Consolidator Faremine adds ‘Fare Families’ flight-price function


Faremine has introduced a ‘Fare Families’ concept and upgraded its system to offer airline ancillaries. Its “groundbreaking” Fare


Families search allows agents to compare prices in economy with or without packaged extras for 45 airlines. The consolidator says this offers upselling opportunities and gives agents more control. It has also made its system com-


patible to sell flights from New Dis- tribution Capability-ready airlines. Commercial director Phil


Pritchard said: “We are not the first to atempt to display fare families and ancillaries, but we are 100% confident our technology is the best in the industry and surpasses any other system out there. “Our groundbreaking design


uses each airline’s own terminology and branding, for example, Virgin Atlantic’s ‘Light’, ‘Classic’ and ‘Delight’ options, alongside the product description each airline has loaded into GDSs.” faremine.com
