Online Regional Travel Group has secured a New Distribution Capability deal with British Airways and sister airline Iberia to help save surcharge fees.

Fares will be delivered via an NDC arrangement, where the travel group will avoid a surcharge fee of £8 per fare component for all bookings from this month.

Based in the Isle of Man, Guernsey and Jersey, ORTG’s business travel and leisure clients will benefit from the waived surcharges.

The company run a online and offline brands including Richmond Travel and Mann Link Travel in the Isle of Man, Wayfarers Travel in Guernsey and Bellingham Travel in Jersey.

CEO Simon Goddard said: “Our relationship with British Airways and Iberia is one of strategic importance that will bring long term benefits to both our business travel and leisure clients.

“This agreement will help to drive cost-effective offers and richer content for our joint customers.”

Other TMCs, such as American Express Global Business Travel, have struck similar deals over the controversial surcharge, that was recently dismissed as ‘not fit for purpose’ by Travelport.
