The latest airline to come on board Hahn Air’s diversified system is Sunwing Airlines, a Canadian carrier, for which ticketing on the HR-169 document has been activated.
Hahn Air recently signed an interline agreement with the Canadian leisure airline Sunwing Airlines (WG). According to a recent announcement, Hahn Air has activated ticketing on the HR-169 document for Sunwing Airlines. With this development, Sunwing Airlines has become the latest addition to Hahn Air’s network of over 350 air, rail and shuttle partners, which can be booked in Abacus, Amadeus, Apollo, Galileo, Infini, Sabre, Topas and Worldspan GDSs under its own code and issued on Hahn Air’s insolvency safe ticket worldwide.
Founded in 2005, Toronto-based airline Sunwing comprises Canada’s youngest and most fuel-efficient fleet of over 40 Boeing 737-800 and Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft. The airline offers flight services from over 33 airports across Canada and five in the USA to over 45 popular destinations across the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America and Florida. In fact, the airline has more direct flights to the sunny south than any other Canadian leisure airline.
Welcoming the move, Andrew Dawson, President—Tour Operations, Sunwing, said, “Our agreement with Hahn Air will now mean we can offer our wide range of flights to an increased audience
both in Canada and in our destinations.”
Steve Knackstedt, Vice President—Airline Business Group, Hahn Air, added. “We’re happy to help Sunwing optimise its distribution strategy and offer wider exposure through eight Global Distribution Systems. Now travel agents, who wouldn’t otherwise be able to access services of this major player in the field of leisure travel, can offer their customers additional vacation options, generating incremental business for Sunwing.”
Hahn Air is the first and only airline worldwide offering free and comprehensive reimbursement in case of insolvency of the operating carrier.
- While Hahn Air’s ticketing services are on offer exclusively to travel agents, travellers are also free to choose from more carriers, more routes and more destinations
