British Airways launches fare families on shorthaul and domestic routes

Published on: Sep 05 2017 by Stuart Oxby

Earlier this year Amadeus announced that British Airways has launched fare families on its Great Britain to United States routes. Now we are pleased to announce the extension of British Airways fare families on all shorthaul and domestic markets for UK and EU originating traffic.

British Airways fare families
Airline fare families in Amadeus allow the packaging of booking classes, fares and services into branded products. Each product is associated to a name and description that reflects its attributes.

To this end, British Airways has now launched fare families on its shorthaul and domestic routes and there are currently 5 fare families available:

‘Basic’ fares are private fares and require an Account Code to access.

What does this mean for you as the Travel Agent?
The introduction of fare families by British Airways allows travel agencies to further personalise the traveller experience. Travel agents have easy access to transparent and clear air content, so are able to see the services included in different fare families, the optional charged services, the fare conditions at the time of pricing and the upsell fare families’ options.

British Airways fare families on Amadeus help travel agents to make informed decisions for their customers, offer better customer service and create additional revenue opportunities through your own mark ups and service fees for you as travel agents when upselling.
