    Aeronology has announced a wide-reaching technology and services provider agreement with Virtuoso, the global network specialising in luxury and experiential travel.

    The Melbourne-based company provides travel agents with a modern “full service” point-of-sale travel booking platform and was named one of the Hot Top 25 Travel Start-Up’s 2023 by Phocuswire.

    Virtuoso advisers will have access to a seamless and modern booking experience thanks to the meticulously designed ‘AeroFares’ platform.

    Aeronology also provides airfares and ticketing technology services for Sabre, Travelport, Amadeus and TravelSky.

    “We are extremely proud and honoured to be selected as a global airfares and ticketing technology supplier for a company as distinguished as Virtuoso,” Aeronology CEO Russell Carstensen said.

    “Virtuoso is the leading global network of luxury travel, and its advisors are unparalleled in their expertise on both destinations and products.

    “It’s our mission to assist these advisors with air services, a landscape that has become increasingly fragmented and complex.”

    “Our technology addresses the needs of three types of travel advisor. Firstly, we serve non-GDS, non-IATA users. Secondly, a travel advisor equipped with GDS but not IATA,” Carstensen continued.

    “And thirdly, the large host travel advisors who possess both GDS and IATA but need a full-ticket centre solution for their travel advisors and ICs.”

    Aeronology’s services will commence late June 2024 in the North American market, and other global markets are expected to quickly follow suit.
