Booking air travel is getting a whole lot easier for travelers using the TripSource® platform. The global travel management company announced it is expanding the platform booking capabilities beyond hotel. Soon, corporate clients will have the ability to enable travelers to shop and book flights directly in TripSource as well. The platform provides access from any connected device. This increase in traveler convenience closely follows BCD’s recent announcement that TripSource is adding Alexa-enabled voice activation.
How it works
With access to multiple air channels, including low-cost carriers, TripSource will provide business travelers with more flight choices than ever before. Now in addition to managing their entire trip via the TripSource app or website, travelers will able be able to book flights, check baggage fees and review seat maps, in-flight meals and Wi-Fi options. Companies can customize traveler air choices to fit their travel and approval policies.
“Business travelers, like everyone else, are looking for ways to simplify their tasks,” said Yannis Karmis, BCD’s senior vice president of Product Planning & Development. “We want to make it as easy and pleasant to book the company’s preferred air and hotel content as it is to buy a mobile charger on Amazon Prime.”
In the coming months, BCD Travel will add air booking to the widely successful hotel booking capabilities launched two years ago. Ground, rail and car booking will soon follow. The new functionality will roll out first to clients in Belgium, France, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States, with additional markets to follow.
