WestJet reports that iTravel2000 has signed a letter of intent to use the WestJet Direct API connection provided by Farelogix to book and ticket air travel. In addition, itravel2000 will become a WestJet- certified conforming channel by the spring of 2014, ensuring access to WestJet’s best fares and ancillary products.
WestJet is excited to see travel-trade partners like itravel2000 working to provide guests with the best available content we have to offer, including our newly introduced fare options and ensuing availability of choice for travellers,” said Bob Cummings, WestJet’s executive vice-president, Sales, Marketing and Guest Experience. “As a company we are very excited about working with visionaries like itravel2000 who realize that merchandising is important to guests, agencies and the airlines.”
Rose Cosentino, itravel2000’s vice-president of Sales and Product, commented, “We are pleased about leveraging the WestJet Direct API to ensure itravel2000 will have the best content and pricing available to consumers. We are also very pleased to ensure itravel2000 will not be affected by WestJet’s Jan. 26, 2014, termination from participation in the Sabre Global Distribution System as we continue providing great prices, products, and service to the Canadian public.”
