Peakwork launches new flight comfort features from Quicket
Travel technology provider Peakwork now provides valuable aircraft information about seats and add-ons. Sourced from Quicket, this data can be displayed on travel websites and within booking solutions directly with the flight offer.
Customer expectations are rising continuously, as is the pressure on airlines to differentiate. In the booking process, on board comfort features are often overlooked for customers booking online. Greater legroom is often high on the wish list of many travellers. These and other comfort features can have a strong influence on the airline booking decision.
Quicket provides this detailed information on more than 48,000 aircraft from more than 700 airlines, including seat distance to the front seat, seat width and maximum seat tilt. Similarly, data regarding the entertainment system can be displayed, as well as whether Wi-Fi, power at the seat or audio and video on-demand are available.
Travel portal operators working with Peakwork Technology can now share and display this data. Christian Andersen, Director Flight at Peakwork, explains: "When choosing a flight, the customer can see just how much legroom they can expect or whether there is WLAN on board. These are very relevant criteria that can have signifcant influence on the flight booking decision. "
For the technical connection, Peakwork directly connects to the QUICKET programming interface (API). Further flight information can also be made available in the future.
