Direct Connect is an excellent new booking option in today’s rapidly changing distribution landscape.
This direct connection to Lufthansa Inventory via dcs plus' technology unlocks the possibility for travel agencies to search and book flight services, as well as ancillary services, simultaneously through all distribution channels of Lufthansa Group, including Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines and SWISS.
The new feature can be used for all sales channels included inside the dcs plus technology: internal usage, B2B reseller partners, B2C online sales. Moreover, all the sales channels will be able to access the full inventory of the Lufthansa Group, including the new European Fare Structures introduced earlier this year: Light, Classic, Flex, and Business.
dcs plus technology is able to offer bookings of Lufthansa Group services from both Global Distribution Systems as well as direct connect option. This flexibility provides clients with the freedom to choose their best travel option and use customary booking, payment and ticket issuance processes without any additional transaction fee to the travel agency. In case the booking is made through Lufthansa Direct Connect, the GDS fee does not apply for the respective booking.
