As a sign of our continued close relationship, Wexas has today reached an agreement with British Airways and Iberia that will see the airlines waive a new Distribution Technology Charge of £8.00 per fare.
The levy was set to come into force on November 1 2017.
Ian Luck, British Airways’ head of distribution, was buoyant: “Today’s announcement...demonstrates our commitment to work with our indirect partners for the mutual benefit of our customers.
“We will continue to work with agents, GDS and technology providers to ensure that our new capability content will have a strong market reach.”
Wexas managing director, Katherine Gershon, welcomed the announcement: “Wexas has a long-standing relationship with British Airways and we’re delighted to be working in partnership to offer our clients – both corporate and leisure – new opportunities and fares.”
