INTRO: A Guy Now Selling Seats On A Shared Charter Online

Dear friends and clients,

Last month, I wrote how I started out in 2006 selling seats on a shared charter at the St. Barths Gustavia Airport and how that processed evolved to a non-physical presence with the focus on the AirSXM.com website. As a matter of fact, we also have a non-physical presence at the PJIA SXM Airport, but that is another story all together.

I explained that the next step in the evolution of the AirSXM.com website and the AirStMaarten virtual airline concept is a next-generation reservation system at the heart of the new website, where you can book flights and charters. Clients can also gain significant savings by subscribing to flights to such destinations as St. Barths, St. Eustatius and Aruba if they are a frequent AirStMaarten flyer. But more on our loyalty programme in a future newsletter.

The new AirSXM website and portal will be very simple to understand, yet very powerful. From the new AirSXM website you will still be able to request reservations using the old AirSXM reservation request system, but more importantly, you will be able to choose to book our flights and charters directly online via the new AirStMaarten online booking engine. That will be a major improvement in our service delivery to our existing clients and new customers alike.

Internally, we will be able to make reservations from our back-office and also from our future call-center. The new system also offers our handling agents the ability to make reservations from their airport counter desk. Finally, travel agents, hotel concierge desk clerks, VIP Services agents and even corporate account clients will also be able to access our reservation system via their own agent logins.

An interesting side note for our non-English speaking clients, the new AirStMaarten online booking engine also supports multiple languages. This is the case for both the agents login and the online booking engine.

More about these new developments in the next issue. In the meantime.....

Happy Readings!

Airlines and Travel Agencies - Cont.

by Terrance Rey

Travel Agency Sales Office for AirStMaarten

In last month's issue I wrote about the trend wherein we see airlines and travel agencies no longer just selling airline tickets, but also offering full service bundles of products and services that offer the greatest amount of convenience to their booking clients and maximizing revenues in the process.

By 2014 we should have at least three (3) outlets selling AirStMaarten products and services on a dedicated basis. These will be basically branches of the AirStMaarten sales offices combined with our travel agencies. The aim to control a significant market share with as much reach as is feasible and viable.
