French Connect 2009: 'Lock' your fare with Clickair
Clickair is offering passengers the chance to lock the price of their fares, in exchange for a small charge.
CEO Alex Cruz, announced the new initiative at the French Connect Aviation Forum in Shannon this week, although it was launched on the company's website a fortnight ago.
The scheme allows customers to lock the price of a fare. €2 locks the fare for 24 hours and €5 locks the fare for 72 hours.
Mr Cruz, who will become CEO of the merged Clickair/Vueling in May said the scheme, which is believed to be the first of its kind, would help passengers make up their decide on their travel arrangements and accomodation at their destination, and preserve the low-cost fare they've found.
"Within hours of turning the function on, people were making use of the service," said Cruz.
"Since then we have seen low-five digit figures, and there has been a 60% conversion rate [into a full fare]."
The service is due to be announced officially next week.
