Air Canada joins Hahn Air’s partner network
5 January 2021
Hahn Air announced an interline agreement with Canada’s flag carrier and Star Alliance member, Air Canada (AC). The partnership with Hahn Air enables Air Canada to open indirect ticket sales in 61 additional markets where the carrier is not a member of the local settlement system BSP. Travel agents in these markets can now book flights of Air Canada in all major GDSs under its own AC code and issue them on Hahn Air’s insolvency-safe HR-169 ticket*.
Air Canada is Canada's largest domestic and international airline. It is among the 20 largest airlines in the world and in 2019 served over 51 million customers. Air Canada is a founding member of Star Alliance and the only international network carrier in North America to receive a Four-Star ranking according to independent U.K. research firm Skytrax. Skytrax also named Air Canada the Best Airline in North America in 2019. Headquartered in Montreal, Air Canada flies to 64 domestic destinations and 158 international destinations across Asia, Africa, the Americas, Europe, and Oceania.
Hahn Air’s Vice President Airline Business, Steve Knackstedt, commented: “We’re proud to welcome Air Canada into our partner network and pleased to offer our travel agent partners yet another premium ticketing opportunity. Our solutions are for every airline, no matter its size or business model. Even airlines that already have a solid indirect distribution strategy in place can benefit from our solutions. With our product HR-169, we close the distribution gaps of our interline partners, open new markets and ultimately generate incremental revenue through additional ticket sales. This is especially relevant in the airline industry’s forthcoming state of recovery.”
