Contrary to what many people may think, business air travel doesn't necessarily have to cost a fortune. Currently there exist a number of
Internet-based travel agencies offering affordable business class fares on different routes to destinations worldwide. One of them is Best
Flights, regarded as one of the most innovative retail travel companies in Australia and a major supplier of discounted business class fares. Since its inception, the company has been working to offer the best service to its customers at the lowest fares. And despite the fact Best Flights has certain live booking tools, it stills regards a travel site as a marketing tool that should be treated like a daily magazine and continually updated. As a totally independent agency, Best Flights is free to offer the traveling public more extensive selection of airlines, wholesalers and discounted business class fares.
The commitment to excellence in its services and sales has led the company to receiving a number of awards, notably Contiki Holidays Top Agency Award 2005, Creative Star Performer 2005, Qantas Platinum Club 2005, Trafalgar Champion Agency Award 2006, P&Q Outstanding Sales Achievement 2005, Cunard Silver Member of the Inner Circle Club 2006 and Trafalgar Champion Agency Award 2006.
Recognized as one of most progressive airline in Europe with over six decades aviation experience, Icelandair is a custom-oriented travel
agency offering high-value services and products. It currently serves over 23 gateways in Europe and the United States, featuring a wide variety of services at affordable prices.
The biggest operating unit of the company is its international airline Icelandair which operates its Icelandair Customer Club to establish and strengthen relationship with the most valuable clients. Operated by Icelandair Customer Club is a Frequent Flyer Program designed primarily for business travelers who can earn and redeem points with the airline and its partner companies. The most frequent flyers are rewarded and upgraded to Saga Silver and Saga Gold memberships. Due to this program corporate travelers have now a unique opportunity to enjoy special business class fares and a variety of discounts and special offers before and during the flight. One of the most successful online travel agencies, 1stAir has recently introduced special Around the World fares offering flights with One World Alliance partners, American Airlines, British Airways and Cathay Pacific for travel between the United States, Europe and Asia.
In addition to essential savings, one more advantage of the fare is that it requires only one stopover, as compared to traditional three stopovers. However, the greatest benefit of purchasing Around the World as a Passport Premiere member is the opportunity to take advantage of the off-shore ticketing and originate itinerary outside of the United States, from the country that is frequented by you. Regardless of your itinerary, the company is able to offer cheap business class fares as compared to what can be purchased from each alliance directly.
