Norwegian Cruise Line has launched a new booking platform for fly-cruise itineraries.
The line claims NCL Air will transform the way agents make bookings of this type.
NCL Air offers real-time access and current pricing to flights from UK and Ireland to departure ports around the world.
Agents earn “a minimum 10% commission on the entire flight package”.
The line said: “With NCL Air, agents can offer flight options from a wide variety of regional gateways and can opt for exclusive NCL-contracted fares, which give guests greater flexibility, or restricted fares at more attractive pricing that are subject to payment and cancellation restrictions. It also allows for easy upgrades to premium economy, business and first class flights.”
Fares include checked baggage and airport and port round-trip transfers as well as a pre-cruise hotel night, can be added.
All cabin classes and airlines bookable through Amadeus, including British Airways, Jet2.com, Virgin Atlantic, easyJet and KLM.
To mark NCL Air’s introduction, NCL is giving agents the opportunity to win a fly-cruise for two onboard Norwegian Epic or Norwegian Dawn. Agents will be entered into a prize draw for every fly-cruise booking they make using NCL Air before 31 December 2020.
As an alternative prize, NCL is offering tickets to hit musical Six, which will tour the UK in 2021.
“This new air tool is precisely what we’ve been looking for as a great addition to the tech made available to us by NCL”, said Dave Mills, vice-president global supply director of Iglu.
“These days, more than ever, being able to offer customers both choice and reassurance that the holiday they’ve been looking forward to for so long can be tailored exactly to their requirements is a huge benefit. Agents are going to love it."
