oneworld has become the first airline alliance to enable customers to plan and book multiple round-the-world trips on their tablet computers.
The development comes as part of a series of upgrades to the alliance’s online booking engine for its flagship oneworld Explorer fare. This latest version of the oneworld Explorer booking engine is accessible through iPads and tablets powered by Android phones as well as desktop and laptop computers.
Stephen Usery, vice president for commercial at oneworld said, “oneworld was the first alliance – and indeed the first in the travel industry – to offer multi-airline round-the-world tickets for sale online with the launch of our original booking engine five years ago. Now we are the first to offer the facility via tablets – which are increasingly the computers of choice for the frequent international travellers who are oneworld’s prime target market.”
