To help travellers during the COVID-19 crisis, GlobeAir will be offering flights under the IATA airline code “W2” on more than 550,000 travel providers worldwide including Skyscanner, Expedia and Opodo.
“It was terrible to see the impact COVID-19 is having on our industry and airlines around the world. We are therefore extremely pleased to work with GlobeAir on this pioneering project and to be able to sell their flights through all leading GDS providers. The innovation that GlobeAir has brought so far is the same innovation that enabled us to develop this unique GDS distribution functionality. We look forward to a long-lasting partnership.” Lasse Meilsoe, Group CEO
Despite the travel bans imposed in many countries around the world, it is still possible to get safely from A to B. Private jet flights are amongst the most reliable ways to get to one’s destination. With specially designated terminals, fewer crowds, increased security procedures and full online check-in, business aviation puts biosecurity first, ensuring the highest safety standards at all times. In days when flying commercial exposes passengers to over 700 touchpoints, private jet flights can reduce that number to 20, and thus lower the probability of infection for travellers by 97%.
Peer Winter, VP Business Development at WorldTicket adds: “It is great to be part of this project in which both partners are setting new standards in the industry, despite the unforeseen challenges of a global pandemic. WorldTicket and GlobeAir have created a unique sales opportunity for travel agents and travellers. They will now have easy access to business charter flights directly in the GDS and do not have to interrupt or change their daily processes.”
