Hahn Air celebrates 20th Anniversary

Posted 16 January 2019 · Add Comment

The German scheduled and executive charter airline Hahn Air, which has offices is Casablanca and Johannesburg, is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its ticketing business which was launched in 1999.

 

The airline will honour this milestone in its company history throughout the year with various activities. This includes seven international travel agency events, sponsorships of leading industry events and special competitions for travel agents.

“Our ticketing business has certainly come a long way,”  said Nico Gormsen, co-founder, co-owner and general manager of Hahn Air. “In 1999 we saw a business opportunity: many airlines were eager to sell tickets outside of their key markets through travel agencies but could not shoulder the costs of participating in the settlement systems that exist in almost every market, so-called BSPs. Over the years, Hahn Air joined almost all BSPs and established connections with all major GDSs that are used by travel agents to book and issue tickets. This infrastructure enables other airlines to sell their flights on Hahn Air’s HR-169 ticket.”

Today, Hahn Air has over 350 air, rail and shuttle partners and reaches more than 100,000 travel agencies in 190 markets.

“The airline gains more passengers and incremental business in additional markets, the travel agents can sell tickets of more carriers and the customers benefit from greater choices of airlines and destinations,” said Gormsen.

“For the future, our main ambition is to continue to provide leading services and solutions to our transportation and travel agency partners. We are especially looking, for example, to expand our offer of interline EMDs which enable our partners to sell additional travel-related services and thus increase their revenue. Moreover, we are working on solutions to support NDC interline scenarios soon. And finally, we are continuously forging partnerships with additional airlines to expand our portfolio of partners.”
