Agents Now Earn Commission on Heathrow Express Tickets Booked Through Travelport

Travelport has announced that travel agencies in Ireland, the UK and the Nordics can now earn commission on Heathrow Express tickets booked through Travelport Smartpoint.

The announcement follows the launch earlier this year of Travelport’s industry-first solution offering airport express services to travel agencies through a plugin on its Travel Commerce Platform. The plugin, which is accessible via Travelport Smartpoint, was first adopted by Heathrow Express and offers user friendly and seamless connectivity for agents booking airport express services.

In addition, the plugin:

  • enables multiple airport express service providers connectivity through a single application
  • enables on account payment by applying directly to Heathrow Express
  • offers electronic ticketing where available
  • automatically integrates PNR data
  • supports GBP, EUR and USD currencies for Heathrow Express tickets.

Fraser Brown, Heathrow Express Director, said: “Travelport’s airport express system has been helping us achieve our goal of seamless travel. As part of this, we are pleased that travel agency customers can maximise revenues via Travelport Smartpoint.”
