Newsletter #5 (06.07.2021)

To further support you with your Low-Cost sales, we have been working hard to add additional content and also enrich the features of our engine. Therefore we’re happy to communicate the below news to you:

New and Re-integrated carriers:

New features:

  • New API version 8.22 – “Flex Ticket Option
    We are happy to announce that we have released a change on the API which will optionally require you to upgrade from version 8.21 to version 8.22 to be able to make use of this feature. There will be no additional certification required as it only adds the “Flex Ticket Option“.

    • Documentation can be found in our API Specification (Section 1.3.7).
    • It delivers fares with a flexible ticketing option in the same manner as for e.g. “Extra Baggage“.
    • The feature can be tested on Transavia (HV) in our TEST Environment
  • Transavia – first carrier enabled for “Flex Ticket Option”
    More and more travelers are searching for flexible tickets only. Logically, several carriers introduced flexible fares, where changes and rebookings are possible. Transavia will be the first carrier enabled for this new feature, but soon others to follow.
  • Vueling (VY) / FlyLevel (IB):
    • Additional content from FlyLevel added
      FlyLevel’s long-haul flights from BCN Hub via Vueling can be booked via Pyton Flight Portal.

We hope this was interesting for you and is going to add value to your future Low-Cost Carrier Sales. If there are questions or suggestions, we are more than happy to assist you in any possible way.

Thank you and take good care
