Swiss International Air Lines Ltd., (SWISS) has released a new online group booking tool for travel agents in Canada called “SWISS Groups” that will make booking groups of 10 persons or more easier and more manageable.
With this new tool, qualified IATA and non-IATA travel agents who register on the SWISS website will be able to obtain real-time availability, immediate pricing, and ticketing conditions to better service customers.
“SWISS Groups” allows optional bookings up to four days before departure for groups of 10-98 persons. Bookings requiring a shorter time frame must be requested through the agency’s GDS, and the SWISS Group Desk.
Both SWISS Business and SWISS Economy can be booked using the tool. For SWISS First requests, agents must first contact the SWISS Group desk using the online SWISS Groups “messenger function.” With usage of the tool, agents can find attractive offers, confirm an optional booking, and view the contract. SWISS Groups will display all flight schedule-related information in local time. Agents can accept the contract online and gain immediate access to the PNR in their preferred GDS for further fulfilment (e.g. names and ticketing).
