NokScoot signs Hahn Air support

DREIEICH, 28 November 2017: NokScoot has implemented Hahn Air Systems’ H1-Air product, giving the Thai-based carrier access to HR-169 ticketing in all major GDSs worldwide under the reservation code H1.

Earlier in 2017, the airline signed an HR-169 interline agreement with Hahn Air, a provider of airline distribution services, making NokScoot available under its own XW code in the Abacus/Sabre, Amadeus and Travelsky GDSs.

NokScoot is the 15th partner to benefit from the two products of the Hahn Air Group.

As a result of this so called dual partnership, NokScoot will benefit from a full suite of services, including scheduling, fare filing, messaging, inventory management, settlements and HR-169 ticketing.

This will help to optimise its distribution strategy and commercial reach to over 100,000 travel agencies in more than 190 markets worldwide.

Launched in 2014, NokScoot is the joint venture between Singapore Airlines’ budget airline, Scoot, and the Thai airline, Nok Air.

NokScoot, operating out of Bangkok’s Don Mueang International Airport, offers LCC services on medium to long-haul destinations, including Dalian, Nanjing, Taipei, Tianjin, Tsingtao and Shenyang.

NokScoot’s Chief Executive Officer, Yodchai Sudhidhanakul said:  “As our route network expands, we need to offer a ticketing possibility to travel agents who book traditionally via GDSs. Choosing Hahn Air Systems’ product helps us provide a seamless and cost-efficient solution that ensures our routes are available in all major GDSs worldwide.”

Hahn Air Systems is a global consolidation service connecting airlines of all business models as well as rail and shuttle providers to all major GDSs worldwide.

Launched in 2012, Hahn Air Systems’ core product H1-Air enables airlines that have only limited, or no GDS connections of their own, to be bookable under the reservation code H1 by over 100,000 travel agencies in 190 markets.

Similarly, via Hahn Air Systems’ product 5W-Rail&Shuttle, travel agencies can also book rail and shuttle services with no GDS presence of their own under the reservation code 5W in their GDS.

It is a strategic partner of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and 100% owned by the Hahn Air Group which is an international corporation based in Germany.
