How Altair increased its market share by giving customers more choice

Some travelers want the lowest fare possible that will get them from A to B. Others are willing to pay more for upgrades like baggage allowance, flexible dates, or lounge access. Greek online travel agency, Altair, wanted to provide options for its customers—whichever way they choose to travel.

Some travelers want to book the cheapest fare possible that will get them from A to B. Others are willing to pay more for upgrades like baggage allowance, flexible dates, or lounge access. Greek online travel agency Altair wanted to provide options for all its customers — whichever way they choose to travel.

“We know there will always be some customers who want more than basic fares can offer — whether that’s additional baggage allowance, or the ability to change dates before they fly. The challenge was: how to tap into this opportunity by making these kinds of fare options available on site.”
— Vasilis Panagopoulos, Head of Revenue Management at Altair


Seamless booking experience

As its key distribution partner, Altair has worked with Travelport to introduce branded fares. The implementation was quick and simple and now its customers can choose upgraded fare options from more than 30 key carriers, in several languages. Through a seamless booking experience, customers can select fares with baggage allowance and flexible dates, alongside basic fares.

For some airlines, the number of customers upgrading their fare is as high as 20%.

New revenue stream

Introducing branded fares has also opened a new revenue stream for Altair that is directly benefitting its bottom line.

“The returns have far exceeded the cost of implementing the solution and we look forward to even greater revenue growth with Travelport Branded Fares in the future.”
