Cobalt Air joins BSP in the UK

Cobalt Air has joined IATA’s Billing Settlement Plan (BSP) in the UK, effective immediately, enabling all IATA accredited travel agents to sell and issue Cobalt Air tickets.

BSP facilitates and significantly simplifies the selling, reporting and remitting procedures of IATA Accredited passenger sales agents.

The move brings Cobalt, which has quickly grown to become Cyprus’ largest airline in under two years, on track to carry over 700,000 passengers this year on its 21-strong route network, ever closer to the important travel agency community. Four of those routes are from the UK, with 20 flights a week this summer to Cyprus and Greece.

“We are delighted to take BSP live in the UK, which brings us even closer to the travel trade and our customers,” says Paul Simmons, CCO of Cobalt Air. “Now, hundreds of IATA accredited travel agencies all over the UK will be able to sell and issue electronic tickets on our domestic, European and Middle East network.  We have more exciting initiatives coming up in the near future to further enhance our offering to our passengers.”

Cobalt Air is already on the Sabre Global Distribution System and is currently working to join AMADEUS GDS within the next few weeks.
