Sky Bird Travel & Tours Unveils Opteticket for Travel Agents


Southfield, MI – Sky Bird Travel & Tours is excited to unveil the first of many new features developed for the Sky Bird Platform. Opteticket is a multi-GDS solution designed to gain end-to-end control, reduce errors, and speed up ticketing for agents who prefer to book with a GDS.


Opteticket streamlines the ticketing process for GDS bookings by performing automated tests and checks of the PNRs, and it grants travel agents greater control over how commission and agency fees are collected, eliminating the time-consuming exchange of information with the agency. Opteticket is being launched on Amadeus and Sabre with Travelport to follow.


“Time is money. We understand the importance of efficiency in the travel industry, especially for our valued travel agent partners, and this represents the first of many investments that we are making to improve the quality of service and efficiency for our partners and their customers,” said Norman Knowles, CEO at Sky Bird Travel & Tours. “With Opteticket, we aim to enhance their end-to-end booking experience significantly, allowing our travel agent partners to focus on delivering exceptional service to their agents.”
