Diversity Travel has reached an agreement with British Airways and Iberia to allow its customers to avoid the new GDS booking fee.
Diversity – which ranked 26th in BBT’s 50 Leading TMCs this year – is the latest in a string of agreements with BA and Iberia. The deal applies to bookings made through the Amadeus system and means Diversity’s clients will not be subject to the £8 per leg surcharge, which came into effect on November 1.
Christopher Airey, MD at Diversity Travel, said: “We understand the technological advances in distribution and the benefits they offer, and back efforts to improve content options for consumers. This agreement ensures that our academic and charity clients continue to receive the most competitive fares and content, whilst also underlining our commitment to NDC and future distribution channel development.”
