Aerticket offers exclusive LATAM Airlines fares thanks to its newest NDC connection on its Cockpit internet booking engine, which helps travel agents access exclusive fares.
Global airline ticket wholesaler Aerticket has added LATAM to its Cockpit platform so agents can access fares without additional GDS surcharges.
Cockpit displays content from both new distribution capability (NDC) and GDS side by side, enhancing the booking process.
Aerticket also helps travel agents and tour operators source the most competitive flight prices on the market, thanks to the development of new, innovative technology.
How it works
With Aerticket’s Cockpit internet booking engine, agents can use the most up-to-date flight booking technologies, all in one place.
NDC allows airlines to create and distribute the most relevant offers to a specific customer regardless of the distribution channel. And now, Aerticket’s Cockpit platform uses NDC fares from LATAM, for agents to book fares without the GDS surcharge and, more importantly, the exclusive fares.
By using Cockpit, agents can not only view content from both NDC and GDS platforms alongside each other, but also access daily tariff updates.
By booking LATAM NDC content through Cockpit instead of the GDS, agents can save an average of £36 per booking. Cockpit also enables agents to review the current condition and offer re-bookings and cancellations, and benefit from exclusive promotional fares.
Travel agents who use Cockpit can be sure that they’re offering the newest, most competitive flight ticket prices to their clients.
Plus, the process of finding, booking and issuing the best tickets has never been easier. With all data conveniently located in one place, agents also have the ability to book ancillaries, such as baggage and seats directly.
The latest information is guaranteed, too – rates are constantly updated, and the newest tariff rules and regulations are all hosted in one place.
End consumers can also make use of the MyCockpit app, which helps them stay up to date with their flight routes, time changes and terminal updates. And the best bit is if the clients book seats, baggage or any ancillaries through the app, the agent will earn extra commission as the original seller of the flight.
As a large independent wholesaler of airline tickets, Aerticket issues about seven million tickets a year, and has been operating for over 35 years.
