Venice Marco Polo Airport, named after the Venetian merchant traveller who was born in the city, is located to the North East of Italy, and is the country’s fifth busiest airport. The airport handles nearly nine million travellers each year, and is the third largest Italian gateway for intercontinental flights. Marco Polo Airport also remains focussed on maintaining the right balance between traditional and low cost carriers.
In its search for excellence, Marco Polo Airport needed to provide a more flexible, easier to use reservation solution with the added functionality and innovation needed to achieve the airports growth targets.
Alongside further growth, Venice Airport were committed to improving the journey of their passenger, and among the most important features for their new reservation system were:
- The ability to quickly and easily change pricing to maximise revenue
- The ability to launch new products and provide partners (travel agents) with an easier to use interface and more control over pricing and discounts
With the help of AltitudeReservation, Venice will now look to increase online bookings by 15% year on year, coupled with an increase of the average transaction value. Altitude will also enable the airport to launch more products, provide a compelling corporate program and increase partner bookings.
The AltitudeReservation system is currently used by Swedavia, Copenhagen, Munich and London Gatwick Airport, to name but a few. Marco Polo Airport wanted the reservation system which was recognised as the best by the leading Airports of Europe.
