- Preferential accommodation rates through relationships with hotel groups
Travel is as much about moving information as it is about moving people. Success depends on being able to access and control information and get it to clients fast in a form that’s easy to use and understand.
The travel industry continues to innovate with carriers, global distribution systems (GDS), consolidators and online providers all vying to control pricing or take advantage of the variations in the market.
The Wings way is to continue to invest in technology to bring together content from multiple systems to guarantee that our clients always benefit from the widest selection of global and local airfare, hotel reservation and car hire deals.
NDC – which stands for new distribution capability – is an emerging standard for the way the travel industry shares data. It promises to make it easier for airlines to offer additional services during the booking process.
NDC will make an important difference behind the scenes, making it easier to integrate the data and processes that affect your travel experience. But not all content will be available through NDC for the foreseeable future. That’s why at Wings we have been adapting our technology to harvest content from multiple systems, including NDC.
Content is king
Special fares and exclusive rates – We scour every corner of the market and every system for the best deals for special fares and exclusive rates. Wings has also negotiated private nett fare agreements on behalf of its clients with airlines that give you access to rates that aren’t available anywhere else.
Route deals – Big companies sometimes negotiate their own deals on high-traffic routes, but it can still pay to benchmark these against the best available deals in each market.
Exclusive offshore and marine fares – Wings has negotiated special rates for clients in this sector, helping to keep costs at a minimum while delivering exceptional logistics management.
Managed hotel programme – We work with you to achieve your objectives for hotel expenditure based on your business needs. Our global hotel service ensures the best rates, efficient booking, compliance with your travel policies, traveller satisfaction and duty of care. The service includes analysis of your current hotel programme and continuous review against quality and value-for-money criteria.
