Accurate seat data and cabin class will: - 

Boost your traffic volumes

  • Through our schedule distribution service, you can ensure your seat information hits the marketplace informing potential bookers instantly 
  • While travel shopping, customers want to view and compare a wide range of travel content. This is not only related to flights, but also ancillaries like seat selection, cabin class, extra bags, in-flight meals, and so on. 
  • OTA and metasearch sites have their own algorithm and they penalize search findings if content hasn’t been updated for a while, so schedule changes need sent to the marketplace instantly to avoid being put at a disadvantage 
  • Simplifying the searching and shopping process is critical in boosting conversions and hitting the ‘search sweet spot’—a wide range of accurate content, delivered quickly will increase conversion and reduce the window between shopping and booking
