Abacus offers airfare system upgrade
Daily news, 21 Jul 2008: SINGAPORE – From July 20, Abacus-connected travel agents will have access to the most up-to-date airfare content available with an upgrade to Abacus SmartPrice, the major airfare pricing system from Abacus International.
The upgrade takes advantage of a new fares updating schedule from airline fare vendor ATPCO that includes three additional updates of airfare and rule data per day and an additional update late on Sunday. This follows a similar scheduling change late last year from Abacus’ other major airfare vendor, SITA.
Abacus SmartPrice is designed to seamlessly incorporate the new international subscription processing schedules provided by airline fare vendor partners. It delivers the lowest applicable fare as it searches both private and public tariffs that include net and published fares.
