Innovative Dutch carrier transavia.com recently launched a codeshare partnership with the national airline, KLM. Five transavia.com destinations in Italy and Spain were to be offered initially as part of through journeys, connecting at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport to the entire KLM network. The flights were to be made available for sale via all KL’s distribution channels.
Critical elements of the project were the introduction by transavia.com of an E-Ticket database, so that E-Tickets issued via carriers in the Skyteam alliance could be accepted on transavia.com flights, and ensuring that messages flowed seamlessly between the reservation and operational systems used by both carriers.
PROLOGIS were proud to provide business consultancy support throughout the project, in key areas such as testing of the new E-Ticketing database, and related codeshare reservation and DCS messages; we also assisted with preparing relevant training materials and business processes for both the commercial and finance teams.
