Fareportal Continues to Lead the Travel Industry in Ancillary Attachment Capabilities in New Integration with Hawaiian Airlines
Fareportal, the global travel technology company powering CheapOair.com and OneTravel.com, today announced that it is the first U.S.-based online travel agency to partner with Hawaiian Airlines to sell Extra Comfort seating.
As an expert in ancillary product attachment including added-value seating or additional baggage, Fareportal partnered with Hawaiian Airlines to be the first U.S. OTA to develop and beta test this new feature. The new integration allows CheapOair and OneTravel customers to select and pay for Extra Comfort seating using a real-time interactive seat map for a seamless booking process and an enhanced customer experience.
Hawaiian’s Extra Comfort option is available on the airlines’ Airbus A330s and A321s and features five additional inches of leg room (36 inches of seat pitch) as well as priority boarding, a complimentary amenity kit, and a personal power outlet.
“Our ancillary attachment team leads the industry when it comes to integrating added-value products on our sites,” said Sam S. Jain, CEO of Fareportal. “It is an honor to partner with Hawaiian Airlines as the first U.S. online travel agency to incorporate their Extra Comfort options on CheapOair and OneTravel. This new feature is not only beneficial for Hawaiian Airlines but also for our customers by providing them with more choices as they book their travel.”
