VisitBritain has unveiled an online service to help international visitors compare the price of flights to British airports. The service will be officially launched at this year’s World Travel Market.
The new flights engine on www.visitbritain.com makes it even easier for potential visitors to plan their trip and drives bookings to individual airline websites. At present 24 airlines are participating in the service including British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and bmi and, through agreements with consolidators such as Opodo and Orbitz, it will provide details of flights from over 500 airlines.
Tom Wright, chief executive of VisitBritain, said: “Our new flights engine provides an even more comprehensive information service on visitbritain.com for people planning to travel to Britain. Our customers can now save time by coming to a single, trusted and impartial organisation to find a range of flights options and search for the best offers available.”
