Aer Lingus Changes Commission Policy

28th Jun 2002

Aer Lingus announced today that it will migrate to the zero based commission structure adopted by other carriers over the past few months.

The zero commission applies to all tickets, Miscellaneous Charge Orders (MCOs), Prepaid Ticket Advices (PTA`s) and bookings made via the internet effective July 1, 2002.

“Aer Lingus is committed to a strategy of reducing airfares as we reduce our costs. This strategy has resulted in our lead in Summer fares being $80 lower this year than last year. To accomplish this we must adjust our distribution costs as others have in the industry”, said Jack Foley, Executive Vice President North America. “We will continue to expand our incentive and productivity programs with travel agents that support our strategy of offering the public lower fares and Irish service.”
