Solar Computing Systems, a leading provider of information management and electronic distribution solutions for the travel industry, has announced another contract for the LiveLinx/SolarNet fare distribution.
GTT Travel offers both international and domestic net fares that will now
be available to travel agents throughout the United States via LiveLinx and
the SolarNet interface to the major GDS/CRS (Global Distribution
System/Computerized Reservation System) networks.
Bob Wilson Director of
Account Development at SCS says, “The addition of GTT Travel increases our
domestic fare content to US travel agents. Now with both international and
domestic US fares available on-line, SolarNet truly becomes a single source
for US travel agents looking for access to alternative and innovative airfare
pricing opportunities. In today`s marketplace, with the additional airline
commission cuts recently announced, US travel agents are looking to gain
access to net fares which enable them to apply their own margin of profit.
Again, SCS provides a productivity and profitability solution that benefits
both vendor and travel agent”.
Based in Dallas, Texas, GTT Travel has been in business since 1984 and is recognized as one of the top airfare ticket consolidators in the US
specializing in low net airfares to both US and international destinations.
GTT Travel markets exclusively to travel agents providing a wide range of
pricing options that can significantly improve an agent`s bottom line. Mark
Nelson Marketing Director at GTT Travel said, “We have monitored the growth in
SolarNet usage by travel agents and now look forward to participating in the
SolarNet program. We not only expect to reduce our costs associated with
handling telephone inquiries, but expect to gain market share by making our
product offering available to travel agents across the United States”.
