OpenJaw Technologies has opened up additional flight shopping capability on its xDistributor retail platform following a deal with Vayant Travel Technologies.
The deal brings Vayant's OneSearch fares and shopping engine capabilities to OpenJaw's xDistributor internet booking system without have to go out to a global distribution system.
Functionality includes calendar and flexible search, fare pricing, availability, taxes, surcharges, schedules and upsell capabilities.
According to OpenJaw the advanced shopping technology will not only save costs for airlines but also give them better control over yield and enable them to improve conversion.
Vayant recently managed to put aside an 18-month row with rival fare shopping start-up Everbread with both parties vowing to concentrate on their own technologies.
The company has also just released an upgraded version of OneSearch providing faster results and additional air inventory.
