(LONDON) - British SKY2Plc.com launches a travel intelligence based online Global Distribution System (GDS) for Iraq, Afghanistan and other high volatile countries.

Sky2 Plc has launched a new online travel service platform for the corporate, government & security world devoted to security sensitive countries such as Iraq & Afghanistan. The new service will appeal not only to corporate travellers but also to local & foreign based travel agents as well as specialist groups like armed close-protection teams. With the current unrest in the Middle East Sky2Plc.com offers direct customers & travel agents up to date travel intelligence in the highest of risk areas.

The project is a great example of a British company integrating its travel management and technical experience into emerging travel markets in order to develop a modern day travel intelligence based airline consolidation & GDS business.

The Sky2 Plc platform is a combined venture operated by an airline distribution consultancy (Cap-Man Logistics Ltd), an IATA corporate travel management company (Statesman Travel Ltd) and a travel technology specialist (Dataflexnet Ltd), with the overall project headed up by Chief Executive Officer Nick Rowley.

“After living and working in Iraq for 4.5 years from 2005 it became very apparent that an opportunity existed to start with a clean slate in the travel distribution market of these high wealth, high volume virgin markets. It’s a matter of understanding and managing the risks in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen and other high security or politically sensitive areas; along with being able to build a secure airline technology platform to host and manage local inventory, whilst integrating it with the rest of the developed world. Britain has some of the best available security minded management and technology to implement a project like this,” said Rowley.

“In Iraq this project alone will make a considerable and positive impact for the travel community. We will significantly ease the booking process for corporate travellers involved in security, government, reconstruction and development work, as well as for Iraqi nationals looking to explore outbound travel to the rest of the world. Due to the countries and additional ‘special’ services we offer our client base is varied and some of the most sensitive in UK, Europe & USA. The responsibilities which occur when an airline cancels a flight in Palma or Tenerife aren’t quite the same as when a customer gets stranded in Baghdad, Kabul, Tehran, etc; this requires specialists who understand the market and can act on it quickly 24/7.”

The www.Sky2Plc.com website will provide corporate customers and Iraq/Afghanistan travel agents with access to a number of local airlines and GDS content, thus being the only site on the Internet to offer a complete mix of multi-sector airline content from this region. In order to provide travel agents and other third-party distributors with a BSP style payment solution, Sky2 Plc has developed a platform designed with the local markets in mind. The payment system will reduce risks for the airlines in these high risk countries and thus extend the scope of their operations.
