Hahn Air announced that it has activated ticketing on the HR-169 document for the Canadian leisure airline Sunwing Airlines (WG). The new addition to Hahn Air’s network of over 350 air, rail and shuttle partners 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, the Toronto-based airline, Sunwing Airlines, comprises Canada’s youngest and most fuel-efficient fleet of over 40 Boeing 737-800 and Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft. With convenient flight services from over 33 airports across Canada and five in the USA to over 45 of the most popular vacation destinations across the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America and Florida, Sunwing offers more direct flights to the sunny south than any other Canadian leisure airline.
President of Tour Operations for Sunwing, Andrew Dawson, welcomed the news. “We are pleased to finalize this agreement with Hahn Air that will now mean we can offer our wide range of flights to the sun to an increased audience both in Canada and in our destinations.”
Hahn Air’s Vice President of the Airline Business Group, Steve Knackstedt, 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.”
