What does this mean for us as consumers? Both companies are good in their domains, with Travelstart very strong in providing low-cost airline tickets and Club Travel stronger in the corporate market. This acquisition by the founder of Travelstart Stephan Ekbergh makes perfect sense in growing its market share in a very competitive market.
“The deal is still subject to approval by the Competition Commission and no operational strategies have been put in place, the aim is for Travelstart to purchase 100% of the shares for the Club Travel Group. Thebe Tourism will then reinvest in Club Travel Corporate as the majority shareholder with Travelstart holding 46% of this division’s shares” [source tnw]
All the best to Travelstart and Club Travel. Let us see how this will affect us at Book Cheap Tickets.
In an attempt to improve the way we check-in on FlySafair flights, FlySafair has introduced Check-In Rangers. These members of the FlySafair crew will assist you with check-in, print your boarding pass and tag your bags.
Check-In Rangers can be identified with a bright pink hat and “cowboy or cowgirl” style clothing. After the 14th June, this will be swapped to pink sashes.
FlySafair’s Head of Sales and Distribution; Kirby Gordon said, “Our innovative IT team has been working tirelessly to get this process off the ground, and we’re proud that we’re finally able to implement it at our airports, to the benefit of our customers. We needed a way for passengers to find the rangers as quickly and as easily as possible at the airport, hence the sashes and the holsters”.
Let us see how this goes, should you have any feedback regarding your experience with these rangers please feel free to share your experiences below.
