Low-cost carrier Wizz Air has introduced a new ‘Flexible Travel Partner’ service, allowing customers to create a new reservation without including all passengers’ names at the time of booking. The product is designed to help travel managers make flight arrangements well in advance to take advantage of low fares, even if they don’t know who will be on the trip.
When purchasing tickets using the service, customers need only enter one passenger name. They can book up to nine further tickets without including their details and update the tickets at any point up to the point of online check-in. Use of the Flexible Travel Partner service costs €10 per passenger per flight.
The announcement follows the introduction of the Fare Lock product, which allows customers to hold a selected fare for a period of 48 hours before booking.
George Michalopoulos, chief commercial officer at Wizz Air, said: “Following the recent introduction of our Fare Lock service, we are delighted to announce the addition of another innovative service to our ever-growing product portfolio. Flexibility is becoming increasingly important when planning both business and leisure trips. With our new Flexible Travel Partner service, customers can leave the decision of who to travel with up until the last minute, while in the meanwhile securing the lowest possible fares. We continue to monitor consumer preferences and build products catered to their every need.”
