Sky Bird Travel & Tours Expands WINGS

Sky Bird Travel & Tours has announced the continued expansion to their WINGS Booking Engine featuring online travel insurance and two free webinars.

WINGS is a complete booking and management system that provides travel professionals powerful tools to help operate their business and become more profitable. The WINGS desktop provides a turnkey solution for agents to book airline tickets with over 90 global airline partners, hotels, car rentals, ground and tour services and now features travel insurance.

Arvin Shah, Chairman/CEO of Sky Bird Travel & Tours, explained that: “WINGS has quickly become the preferred choice for the travel professional community across North America and that’s because we listen to our travel agent partners.” Shah continued: “At the start, WINGS was primarily an airline booking resource, but our agents wanted more. So, we added a robust hotel booking feature, from there, they wanted cars and then transfers and tours, and we developed it all.”

He noted that: “I’ve made it clear to my team that as more and more agents utilize WINGS, we will continue to invest and expand the platform. That leads us to today, where agents can now purchase travel insurance in just a few easy steps.”

Shah observed that: “For years I’ve heard from travel advisors that they often face unfair price comparison with an OTA. There’s no way a click and book website can compare with the expertise of a professional travel agent and it was our job to step in and do something about it.”

He said that: “With WINGS, agents have the ability to operate as their own OTA, doing everything from booking services themselves to sharing the platform online with their customers. This leads to a streamlined booking experience for travellers and higher earnings for the agent. It’s a complete win-win — and registration is free.”
