NEW YORK, April 23, 2013
Fareportal, a leading travel technology company, is the first in the industry to offer its customers US Airways ChoiceSeats. This new functionality allows passengers the convenience of reserving the seats they want, mostly window and aisle seats toward the front of coach, while making a reservation. Customers with ChoiceSeats enjoy the benefit of being among the first to board and the first to leave when they land.
“When it comes to booking flights, we go beyond the guarantee our websites provide for customers; we provide the best deals, and a simplified booking process that is quick and easy,” said Sam Jain, CEO at Fareportal. “A partnership with US Airways allows Fareportal to offer travelers an added bonus when they book with us. This additional service is exactly what we strive for in our commitment to provide truly reliable, one-stop travel solutions.
Fareportal’s websites, which recently ranked ahead of both Orbitz and Travelocity in online visitor market share, offer airfares from over 450 global airlines, including American Airlines, US Airways, United Airlines, British Airways and Cathay Pacific.
“USAirways is pleased to offer ChoiceSeats through Fareportal,” said John Gustafson, USAirways’ Vice President of eCommerce, Mobile & Distribution. “Now that Choice Seats are available to customers who book on either of Fareportal’s websites, more customers will be able to enjoy the many benefits of this product.”
Customers can choose to purchase ChoiceSeats when they book a flight online with Fareportal’s consumer site CheapOair, or directly with US Airways at check-in or through the Manage Reservations section at usairways.com.
