Ukraine International Airlines has become the latest carrier to sign-up to Amadeus Airline Ancillary Services, which enables airlines to increase revenues by selling their ancillary services, such as meals and bags, through the travel agency channel.
Travellers will enjoy greater flexibility to customise their travel experience by selecting extra services for their flight, while Amadeus-connected travel agents benefit from being able to serve their customers’ needs within an efficient working environment.
“We are pleased to support Ukraine International Airlines’ merchandising strategy by increasing the exposure and sales opportunities of the airline’s ancillary services through the world’s largest and most diverse travel community.
“Ukraine International Airlines now has the tools to maximise sales in our distribution channel and partner with travel agents by offering services that add value to the traveller’s journey,” said Gianni Pisanello, strategic marketing director, Airline Distribution at Amadeus.
Ukraine International Airlines is the 106th airline to sign-up to Amadeus Airline Ancillary Services, with 75 airlines already fully implemented and currently selling their ancillaries.
Deployed worldwide, including all IATA BSP markets, Amadeus’ industry leading solution is delivering real results for airlines, travel agents and travellers, with a 100 per cent increase in ancillaries sold during 2015.
