Safarilink and Tanganyika Flying Co announce cross system code share.

After many weeks of system testing, East African tourism aviation specialists, Safarilink and Tanganyika Flying Co (TFC), today announced the launch of their codeshare agreement that is fully integrated into both their reservation systems. This will allow travel industry customers of either airline to book flights from either carrier from within one carrier’s reservation system. Julian Edmunds, Managing Director of TFC said that this new arrangement will initially allow tour operators with a system login to book TFC flights from the Safarilink system or Safarilink flights from the TFC system. Anu Vohora, Safarilink’s Marketing Director, said that over an initial trial period, Safarilink would book the TFC Serengeti flights in Premium Class, whilst TFC would book the Safarilink Maasai Mara flights in Y Class. Therefore should a tour operator or agent make a booking for a Safarilink flight to Mara using the TFC system, they will pay TFC for the flight, according to their commercial terms with TFC, and likewise if they book a TFC flight to Serengeti using the Safarilink system they will pay Safarilink accordingly.

Both Anu and Julian commended the work of Meir Hadassi from AeroCRS, who has pioneered the technology to make this possible.

Both Anu and Julian will be at the SA Tourism Indaba from 11 to 15 May. Anu has a table in the Atta marquee, whilst Julian will be joining Federal Air in the ICC on stand K001.
