Let me start by wishing you all, on behalf of everyone at flyiin, a Happy and Healthy New Year. To our customers, to our partner airlines, to our investors, and to everyone in and outside the industry who has been following our progress in the past years.


What a roller coaster ride 2020 has been, and it looks like this ride is not over yet. ‘Black Mirror’ in real-time, am I right? There is, however, light at the end of this (way too) long tunnel. The start of the vaccination campaigns across the world shall (let’s cross all our fingers) mean the return, at some point this year, to a more “standard” life and to…. travelling. Something, I am sure, many of us are eagerly looking forward to.


Despite the circumstances, which we are all too familiar with, looking back at 2020, I can’t help feeling tremendously proud of what we, as a company, and as a team, have been able to achieve. Given our size, our financial resources, and the market in which we are operating, the fact that we made it through last year is, putting it simply, extraordinary.


This has all been possible thanks to the exceptional individuals who make our outstanding team. In the face of an increasingly uncertain environment, they kept their heads down and their spirits up, allowing us to:

  • Sign up two new travel sellers

  • Be back in production

  • Upgrade our Air Travel API

  • Address some key NDC-related challenges

  • On-board new airlines


And in 2021 we will continue on this positive path, with a new and major go-live planned for the first quarter, and many more airline integrations as a result of this go-live.


From an airline distribution perspective, we at flyiin feel positive about the sector’s recovery. Many of the airlines, which have been investing into NDC-based distribution in the last year are continuing to do so, bringing more and more capabilities to their distribution APIs. Meanwhile, we are also witnessing more and more travel sellers looking at ways to benefit those APIs earlier than later.


As one of the original players in the NDC space, these positive signs give the confidence in the sector’s commitment to deliver the best possible booking experience to all those hungry travellers out there, when travel becomes a solid reality again.


Have a great 2021!

We’re glad to announce that Aegean Airlines is now available through our Air Travel API. Our channel partners will now be able to easily sell the airline’s flights and ancillary services* for all types of passengers.


* Additional bags for check-in right now, Advance Seat Reservation coming soon.


Aegean recently announced the introduction of a €5 surcharge on tickets sold via the traditional Global Distribution Systems (GDS). So I guess the addition of the airline to our growing list of available airlines comes at the right time!


Since our Airline DirectConnect platform leverages the NDC APIs of the two airlines, tickets sold via our Air Travel API will not be subject to this surcharge and your customers will be able to enjoy the best possible offers from Aegean. The same goes for Lufthansa Group airlines, Iberia and British Airways, which are already all available through our API.


With our platform now fully “ancillary services-capable”, our focus is now back on delivering the best and largest possible choice of airlines. Aegean Airlines is the first of our new wave of airline integrations at flyiin, to be followed shortly by Singapore Airlines and Transavia.


If you would like to check our API documentation, or simply ask some initial questions about our Air Travel API, send us an email at contact@flyiin.com.
