Making further strides in the industry-wide flight content revolution, global travel software specialist Peakwork has partnered flight content aggregator Travelfusion.
Travelfusion is a flight content aggregator and innovator of direct connect distribution solutions. Headquartered in London with offices in Shanghai and Thessaloniki, Travelfusion aggregates over 330 LCCs from around the world and 25 NDC full-service carriers.
Peakwork and Travelfusion have implemented technical connectivity that allows Peakwork customers to source flight content from Travelfusion’s portfolio.
Travelfusion creates flight offers in Peakwork’s EDF data format where flight bookings are directly channelled from the Peakwork network to Travelfusion’s booking interfaces.
Jonathan Penn, senior vice president sales at Travelfusion, commented: “Peakwork customers… now have access to shop, book and manage more than 330 LCCs and more than 25 NDC full-service carriers from around the world. Our rich data includes support for all ancillaries, branded fares, post booking and special fares to enhance the tour operators’ competitive offerings.”
Christian Andersen, director flight at Peakwork, added: “Travelfusion contributes an immense flight portfolio to the Peakwork network. The connectivity of both technology partners brings fast and flexible flight sourcing for all partners in the Player Hub Network.”
Travelfusion benefits from the quickly expanding Player Hub Network as a new distribution platform. More than 100 tour operator brands, about 50 airlines and flight offer providers as well as 45 accommodation providers now sell their offers in the network and source additional services.
Global Internet companies and metasearchers also connect APIs to receive offers for leisure travel sales. Peakwork technology connects travel providers such as TUI, Thomas Cook and Lufthansa, to digital global players including Google, Facebook, Kayak and Trivago.
