Hahn Air’s award cer­e­mony saw in pres­ence Den­nis Huk, Vice Pres­i­dent—Global Ac­count Man­age­ment, Hahn Air and San­jay Shri­vas­tava, Di­rec­tor— Ac­count Man­age­ment for North­ern In­dia, Hahn Air. In­dia’s Di­rec­tors of Global Ac­count Man­age­ment, Bharat Kapoor and Za­far Shamsi, were also present at the event. More than 150 travel agents at­tended the cer­e­mony in which Hahn Air awarded 21 cer­tifi­cates of ap­pre­ci­a­tion and nine ‘ Martin Awards’ for top agen­cies, ap­pre­ci­at­ing them for their con­tin­ued sup­port and growth. In­dia has be­come one of the Hahn Air, which has be­come the lead­ing tick­et­ing spe­cial­ist across the sub-con­ti­nent. Shri­vas­tava gave a prod­uct pre­sen­ta­tion of the air­line’s of­fer­ings fol­lowed by an ad­dress by Huk, where he thanked the travel part­ners of the re­gion and pre­sented awards to them. “We want to ap­pre­ci­ate the agen­cies, ser­vice providers and our sup­port­ers in the mar­ket. We are work­ing with all IATA ac­cred­ited agents with no dif­fer­en­ti­a­tion,” he said. Speak­ing on the side­lines of the event, Huk re­vealed Hahn Air’s strat­egy world­wide and for the In­dian mar­ket. “We are fur­ther ex­pand­ing and look­ing for new part­ners to in­crease our port­fo­lio of air­lines. Last year, we im­ple­mented 46 new part­ners to our net­work and we’ll con­tinue to do so. We have al­ready im­ple­mented many new part­ners this year, es­pe­cially on our H1 Air ser­vices. H1 Air is our distri­bu­tion ser­vice for air­lines, which do not par­tic­i­pate in the GDS,” he said. When asked about the In­ter­na­tional Air Trans­port As­so­ci­a­tion’s (IATA) New Distri­bu­tion Ca­pa­bil­ity (NDC) tech­ni­cal stan­dard and how Hahn Air is adapt­ing to the same, Huk said, “It will be in­ter­est­ing to see how the new pay­ments so­lu­tions from IATA will in­crease the travel agent net­work. We are look­ing into with IATA and all the work­ing costs in­volved. We are also look­ing at providers, be­cause multi-tick­et­ing in the in­dus­try and how to com­bine sev­eral air­lines will be an in­ter­est­ing part to watch out for.” In terms of an­cil­lary ser­vices, Huk said that they have Elec­tronic Mis­cel­la­neous Doc­u­ment (EMD) prod­ucts. “We al­ready have some part­ners for which we of­fer EMDs for seat reser­va­tion, ex­cess bag­gage, etc, and have plans to in­crease that. With NDC, we are only eval­u­at­ing things,” he said. Shar­ing their agenda to ex­pand the agent and air­line net­work in In­dia, he said, “We are al­ready work­ing with the top play­ers in In­dia with all the ma­jor air­lines in In­dia on our sys­tem, in­clud­ing Air In­dia and Jet Air­ways. SpiceJet is also on H1 Air. We are al­ways in talks with air­lines. Our big break­through has been the re­cently-signed agree­ment with Aus­trian Air­lines.”
