Hahn Air, a German scheduled and executive
charter airline as well as a leading provider of ticketing and
distribution solutions for other airlines and travel agencies, is
celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
As part of the celebrations, the company
is visiting seven different cities around world and hosting a
thank you party for its most valued travel agent partners and
As the company was in Bangkok,
Thailand last night, Steven Howard of TravelNewsAsia.com took the
opportunity to sit down with Jörg Troester, Head of Corporate
Strategy, Industry and Government Affairs, and ask him what the
20th anniversary means to Hahn Air, why they chose to host
one of the seven parties in Bangkok - as they do have an office in Manila and New Delhi, and
how important the Asia Pacific region is to the company.
We discuss airline distribution and why NDC
(New Distribution Capability) is so important to airlines and
travel agents, how it will help both increase revenue, how it affects Hahn Air, and what role the company
is playing in this new system.
Steven asks Jörg whether Hahn Air has any
plans to open more offices in the region, what he believes the
future holds for the industry, and what he thinks we should learn from Thomas Cook's collapse. All that and
much more in the HD video and podcast below.
