Canadian leisure carrier Sunwing Airlines has signed an interline agreement with Hahn Air, adding to the latter’s ticketing network of over 350 air, rail and shuttle partners.
Toronto-based Sunwing was founded 13 years ago and has a current fleet of over 40 Boeing 737-800 and B737 MAX 8 aircraft. It flies from 33 airports across Canada and five in the United States to over 45 destinations across the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America and Florida.
Ticketing on Hahn Air’s HR-169 document can be booked in Abacus, Amadeus, Apollo, Galileo, Infini, Sabre, Topas and Worldspan GDSs under its own code and issued on its insolvency-safe ticket worldwide.
Andrew Dawson, president of tour operations for the carrier, said the agreement with Hahn Air means it can “offer our wide range of flights to the sun to an increased audience both in Canada and in our destinations.”
Hahn Air’s vice-president of the airline business group, Steve Knackstedt, added: “We’re happy to help Sunwing optimise its distribution strategy and offer wider exposure through eight global distribution systems (GDS). Now travel agents, who wouldn’t otherwise be able to access services of this major player in the field of leisure travel, can offer their customers additional vacation options, generating incremental business for Sunwing.”
Hahn Air is the first and only airline worldwide that offers free and comprehensive reimbursement in case of insolvency of the operating carrier. It is 100% owned by Germany’s Hahn Air Group.
