SkyLink believes it has a particularly “app(s)ropriate” way to serve travel agents.
Company COO Yuvraj Datta told a Toronto roadshow last night (April 30) that two new apps – Trips and Trip Pay – are now available for agents, with both linked with the company’s TripPro platform.
SkyLink says TripPro offers “the lowest priced international airfares,” “complex and unique itineraries,” all fare classes and is easy for agents to use.
Datta told the gathering “mobile friendly” Trip Pay and Trips are “how the future is going to be” and that users will find “each and every detail at their fingertips… This is an exceptionally new tool.”
He said users will have the “right tool” to expand their bases.
Datta used the evening to praise both travel agents and the airlines SkyLink offers, with a large number of airline representatives being on hand for the event.
Datta told agents that they bring “fun and happiness” into people’s lives through their work, while “airlines work tirelessly to serve our mutual customers.”
Spencer Sorensen of WestJet in turn noted his airline’s rapid growth from being a carrier that initially served a handful of Western cities to one that has built up an international network.
Sorensen also welcomed WestJet’s decision to add the Dreamliner to its fleet.
Ayhan Ugur of Turkish Airlines’ Toronto office reported that his carrier serves 124 countries and over 300 destinations and has the youngest fleet of any European airline.
The carrier has six weekly Toronto-Istanbul flights, offering the likes of business class flat seats and “flying chefs.”
Ugur said Istanbul is in a prime location for those wanting to continue beyond the city, adding Turkish Airlines serves 80 destinations that are within three hours from Turkey’s largest city.
