How UBIO solves flight connectivity

Flight OTAs that can offer comprehensive price accurate content, inclusive of low cost carriers, give themselves a commercial advantage. OTAs that are unable to provide full market coverage due to a lack of integration options find themselves losing out on potential revenue.

UBIO's flight booking API gives flight OTAs access to airlines, including low cost carries, through a single API. This flight booking capability is carrier agnostic and is not reliant on existing carrier APIs, integrations, or carriers managing their inventory through third-party platforms. OTAs can help differentiate their solution with access to carriers typically unavailable elsewhere.

Additionally, UBIO's technology automates post-booking activities, minimising the need for manual intervention. Customers report increased coverage, reduced booking fees, and streamlined operations with our automation technology.

Facing the challenge of maximising flight coverage, leading OTAs are turning to UBIO's flight connectivity solution to access cheaper fares, add more airlines and automate post-booking flows.

Expand through increased coverage

Increasing coverage is a continuing challenge for flight OTAs who wish to venture into new consumer markets. While a combination of GDS, NDC, aggregator and direct integration can offer reasonable coverage, the coverage is not exhaustive.

Leading OTAs are embracing UBIO's new connectivity technology to access a greater amount of content for airlines and routes, improving coverage and creating a competitive advantage in the busy flight market.
