More and more Leisure Travel tour operators are booking directly via the Peakwork connection to the Lufthansa Group airlines’ Direct NDC API. Lufthansa Holidays, Eurowings Holidays, SWISS Holidays, HLX and other tour operators operated by holidays.ch AG now book directly via Peakwork.
DUSSELFDORF – More and more tour operators are using Peakwork technology for direct flight bookings with the Lufthansa Group. Leisure Travel booking volumes via the Lufthansa Group airlines’ Direct NDC API have increased dramatically in recent months. Using the Lufthansa Group airlines’ Direct NDC API, partners can access exclusive offers, including the NDC Smart Offer.
Peakwork uses Lufthansa Group airlines’ Direct NDC API for flight bookings from the entire Lufthansa Group, including the leisure travel fares of Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Lufthansa, SWISS and Eurowings Discover. These can be booked directly in the system. Leisure travel sales and dynamic packaging by tour operators will benefit from NDC advantages. All Lufthansa Group offers can be booked directly via Peakwork cache connectivity or via live connection. This offers greater flexibility in flight selection, and significantly increases the ability to adapt offers based on market demand and the ability to offer additional services.
Leading tour operators in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the Czech Republic and Italy already use the direct booking connection via Peakwork. In addition, holidays.ch AG has recently switched to Peakwork with further tour operator brands: "We have switched the bookings for Lufthansa Holidays, Eurowings Holidays, SWISS Holidays, HLX and other tour operator brands to Peakwork technology. This is the most efficient booking channel for us," explained Martin Meux, Managing Director holidays.ch AG.
"With our Lufthansa Group airlines Direct NDC API, we support the booking of our services at the highest technical level and with maximum flexibility for our partners," added Johannes Walter, Head of Channel Partners at Lufthansa Group airlines. "In the leisure travel sector, Peakwork is a long-standing and important partner with whom we share the common goal of offering our guests a high-quality experience along the entire journey and creating additional customer value through advanced technology."
Christian Andersen, Director Flight at Peakwork, confirms: "More and more tour operators are converting their booking channels to Peakwork technology. Through our IATA Level 3 certification, our solutions are NDC-capable at a high level."
In the medium term, the Lufthansa Group's offers will also be available via the new travel agency booking tool, Peakwork SET, accessible at local travel agencies.
