American Airlines announced that Vegas.com has become the first AA partner to implement American’s Direct Connect technology. Vegas.com began implementing direct connect five months ago. This enables Vegas.com visitors to view American’s fares and schedules — and eventually customized travel products and services — and easily compare American’s products and services to those of other airlines, AA said.
The data from Direct Connect is transparent – AA’s fares and schedules look the same as what’s available on current global distribution systems (GDSs) — and has been including and will include data from GDSs. The implementation by Vegas.com is another example of how direct connect technology is changing the way products and services are marketed to travelers, according to AA.
Cyllenius technology powers vegas.com, lasvegas.com, espanol.vegas.com and mexico.com, which are also using the AA system. Cyllenius provides a range of products integrated into a proprietary, private-labeled travel shopping cart, including hotel rooms, air-hotel packages, show tickets, nightclub passes, tours and golf.
Vegas.com's contact center provides customer support, expert information and sales 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to complement the information on www.VEGAS.com, www.Lasvegas.com, www.Mexico.com, and espanol.VEGAS.com.
Vegas.com, through its Casino Travel & Tours unit, operates retail and concierge desks at more than 50 locations including the Palms, Paris, Harrah's, Bally's, Excalibur, New York-New York, Luxor and more. The company also offers a variety of excursions including city tours, the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon.
