ChoiceAir, the innovative air travel program that Azamara Club Cruises, Celebrity Cruises and Royal Caribbean International launched earlier this year, is now set to provide even more benefits to cruisers, with yesterday’s introduction of “ChoiceAir Specials”.
Since August, the three cruise lines’ travel agent partners and guests have had access to highly competitive airfares, along with full control of their air arrangements through ChoiceAir. Beginning today, with the launch of ChoiceAir Specials, the three cruise lines are offering even more value on certain sailings when accompanied with ChoiceAir arrangements.
“ChoiceAir Specials provide dollars-off savings that make our cruise vacations an even more compelling value,” said Doug Santoni, senior vice president of Revenue Management, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. “Cruisers appreciate that ChoiceAir provides value and choice, but many don’t realize that ChoiceAir also includes a bonus in the form of travel support before, during and after their trip. It’s more than just helping our guests find great flights at great prices and choose the flight options that work best for them. ChoiceAir guests have peace of mind, knowing that the ChoiceAir team is watching out for them on the way to and from their cruise vacation, offering support in the event of disruptions to airline schedules that might otherwise jeopardize their cruise vacation.”
When guests book ChoiceAir with their cruise, they can be more confident in their vacation decision and the value they are receiving, and this should result in fewer guest cancellations and changes. This translates into the ultimate in value and selection for guests, while helping travel agents to secure more business. With the addition of ChoiceAir Specials, travel partners now have another tool to assist in making the sale, upgrading the sale, and reaching out to new clients.
ChoiceAir provides the three cruise lines’ guests with the ability to select flights from all published airline schedules, taking advantage of some of the most competitive fares, as well as exclusive promotions available only through Azamara Club Cruises, Celebrity Cruises, Royal Caribbean International and their travel agent partners. Additionally, ChoiceAir offers the convenience of single-phone-call service and day-of-travel support in the event of airline schedule disruptions. ChoiceAir Specials provide an additional discount off the price of the cruise vacation on certain sailings when accompanied with air purchased through the three cruise lines’ ChoiceAir program.
Guests can purchase ChoiceAir Specials through a travel agent, directly from Azamara Club Cruises, Celebrity Cruises and Royal Caribbean International contact centers, and online at each of the cruise lines’ secure ChoiceAir websites:
