Lübeck Air expands network thanks to Airsiders’ virtual interlining
Airsiders’ modern booking platform Volario enables the airline to offer hundreds of seamless flight connections
Thanks to the cooperation with Airsiders, Lübeck Air passengers will soon be able to seamlessly book a connecting flight from Lübeck outbound to any destination directly on their website. The flights are merged based on Airsiders' unique Virtual Interlining (VI) algorithm, which enables Lübeck Air to offer pre-combined itineraries bookable in a single transaction, plus connection protection to cover potential issues during travel.
Lübeck Air is a German boutique regional airline based in the beautiful Hanseatic city of Lübeck. It offers ten destinations throughout Europe – from metropolitan regions like Munich to picturesque places like Bergen, Menorca and Keflavik. The fleet consists of two aircraft based at Lübeck Airport. Lübeck Air is one of the last full-service airlines in Europe to include hand and checked baggage in every fare. A snack from the in-house kitchen and a smile from the crew are also part of every flight experience.
The airline's year-round focus is on business travellers as well as exclusive holiday seekers coming from Lübeck and the catchment area such as Kiel, Lüneburg, Northeast Hamburg, Schwerin and Rostock. Based on Lübeck Air's business model of being an independent regional airline, up to now passengers looking to travel internationally only had the option of purchasing two separate tickets – one with Lübeck Air and another with another carrier for the onward flight.
“The cooperation with Airsiders helps us to connect Lübeck with the world. We can offer numerous new destinations together with different airlines and still retain our independence. In addition to the availability of new destinations, we are working together with Airsiders to ensure that passengers' luggage can be checked through. This will offer significant added value for travellers.” - emphasises Axel Reissmann, Chief Executive Officer of Lübeck Air.
“We are proud to work together with Lübeck Air on this project. Together we can offer passengers new attractive flights and bring remote destinations “closer” to Europe. We view this as the first step in a long-term collaboration and look forward to innovating our industry together.” - outlines Yavuz Karadag, CEO and Co-Founder of Airsiders.
