A specialist in software for tour operators, WinTourS is expanding its flight offering for the growing market segment of culture and adventure travel providers
Darmstadt / Neuried – Munich, 12 September 2018
Effective immediately, users of WinTourS software can now package their tour offerings with an extensive range of airline flight content. The WinTourS solution finds and books the flights via the Mercado Server from InteRES, which bundles flight content from many different sources ranging from GDS and NDC API to Direct Connects – and makes it all available in a single API.
The implementation and maintenance of the constantly changing interfaces of connected airlines and reservation systems is handled completely by InteRES, so WinTourS faces no additional technical burden. This means also that InteRES implements the tailored business logic necessary for each airline interface, as well as the search for and booking of supplementary services.
WinTourS is continuing to expand its tour operator solution as a one-stop-shop for dynamic packaging, and this move makes it much easier for its clients to find suitable flights. Specialist tour operators benefit from the expanded flight offering and can also integrate their existing GDS contracts.
Markus Schreiber, CEO of WinTourS AG says: “From discussions with our customers, the leading culture and adventure tour operators, it’s clear that airline industry developments in this era of NDC and Direct Connect are currently a major issue. With our connection to the Mercado Server, we now offer access to a widened range of flight content, for example GDS, the Lufthansa Group’s NDC API and Eurowings in Direct Connect. With InteRES as our partner, our flight offerings are now very well positioned for the future!”
Anke Hsu, Customer Experience Officer at InteRES adds: “We’re delighted to have won WinTourS as a new customer. In collaborating with the IT experts for specialized and adventure tour providers, we see growth potential for everyone. Particularly for tour operators, NDC offers the possibility to use tailored flight products as a point of differentiation from the competition.”
