Would you like to name your own price?

Charge service fees with confidence via our exclusive NYOP® product. NYOP® gives you total control of your pricing, enabling you to generate e-ticket itineraries with YOUR final sell price on the client's customised e-ticket receipt.

Robotic Ticketing

As more of our customers grow their online presence and bring booking capability to their websites, we have developed Robotic Ticketing. This technology issues your clients’ tickets as they complete their online booking on your site within seconds; any time 24/7, 365 days a year.

Robotic Ticketing is ideal for medium to high volume agencies that are looking to increase efficiencies and reduce costs. If you can queue a PNR, you can use Smart Queue Ticketing – it’s that easy! Our Robot will take care of the rest, automatically issuing your ticket and emailing the itinerary/e-ticket back to you. Best of all it is GDS neutral, accurate with a no ADM guarantee* and it is fully integrated with SmartTickets® – allowing you to view your issued tickets and process reissues, revalidations, cancellations and refunds via SmartTickets® Online.

To enquire about your eligibility or suitability for Robotic ticketing please contact our sales team.

Acting as Merchant

New Payment Option

Air Tickets provides an optional credit card merchant facility for our customers’ ticketing convenience.

By choosing the Air Tickets merchant option, you may incorporate a NYOP fee/charge of up to 25% of the value of your ticket. Refunds also allow you to include your same fee/charge to be deducted from the card reimbursement, rather than paying for a commission recall.

Our Story

Back in 1949, three entrepreneurial Melbourne men recognised a need in the market for a consolidator to distribute international airfares, and issue tickets, on behalf of the airlines. Together they launched and operated Concorde Travel and set the path for the growth of air consolidation in Australia.

38 years on in 1987, British Airways took a 50% share in the company and continued to work with our Melbourne Gents until 2002.

A number of acquisitions and mergers followed over the years with the Air Tickets® brand being introduced in 2009.

Today Air Tickets® is part of Helloworld Limited (ASX: HLO), an integrated travel business operating franchise based and affiliated retail agency networks, several wholesale outbound & inbound travel, air ticket consolidation, airline representation and travel management services.

Helloworld Limited has operations in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Greece.
