– Expanding functionality on HV’s new inventory and distribution system

For Transavia – an independent part of the Air France / KLM group – the integration of Basiq Air in 2005 marked the start of its low-cost section and resulted in a change of its business model including the merging of its charter and scheduled services under Part of this strategy was the implementation of web-based bookings of ancillary products such as hotel rooms, rental cars, travel insurance and event tickets.
In essence, everything pointed to the adoption of an all-in-one reservation and distribution system, which ended up being New Skies® by Navitaire.
