Vail Resorts Inc. has announced the availability of airline bookings capabilities at www.snow.com
to complement the extensive land-booking services currently offered at the site.
has deployed its air-booking engine at the site, through which the resort group will offer its guests published and special negotiated airfares.
In October 2002 Vail announced the enhanced www.snow.com with its expanded capabilities for searching, selecting and purchasing accommodations, activities and other land-based travel components. The site’s improvements were made possible by a new booking engine developed in partnership with Datalex and Resort Technology Partners (RTP), representing a new generation of Internet distribution technologies for leisure travel enterprises.
Visitors to the site can purchase components individually or create their own dynamic packages from a wide variety of activities including skiing, golfing, fishing, mountain biking and more.
The combined fares display enables the traveller to search for air itineraries and to purchase from a broad range of discounted domestic fares that have been negotiated by Vail Resorts. Travellers also can compare these fares to regular published fares and select according to their preference. The Datalex solution checks fare rules and returns flight options for available seats, saving time and allowing the visitor to make a more informed choice.
