MSC Cruises Chooses New Preferred Airfare Partner

MSC Cruises recently partnered with ISS Global Marine Travel (ISS GMT) as its preferred provider for affordable airfares. Under the new partnership, agents can now compare and confirm both contract and published fares on MSC for their FIT clients using GMT’s online CruiseLink program.

ISS GMT specializes in providing both published and special negotiated airfares to accommodate agents’ clients to and from their cruise destination. To use the new program, travel agents must register online. Also, agents are now able to establish their own booking service charge with the potential to boost their revenues.

“We are very excited about this partnership with ISS GMT. It provides a service to our agency partners that brings added value by offering the best airfare choice for their clients and the ability to add revenue to their bottom line,” said MSC’s Jim Henwood, senior vice president of passenger services.
MSC Cruises’ representatives will continue to assist travel agents with MSC Yacht Club bookings and special group requests.
