Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 22 ottobre 2019

Minneapolis, CWT, the B2B4E travel management platform, today announces its first successful live NDC booking through Amadeus Selling Platform Connect, a Level-4 NDC-certified solution that has the capability to shop, book, pay, cancel, refund, void and exchange tickets.The ticket, issued on American Airlines, was done within an actual production environment. It reinforces CWT’s belief that working with travel distribution partners, and our airline partners, results in the best outcome for the industry and shopping experience for the customer.“This is a tremendous milestone in the NDC journey and is an early stage indicator of what can be achieved with industry and technology cooperation,” said Erik Magnuson, CWT’s Vice President, Air Distribution Capabilities. “While this is a hugely positive step forward to making efficient NDC consumption a reality for the business traveler, it is still early days. We need to continue to collaborate as an industry to ensure NDC standards and capabilities can solve the complexities of corporate travel at scale.”“It’s great to have CWT as part of our NDC [X] program, as a key partner that has been truly engaged from the program’s inception,” said Gianni Pisanello, Vice President of Amadeus NDC [X]. “To ensure global adoption of NDC, it’s been crucial to work hand-in-hand with travel management companies like CWT so agents can access, compare, consume and service content via an NDC-connectivity easily and with minimal disruption to their processes and systems.”“The core of American’s NDC strategy is to improve the customer experience no matter where our customers choose to shop,” said Neil Geurin, Director of Distribution Strategy at American. “Today’s announcement by CWT is another key milestone for American in making our NDC-enabled content more broadly available to our customers.” CWT is continuing its NDC pilot programs and will look to update the market further on developments towards the end of the year.

“Ha preso il via il nuovo volo diretto Bologna – Philadelphia di American Airlines”

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 10 giugno 2019

Si è conclusa la cerimonia d’inaugurazione del nuovo volo diretto Bologna – Philadelphia, organizzata da American Airlines e Aeroporto Guglielmo Marconi di Bologna, con la partecipazione di Roberto Antonucci, Director Europe and Offline Sales EMEA di American Airlines, Angelo Camilletti – Manager Sales Southeast Europe di American Airlines, Richard Muise – Director Airport Operations Europe and Canada di American Airlines, Flavio Olivero – Area General Manager di American Airlines, Enrico Postacchini – Presidente Aeroporto di Bologna, Nazareno Ventola – Amministratore Delegato Aeroporto di Bologna e Antonello Bonolis – Direttore Business Aviation e Comunicazione Aeroporto di Bologna.
Il nuovo volo diretto collegherà per tutta la stagione estiva l’Aeroporto Marconi di Bologna al Philadelphia International Airport, il principale hub della compagnia nel Nord-Est degli Stati Uniti, dal quale è possibile proseguire senza ulteriori scali verso numerose destinazioni tra Stati Uniti, Canada, Caraibi e Messico.
La novità è stata festeggiata all’Aeroporto di Bologna, in occasione dell’arrivo e della successiva partenza del primo volo American Airlines, con diverse iniziative: i fiori offerti alle hostess del volo in arrivo, un concerto di musica “bluegrass” (il country del sud-est degli Stati Uniti) in corrispondenza del check-in del volo, il taglio del nastro e la torta offerta ai passeggeri al gate di imbarco. Le celebrazioni si sono concluse con il “water cannon salute” (o battesimo dell’acqua) al volo in partenza con i mezzi dei Vigili del Fuoco, durante il quale American ha voluto stupire i passeggeri del volo, i membri del team e dello scalo aggiungendo all’acqua due coloranti alimentari, uno rosso e uno blu, per un effetto scenografico in perfetto tono con la livrea della compagnia.
I nuovi voli stagionali saranno disponibili da giugno a settembre e verranno operati da aeromobili Boeing 767-300, che offrono in Business Class poltrone completamente reclinabili, nuovi Amenity Kit firmati This is Ground, menù firmati da Chef premiati di fama internazionale e una premiata selezione di vini.American Airlines da diversi anni sta espandendo il network europeo per offrire ancora più scelta ai passeggeri di entrambe le sponde dell’oceano Atlantico. Nel corso della stagione estiva 2019 American Airlines opererà fino a 10 voli diretti al giorno dall’Italia agli Stati Uniti d’America, risultando la compagnia aerea che offre il maggior numero di collegamenti tra i due paesi.

American Airlines Announces Nonstop Philadelphia (PHL) to Orlando Melbourne (MLB)

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 30 settembre 2018

American Airlines announced that it will begin nonstop flights to Orlando Melbourne International Airport (MLB) starting February 16, 2019. The Central Florida airport is conveniently located in the heart of the tourism region and is the closest airport to NASA rocket launches, Port Canaveral’s cruises and what critics call “some of the most beautiful beaches Florida has to offer.”The flights will depart Saturdays from Philadelphia at 8:05 a.m., arriving in Florida at 10:48 a.m. The Embraer 175 jet arrival time syncs perfectly with cruise ship noon early boarding. Melbourne Airport Express offers nonstop shuttle service to the port, and all major rental car companies are onsite. The return flight to PHL departs at 11:24 a.m. and arrives in PHL at 1:55 p.m., with enough time to connect to some of American’s largest international destinations, including recently announced summer service to Dubrovnik, Croatia and Bologna, Italy.Considered a stress-free alternative, new way to travel, American Airlines’ passengers will enjoy all of Florida’s amenities and see why declared MLB the nation’s #1 scenic airport approach. Growing in popularity, MLB is just minutes away from 72 miles of sparkling beaches and Sebastian Inlet State Park, home to more than 100 endangered species, world class surfing and fishing, with the added attraction of a protected tide pool beach where children and manatees can be found sharing the warm ocean waters.“The more that sun-seeking families learn about our area, the more they seek nonstop service via MLB,” said Puneet (PK) Kapur, chairman of the Space Coast Office of Tourism. “We’re close to everywhere people want to go on their Florida family vacation.” MLB Airport Executive Director Greg Donovan, A.A.E. welcomes the expansion of flights from American Airlines and anticipates more flights to serve the more relaxed family-friendly atmosphere found via MLB. “The drive to Disney and Universal seems shorter after a day on the beach.”
