TripStack, a travel technology solutions provider and a member of Etraveli Group (ETG), has launched its Self-Connect product for airlines, also known as Virtual Interlining.
This “game-changing solution” marks a “significant advancement” in the airline industry, allowing airlines to expand their reach and offer a wider range of destinations to their customers, according to TripStack.
Self-Connect, or Virtual Interlining (VI), combines flights from the retailing airline with other carriers to create itineraries that seamlessly services a global set of destinations.
This concept allows airlines to expand their network by offering customers additional travel destinations they do not directly service.
It also strengthens the airline’s market presence and TripStack’s commercial model provides the airline with a new revenue stream.
Nok Air, a prominent airline based in Thailand, has leveraged TripStack’s Self-Connect solution and recently announced the launch of a new service called “NokGo”. NokAir is known for its commitment to providing exceptional travel experiences to its passengers, and this partnership with Tripstack further solidifies its dedication to innovation and customer satisfaction.
“We are excited to announce our partnership with TripStack, which will provide our Nok Air passengers with a more flexible choice of travel options across the Globe. With this new platform we wish to take flight connectivity to the next level for our passengers by offering them more flights to more destinations.” Said Dr Wutthiphum Jurangkool, Chief Executive Officer, NokAir.
Gabor Toth, CEO of TripStack, emphasized the significance of this collaboration, stating: - “We are thrilled to be working with a forward-thinking airline such as Nok Air, which understands the growth opportunity for virtual interlining solutions in global markets. We look forward to further collaborating with Nok Air, expanding their service, and providing Nok Air with new commercial opportunities.”
TripStack and Nok Air’s collaboration will revolutionize the way airlines operate and interact with their passengers. As VI for airlines gains momentum in the industry, TripStack anticipates that more airlines will recognize the unique benefits of the Self-Connect solution to enhance their offerings and strengthen their competitiveness in the global aviation market.
