Thanks to our new update, you can now also book and manage return flights for superintendents, engineers and technical staff travelling on marine fares.
In the challenging marine and offshore industries, it is not only seafarers who need to travel where duty calls. Flexible marine flights are also required for the needs of superintendents and engineers heading to stationed vessels or offshore site inspections. Also, airlines allow marine fares for technical staff traveling in connection with work on a commercial vessel (for more details on this, make sure to read our enlightening blog post: Are you qualified to travel with marine fares?).
In such cases, travelers can still benefit from the flexibility and competitive prices of marine fares, but also they need to arrange for their return flights in one go. With that in mind, we updated our platform with yet another useful feature.
Then we got great news for you! Our new feature is designed to facilitate the job of travel managers arranging flights for superintendents, engineers and technical staff traveling to vessels.
If you already have an account with C Teleport, you can log in to our platform and go to Office staff flights. Make sure you click on the “Also show Marine flights” check-box. This will allow both marine and public fares to show in search results. Perform your search, just as you would do for crew changes, and select the best option for your travelers’ needs.
Thanks to our new feature you can also associate your booking to a specific vessel. This will come in especially useful when you receive the flight invoice.
At the same time, we are also working on a brand new app designed for travelers booking their own flights. If you are interested to arrange access for superintendents or technical staff booking their own flights, fill in the form below so we can get in touch with you and create new accounts for them.
Using our new app, travelers will be able to search through a wide range of both marine and public fares. Once they find the best flights, they will be able to quickly book departure and return flights in one go. What’s more, our new app allows them to easily manage changes and cancellations without all the hassle of emailing or calling a travel agent or back-office.
Yes, this is as interesting as it sounds.
Happy bookings 🙂
While low-cost airlines do not offer marine fares, they can often be just the right solution to unexpected maritime crew changes or office staff flights, thus helping your budget stay on track.
Marine fares can be very interesting to travel with. It could be an advantage to travel at a lower price or carry more luggage or simply knowing that your flight is fully refundable, just in case. The only catch is: you should be eligible. If you are not eligible to travel on marine fares, you could be denied to enter the flight during the boarding process. Are you wondering whether or not you are qualified to travel with marine fares? Well, maybe this article can help you out.
Startup company C Teleport revolutionizes booking, cancelling and changing flights, with their marine travel app. Their solution, potential and growth have been rather impressive within the past year. It even attracted investors to be part of their expected success and help to accelerate the desired growth.
