Dolphin Dynamics has appointed TIAS Technology as distributor for FlightScanner in Australia.
The Australian market was one of the first markets to benefit from the low cost airline phenomenon when it began and is now dominated by low cost carriers, such as Virgin Blue and Jetstar. This makes Australia, and the Asia Pacific region generally, a significant market for flight search engines and means that FlightScanner is an ideal tool for travel agents.
Commenting on the agreement Roberto Da Re, Dolphin Dynamics President, said, “This announcement follows on from our previous distribution deals in Spain and Italy, as well as our agreement with Sabre. The combination of Dolphin’s ground breaking technology with the local knowledge and marketing expertise of our partners has proven to be a very successful approach that we plan to emulate in other countries going forward.”
Da Re added, “We are delighted to be collaborating with TIAS especially because of their reach into the Australian market and their vast experience of marketing reservations systems.”
TIAS will promote the full range of FlightScanner products, including the travel agent web-based tool and booking engine technology, as well as providing first line customer support.
Dolphin Dynamics plans to continue applying this model to other markets and is already in discussions with distributors in several more countries.
