Hauppauge, NY (PRWEB) January 24, 2013
Direct Line Cruises has added an air booking engine to their website, that allows consumers to book flights to worldwide destinations on virtually any airline, at the most competitive fares. The new booking engine simplifies the vacation planning process by giving travelers the ability to shop for flights that will complement their cruise itinerary, without having to leave the Direct Line Cruises website.
For cruise passengers that plan to fly to the port of embarkation, the air booking engine is an alternative to traditional cruise line air/sea programs. It allows travelers complete control over the timing and routing of flights, as well as the ability to select a particular airline because that carrier has nonstop service to the particular port city.
Multiple search options allow travelers to consider surrounding airports, and specify travel preferences such as airline, the number of connections, as well as fare type. They may select any class of service available to their particular destination-economy class, business class or first class.
The booking engine offers clients the ability to reserve their preferred seats through the accessibility of the aircraft’s seat map, (if provided by the airline). In addition, travelers can benefit from airline specific programs such as earning frequent flyer miles.
“As we continue to grow our business, we recognize the importance of providing our clients with an easier and more efficient way to plan their cruise vacation in its entirety,” states Greg Coiro, CEO of Direct Line Cruises, Inc. “With the addition of our air booking engine, the Direct Line Cruises website now gives those clients that prefer to book online, a one-stop shopping experience.”
The new booking engine accepts online credit card payments and customers will receive an electronic ticket confirmation to their email address, issued instantly 24-hours a day, all from the comfort of their home or office.
