Furthermore, passengers now have the possibility to book WESTbahn through various online travel agencies. Dr. Erich Forster, WESTbahn’s CEO, said: “This unique collaboration is helping us gain truly global exposure”. Hahn Air’s step towards intermodal transportation will be taken even further according to the company’s Executive Vice President Simon Riha. He has revealed that “many more high-speed train connections to GDS airline displays are to be introduced, providing travel agents with seamless booking process and passengers with smooth travel experience”. Hahn Air, which operates the industry’s leading universtal e-ticketing platform, has already implemented agreements with more than 250 airlines worldwide
