Travel agents and consumers benefit by having access to the
inventory of one of the nations fastest growing and most popular airlines.
JetBlue benefits from the aggregation of qualified buyers using Travel
Console and the extremely low cost of distributing inventory via their
Internet site. 
“AgentWare has been successful in building a loyal user base
among travel agents throughout the United States, states Tim Claydon, VP of
Sales & Distribution for JetBlue.  “Working with AgentWare will allow us to
leverage the low-cost of distributing via a web site, while at the same time
getting our fares in front of a qualified group of buyers - it`s the best of
both worlds for us.”
“Our agreement with JetBlue is significant because AgentWare
will be providing yet another source of low-fares to our travel agent
customers and their clients,” states Les Ottolenghi, President and CEO of
AgentWare.  “Our customers have requested JetBlue fares since the inception
of Travel Console.  This agreement allows us to ensure that JetBlue
inventory is present and reliable for our travel agency and corporate
customers.”


AgentWare`s Travel Console is the leading web fare search
product in the travel industry.  Travel agents using Travel Console can
search more than 27 web fare sites for fares that are unavailable in their
traditional systems.  Without the information resident on the Internet,
agents are at a disadvantage to their web savvy business and leisure
customers.  Travel Console equips travel agents to regain the information
advantage over consumers and to better differentiate their service from
other travel agents.
