Air Canada Offers Cash Rewards On Domestic & Transborder Groups
Air Canada is making
adjustments based on market feedback to last month’s Tango fares commission
elimination. The carrier has announced that agents can now earn ‘cash rewards’
on Domestic Canada and Transborder group bookings – in all fare classes.
All AC group bookings in
these segments are now eligible for a 5% cash reward. This applies to all fare
types including Tango.
“Air Canada will continue to
tweak our compensation strategy to remain competitive in the market place. As
you can appreciate the market dynamics change every day and our competitors
also have an impact on our models,” Duncan Bureau, Air Canada’s Vice President,
Global Sales told Open Jaw. “We believe we had an opportunity within group
bookings to make an adjustment to remain relevant.”
Groups with Air Canada
comprise 10 or more pax flying to the same destination on the same date.
Other aspects of recent
commission adjustments will remain the same, i.e.:
- 4% Cash Rewards for bookings made via web and GDS on Flex, Latitude,
Business Class & Premium rouge fares
