Imagine searching for your summer holiday package instantly, without sacrificing choice, and with the added perk of spending partly or all your frequent flyer points in the process. This is now possible thanks to Finnair Holidays, the new holiday booking brand by Finnair.
The innovative and inspirational search platform is powered by the Amadeus Dynamic Packaging Solution including the Amadeus Leisure Package Internet Booking Engine (IBE) allowing to build package tour offers at the time of the request. The IBE solution can personalise the offer by taking into account the specific wishes of each customer – from the travel length to the number of hotel stars, while at the same time returning results within milliseconds. Finnair Holidays is initially available for customers in Finland via www.finnair.fi/holidays.
Package customers can also get the opportunity to spend points for a frequent flyer program thanks to the integration of Finnair’s Loyalty program Finnair Plus. Customers even get to split their payments between cash and points. Furthermore, GetYourGuide is integrated, a provider of bookable experiences and attractions all over the world.
Finnair Holidays is the first to use Amadeus Leisure Package solutions in the Nordic countries, and at the same time Finnair is the first airline that will address multiple markets with the help of Amadeus.
“It is great to have a Nordic showcase for the Amadeus Dynamic Packaging solutions and their powerful frontend technology,” says Jesper Soderstrom, General Manager Amadeus Nordics. “Finnair Holidays is a great example of how we can support our customers in branching into new opportunities beyond air.”
“A long-standing successful partnership links Amadeus and Finnair,” says Timo Kousa, Managing Director at Finnair’s own tour operator business. “Amadeus was able to provide us with an innovative and flexible solution for our new holiday offering, enabling us to provide our customers with tailor-made packages including a full integration of our frequent flyer program. With the open and inspiring search we can offer our customers an entirely new kind of travel planning. This perfectly matches our aspiration to offer the customers a unique experience – when searching for the dream holiday, during the flight and at the destination.”
