DREIEICH, Germany – Hahn Air Systems, the global consolidation service connecting small and medium airlines to all GDSs worldwide, announced that in the first quarter of 2015 alone it has already welcomed five new carriers to its global e-alliance® network: CM Airlines from Honduras, Federal Air from South Africa, Jubba Airways from Kenya, SkyGreece Airlines from Greece and Via Air from the United States. With the new partners, e-alliance® exceeds 30 airlines available under two-letter code H1.
Launched in 2012, e-alliance® enables H1 partners to be booked by 95,000 travel agencies in 190 markets through all GDSs worldwide and to be issued on the Hahn Air HR-169 ticket. Among the services offered by Hahn Air Systems are scheduling, fare filing, messaging, inventory management as well as booking, ticketing and settlement.
“We are very pleased to see our partner portfolio grow”, says Alexander Proschka, Head of Hahn Air Systems. “We see strong potential for our services as we enable airlines to reach for the global market by outsourcing the complex process of indirect distribution with our easy plug-and-play solution. We plan to add another 15 airlines to e-alliance® by the end of this year.”
“We are a mid-sized airline with a strong regional direct business in Central America”, says Anthony Hunt, Marketing Director of Tropic Air. ”Since joining e-alliance®, we have seen strong business growth in our target markets. This is without a doubt due to the global connectivity that Hahn Air Systems is able to provide to niche carriers such as ourselves. More importantly, their services fit the tight cost parameters that we have.”
