“We assemble information from several sources. This is a complicated product with a combination of different databases in real time. Soon it will be possible to choose between included and excluded baggage rates in search results on Aviasales”, explains CEO Max Kraynov.
According to the survey, conducted by Aviasales, 30% of passengers used to pay for a luggage in the airport because of the information lack. Different airlines have different baggage fees and tourists don’t know what is included in their ticket price.
Besides, a ticket with an only hand luggage is not always the cheapest one. For instance, the cheapest one-way ticket from Vladivostok to Seoul with S7 Airlines costs 113 EUR and for a suitcase up to 23kg you have to pay 25 euros more. Although, Aeroflot offers the same day flight with a 20kg free of charge luggage for 127 EUR, which is 8% less! So with an Aviasales' new service a passenger can choose a carrier with the best conditions.
Earlier in July 2016 the low price calendar appeared on Aviasales front page. It shows the approximate cost of tickets during selecting trip dates. This service works due to cooperation with multinational IT provider for the global travel and tourism industry Amadeus.
