Travelport has announced travel agencies in the UK, Ireland and the Nordics can now earn commission on Heathrow Express tickets booked through Travelport Smartpoint.
The announcement follows the launch earlier this year of Travelport’s industry-first solution, offering airport express services to travel agencies through a plugin on its Travel Commerce Platform.
The plugin, which is accessible via the award-winning point of sale solution, Travelport Smartpoint, was first adopted by Heathrow Express and offers user friendly and seamless connectivity for agents booking airport express services, which operate frequent and fast rail services between an airport and local city.
In addition, the plugin enables multiple airport express service providers connectivity through a single application and allows on account payment by applying directly to Heathrow Express.
Electronic ticketing is included where available, while PNR data is automatically integrated.
Fraser Brown, Heathrow Express director, said: “Travelport’s airport express system has been helping us achieve our goal of seamless travel.
“As part of this, we are pleased that travel agency customers can maximise revenues via Travelport Smartpoint.”
