Malev boosts e-ticket partners

The number of Malev routes accessible with electronic tickets is on the increase. To date, Malev has signed interline agreements with 17 airlines allowing both printed and e-tickets on each other’s routes. The purpose of setting up interline agreements is to guarantee that airlines mutually accept each other’s tickets for flights.

A report by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) shows that the Hungarian airline is increasing the number of its e-ticket interline partners at a considerable rate compared to its other members. A year ago Malev began building this network, within which selected airlines can issue e-tickets for each other’s routes.

oneworld airlines enjoy priority when it comes to setting up contracts. Malev is shortly to join this aviation alliance in which, uniquely, the electronic systems of all the member airlines are capable of accepting and processing the e-tickets of the other members. Thus, passengers can now travel around the world with an e-ticket issued by Malev but transferring to flights of American Airlines, Qantas, Cathay Pacific and British Airways. Malev’s accession to oneworld will allow the airline’s customers to fly to over 600 cities in 134 countries with an e-ticket. Of course, the e-ticket also means efficient and easy administration when it comes to buying and using the air ticket.
