Travel Agent Appreciation

FLYGTA Takes Off With Big Plans

There’s lots going on at FLYGTA these days and it took the time recently to host the trade at an event in Toronto to let them in on all that’s happening.

To begin with, it’s inviting the Canadian travel community to explore the travel options that it has on offer for consumers and business travellers to destinations in Canada and internationally.

As a spring incentive, FLYGTA is offering agents a special promotion to book Private Charter Aircraft as well as provide benefits through agent rates on Air Taxi routes until June 30 for travel completed by Dec. 31, 2022.

These promotions are a bonus on top of regular agent commissions earned for booking FLYGTA flights. Flights can be booked on the FLYGTA website or through the contact sales centre.

For booking Private Charter Flights, FLYGTA will reward agents with a $250 Amazon Gift Card applicable to tailor made itineraries or instant book private jet charters on any routing. An electronic Amazon Gift Card will be awarded to the travel agent upon completion of the travel itinerary. Interested agents can use promo code “AGENTGIFT250” at time of booking.

For booking Air Taxi routes, FLYGTA is offering a 20% discount on scheduled flights between Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ), Niagara (YSN), Kingston (YGK) and Muskoka (YQA) for agents plus one travelling companion. A valid ACTA ID Card is required at time of check in. Interested agents can use promo code “AGENTRATE20” at time of booking

FLYGTA offers a selection of private charter flights available for instant booking on their website 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.

Tailor made itineraries for anywhere in North America are available online through a custom quote request or the sales centre.

In other news, FLYGTA Airlines has signed a strategic commercial agreement with Travelport and the new agreement follows another deal the carrier reached with SITA as FLYGTA continues to expand its capability to distribute its private jet and regular scheduled airfares and inventory to a global network of travel agency partners.

In the newly signed agreement with Travelport, FLYGTA Airlines will participate in Travelport’s next-generation platform, Travelport+ which will be the first ever private jet distribution through a Global Distribution System.

FLYGTA followed up on that deal with additional agreements with Amadeus and Sabre.

In further news, the ORCUS Travel System is a new offering for small airlines operating across North America. ORCUS, a proprietary hub for flight operations, scheduling, booking, maintenance, passenger services and cargo management is a cohesive all-encompassing solution for the air travel challenges faced by smaller airlines. The unique system built from the ground up has recreated the booking and operational procedures of a “big” airline without major investments in staff, product capability and distribution networks.

ORCUS highlights include distribution capability via the GDS channel (Sabre, Amadeus, Travelport) coupled with the ability to connect via NDC-API’, access to a internet booking engine (Search engine and meta search engine connections), Third Party Integrations (by: Web-service, API, Webhooks, Ticketing Counter/Call Center, Travel/Tour Agency & Corporate Booking tool) , a full suite of travel marketing capabilities (Loyalty program/ frequently flyers, Marketing automation, Affiliation marketing, Customer survey, Distribution) and departure control and passenger services (Check-in & Boarding, Online Check-in, Airport Kiosk, Advanced Passenger Information API integration & automatic customs submissions).
