A single platform to handle the audit and management of airport taxes has been adopted by Spanish carrier Air Europa.
The ‘tax engine,’ powered by the Vayant Travel Technologies’ OneSearch air fare pricing and shopping engine, is refreshed every 24 hours using data from Iata’s tax database.
Similar solutions powered by Vayant OneSearch are in use with Austrian Airlines and Air Baltic.
Vayant’s vice president of technology Ivan Goychev said: “We worked closely with Air Europa’s IT department to build this unique engine that gives invaluable intelligence about the airport taxes for any given itinerary. Air Europa can now easily analyse the costs generated by flying through any airport.”
