WORLD FIRST: Aeronology to launch independent full-service platform for mobile travel agents

Travel technology player Aeronology is set to launch the world’s first independent full-service platform for mobile travel agents.

Aeronology Mobile is a world-first travel agent application that promises to help travel advisors rebound with a sophisticated and seamless global online, mobile and full-service travel booking toolbox.

“It’s a going to change the travel advisor industry,” Aeronology CEO Russell Carstensen (pictured above) said.

“An advisor can now keep all commission in what is an affordable, user-pay, one-stop-shop application which allows you to earn more and save time.”

The new application can be used globally and travel advisors can operate anywhere they have access to the internet.

“This application isn’t an overnight discovery; it has been years in the making and is one that offers hope for this moment of need in a world of uncertainty,” Carstensen said.

“We have built a travel technology service which doesn’t require licences, set-up fees or base costs.

“You pay as you use. It’s simple. We can even provide the travel advisor with their preferred GDS service of Sabre, Travelport or TravelSky, or use your own GDS contract. You on-charge and collect your fees at the point of sale.”

Aeronology Mobile caters for IATA and non-IATA agents, and Carstensen said it creates the lowest cost of sale in the market by not having the overheads or headaches of ongoing costs such as rent, licence fees, mid-office and inflexible communication charges.

The application is free to set up provides the ‘nose to tail’ service which every travel business requires in the current environment, according to Aeronology’s CEO.

“The travel agent/advisor owns all their data and we provide a traveller profile database, all the shopping, plus booking and transaction services for any travel product on a web-based booking platform,” Carstensen said.

“This includes a mid-office service which will load to all the major accounting systems, including MYOB, Xero and QuickBooks.

“The travel agent will never pay another monthly mid-office licence fee again. In the current travel environment, travel experts need to be flexible, adaptable and mobile as well as have the ability to operate off their tablets, laptops or even their mobile phones.”

Aeronology Mobile will launch in early 2021, and you can register your interest by emailing mobile@aeronology.travel.
