ZUJI rolls out 'flexible date search' for flights on its OTA sites

ZUJI rolls out 'flexible date search' for flights on its OTA sites in Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong and India.

Increased conversion and branding opportunities for airlines as a result.

Online travel agency (OTA) ZUJI has introduced a flexible date search option for flight bookings on its core Asia Pacific sites as a new service for customers and ZUJI's supplier airlines.

The +/- 3-day-view reveals available flight options for the three days before and after the preferred date of travel, providing travellers with a 'simple' table showing multiple airline and flight options.

As a result, airlines using ZUJI sites for distribution have much greater opportunity to highlight:

-        their weekday, and off peak travel flight options (where fares may be cheaper, and more appealing to travellers with flexible travel plans).

-        flight options on alternate days, which is especially important for carriers which do not operate daily flights.

-        their brand and consistently competitive fares, as carrier logos appear when the fare is scrolled-over for all dates of travel displayed on the calendar grid.


The flexible date search, or 'calendar shopping', service for flights has been introduced under the 'flight tab' on the following OTA sites in Asia Pacific:

ZUJI Australia
ZUJI Singapore
ZUJI Hong Kong
Travelocity India


Beyond the flight calendar path feature, ZUJI's 'TripSaver' technology offers an opaque way for airlines and hotels to market and promote their product to travellers. This 'dynamic packaging' feature was introduced to the above ZUJI sites earlier this year as part of its investment in serving suppliers and travellers great online travel experiences, despite the downturn.
