be made through flygta.com for tailor-made private jet charter itineraries not currently available through GDS.
