Press release from: HitchHiker GmbH

Everyone who has own airfares or has negotiated fares, knows that the efficient administration of net fares is a challenge. Depending on the amount and complexity of the tariffs, companies load and manage their fares themselves or outsource this service. HitchHiker’s visualFares Entry is a professional fare loading and distribution tool used by many international customers for more than 15 years. The application can be utilised internally or through a HitchHiker service partner.

Many HitchHiker customers have already outsourced this service successfully and now we are happy to introduce our new partner for fare loading: Bird Information Systems (BIS). BIS is a CMMI Level 3 certified company and part of the travel conglomerate The Bird Group. The Bird Group has over 40 years’ experience in the travel, tourism and aviation market. The Indian Travel Technology Specialist takes care of the loading, administration and distribution of net fares. This service is attracting to airlines and consolidators as well as to tour operators and portals. They can have all their airline contracts loaded by BIS and are able to outsource the complete administration of their fare database to BIS. To export the fares the HitchHiker VFX format and the STADAF (standard format) are available. No matter if tour operator, consolidator or other net fares, all tariffs can be distributed target-oriented in the desired format to the customers.

Brisco Chandra, General Manager at Bird Information Systems: “We guarantee quality, cost efficiency and fast delivery through the professional administration of tariff data. The fares are available to the customers within the shortest time. As the largest Travel Technology provider in India, we provide 24 hour service 365 days a year with qualified staff. HitchHiker’s visualFares Entry is already treasured by our specialists, since all important fare attributes can be loaded in a time efficient manner. We are very happy with the cooperation with HitchHiker.”

Since Bird Information System offers not only fare loading, but also rebooking, PNR checking and any more services, the cooperation will be extended in the future. Andreas Bieber, International Key Account Manager at HitchHiker: “Due to the strategic combination of HitchHiker Technology in the area of PNR process automation and the first-class services by Bird Information System in this field, further synergies will arise. Thus, both companies will be able to expand their portfolio and provide better services to their customers.”

Working as an independent software house since 1992, Hitchhiker has been developing tariff management software solutions for airlines and consolidators under the name of visualFares. In addition, HitchHiker also offers hosting services („“), front and back-end solutions including Internet-booking machines for all types of bookable flights such as scheduled flights, charter flights and low cost carriers as well as net fares and nego fares. With its headquarters in Frankfurt on the Main, HitchHiker has a total of 50 employees.
