easyJet considers dropping GDS booking charge

2-Jun-2011 12:03 PM

easyJet is considering removing charges to business agents that book its tickets using GDS systems to increase its share of the corporate travel market (TTGlive, 01-Jun-2011). CEO Carolyn McCall said the LCC was “running the numbers” and if extra sales gained as a result outweighed the lost revenue it would go ahead. The point of sale charge was set at GBP5 when introduced in 2008, but was reduced to GBP3.30 after a few months following agent protests.
