Dohop partners with AEGEAN to launch new flight connections platform: “AEGEAN Beyond”
Customers of AEGEAN can now purchase multi-leg trips via ‘AEGEAN Beyond’ to reach new European and intercontinental destinations. The technology behind this is powered by Dohop, whose platform handles ancillaries and provides assistance services in case of disruptions.
Dohop today announced the launch of “AEGEAN Beyond”, a new connecting platform that allows AEGEAN’s passengers to book multi-leg journeys across Europe and beyond.
“AEGEAN Beyond” offers passengers a wide range of destinations by displaying possible flight combinations between AEGEAN and other collaborating airlines on a single platform, facilitating a streamlined booking process. This service allows AEGEAN to further expand its network and connect passengers from all sides of Greece with a number of destinations across Europe, North America, Africa, and beyond. As part of this launch, “AEGEAN Beyond” includes connections with partner airlines like EasyJet, Vueling and Air Transat.
“AEGEAN Beyond,” which is powered by Dohop’s API-based technology, enables travelers to book connecting flights along with a variety of ancillary services in one booking process. Bookings made through “AEGEAN Beyond” also include access to Dohop’s connection service, which provides travelers with additional support in the event of flight delays or cancellations.
