Worldspan has removed technological borders with Worldspan Rapid Reprice Select, making the travel industry’s first combined itinerary shopping and ticket repricing solution available to airlines worldwide. (8/14/2007)
According to the travel technology provider, Rapid Reprice Select has the new and potent ability to shop and reprice international itineraries, regardless of the currency in which a ticket was originally issued, or in which currency the new ticket is to be issued.
Worldspan Rapid Reprice Select can be deployed across an airline’s enterprise to enable airline reservations and ticket agents, as well as online travel buyers at airline websites, to not only make changes to a ticketed itinerary, but also shop and retrieve up to five low-fare alternates and instantly complete a booking.
According to Sue Powers, Worldspan Chief Information Officer and Senior Vice President - Worldwide Product Solutions, non-airline travel distributors that use Worldspan XML Pro or Worldspan Data Interface Record (DIR) messaging solutions as an interface to the Worldspan GDS can also take advantage of Rapid Reprice Select´s new international capabilities.
Rapid Reprice Select, introduced to Worldspan customers in the US last year, eliminates the need for travel professionals and online buyers to conduct separate, shopping and repricing requests to find more than one alternate itinerary.
