YEREVAN, February 27. / ARKA /. The Skyfly.am online booking system has been launched in Armenia today. It allows paying minimal price for airline tickets. Now anyone can visit the website and find the best offer for the chosen destination within 3 minutes. Payments are received directly on the site with credit cards. Skyfly’s customers save money and time.
The online reservation of airline tickets has been widely practiced in the world. In many European countries it exceeds the 60 percent of the market. Cutting costs on offices and staff gives the travel agencies the possibility to sell airline tickets cheap, based on minimal commissions.
Skyfly.am is an airline tickets online reservation system with unique execution. The price of the same ticket (Yerevan-Moscow, for instance) may vary in Yerevan, Moscow and Sydney. Accepting destination and date info, the system sends request to 20 accredited IATA agents on 5 continents. Receiving 20 different prices for the same ticket, the system offers the client the cheapest one. Moreover, it is quite possible that the cheap ticket is sold only in Sydney offices. For many destinations the price difference can be pretty significant.
“The future of airline tickets business, no doubt, is in new technologies and online sales. We have agreements with 20 accredited IATA agents and over 500 airline companies on 5 continents. Using a unique algorithm allows us offering the client the ticket in a few minutes at a price, which cannot be obtained in any travel agency or even in the representative office of the airline company in Armenia. Skyfly.am has been operating a couple of days now and our first clients have already purchased their tickets”, said Mikayel Saghyan, the director of Skyfly.am.
The Skyfly.am system was for the first time presented to the public in December, 2013, within the frames of Innovative Ideas and Programming annual competition held by Microsoft Innovation Center, where it was recognized as one of the best teams and became an MIC member. The project also earned Armenia’s PM Tigran Sargsyan’s special commendation. -0-
