Flybe eases bookings with API deal

Flybe has teamed up with Travelfusion to develop a Direct Connect XML API for online booking tools.

The new partnership has allowed agents to move away from the ‘screen scrapping’ method and has been announced as the airline launches its consumer ‘Making Flying Better’ campaign.

“The challenges facing our partners in managing the integration of content via ‘screen-scraping’ our website, often led to loss of connectivity with the consequential loss of bookings,” sid Stephen Hobday, director of sales at Flybe. “We have therefore been working closely with Travelfusion to ensure that we are now consistently able to offer real-time availability and fully automated booking processes through the XML API”.
