Flight Module

Do we need IATA Approval to use Flight module?
The application has no relation with IATA. By default the Flight modules of PhpHolidays application does not make real-time reservation until you integrate GDS (Global Distribution System). Therefore it is up to your business plan to get IATA approval or not, but you can still use this application to collect order from customer.

Does flight module of PhpHolidays order for real-time reservation?
NO ! By default it doesn't go for real-time reservation. If you want to make real-time reservation online, you can hire our professional developer to integrate PhpHolidays with your GDS (Global Distribution System).

How does a Flight module of PhpHolidays helps me for Air Ticket reservation?
The main goal / aim of this module is to allow your customer to order for route he/she wants to fly and quote according to your price (that you preset). For better understanding please follow the below example:

Example Route : London New York (One way)
Air Berlin STN → DUS → JFK USD $799
US Airways LHR → PHL → LGA USD $859
Aer Lingus LHR → DUB → JFK USD $670
As shown above, you can customize the routes and price based on Airline. When a user search for London – New York route, the pre-configured routes with price will be displayed to take order. If users book a route an invoice will be created for desired routes with price which you have set previously. Both admin and user will have access to Itinerary and process accordingly.

If you were to hire a skilled, local developer they should be able to make any modifications you need in order for our product to satisfy your project requirements."

How Flight module make reservation with NO GDS (Global Distribution System) support?
By default, Air Ticket reservation system is divided into two sub-modules.
  1. Local database driven reservation system
  2. API Driven reservation system.


Local database driven reservation system:

Under the local database reservation system, all airlines, routes and price information are stored in local database. When users search for a destination routes for booking, it checks in local database if it match with any of predefine route to display. If it finds a route matches with your database, it displays to take booking, creates invoice and takes the order right away. If customer search does not match with your database routes it still try to bring you into business and ask user/visitor to quote for desired routes. You may manually contact with customer later on to quote and sell tickets.

Therefore in short, all airlines, flights routes and price information are stored and search from local database. If search matches, the system will ask to order otherwise urge to quote for searched destination to create a potential leads.

API Driven reservation system. In the API based reservation system all airlines, routes, start time, arrival time are displayed real time through the API. By default, PhpHoliday application supports WeGo.com API to render result of flight's search information. If customer search does not match with your database routes it still take a note and ask user to quote for desired routes.

Therefore in short, the API based reservation system displays real time status of available airlines, routes, start time, arrival time (through Wego.com API) etc and invite customer to order and create invoice. Most importantly, it also search into local database for predefine routes to know the pricing in order display on invoice. If application does not have match, it still try to create lead for you allowing client to ask for quote on desired routes. You may manually contact with customer later on to quote and sell tickets.

By Default, How many API(s) do you support for flight reservation and what are they?
By default, we support 02 (two) APIs for Air flight booking. There are :

  1. WeGo.com Api Docs : http://www.wego.com/api/flights/docs
  2. ExpediaAffiliate.com Api Docs : http://developer.ean.com


How it takes order and creates invoice for us?
Both database driven and API driven version, it always checks whether customer's searches routes with desired airlines matches with your predefined routes set for pricing. If it matches, customer will be invoiced for the price you pre set otherwise PHPholidays allowed customer to ask for custom quotation for desired route(s). It means if the customer searched route and carrier does not match with your pricing, you still have opportunity to quote him/her manually and it tries to keep you in the business.
