Medview Airline, took a step further in its plan to vigorously expand and transform its operations domestically, regionally and internationally at the weekend, as it joins the league of airlines using the Billing (Bank) Settlement Plan ( BSP) to offer both passengers and travel partners seamless booking and payment system.

BSP is an electronic billing system designed to facilitate the flow of data and funds between travel agencies and airlines.

 

At the Nigeria High Commission premises in Accra, where a programme was held to drive home the essence of BSP, Medview trade partners in Ghana were also gathered to a feast where they were told that henceforth, they would get 5% commission on domestic and regional tickets and get 9% on international tickets sold.

 

Capt. Godfrey Ogbogu, head of flight operations at Medview, who represented Alhj. Muneer Bankole, managing director of the airline,  in his welcome address, disclosed that barely one year after they commenced operations into Accra, the airline has added another milestone on that route.

 

He said the BSP will go a long way in transforming the way the travel agents and travellers do business with them, adding that Accra is only a stepping stone towards opening up networks and markets in West Coast.

 

“We have a sustained operations into London Gatwick and Jeddah, we will be doing more of that soon, the market is gradually expanding, apart from Lagos, Medview regards Accra as its home, we place so much premium in cultivating relationship across economic lines, especially with the travel and trade partners.

 

“We want to cultivate a partnership that is open to exploring more frontiers, that is mutually beneficial, that is the way to grow. The trade partners had been a good support all the way and that is why we will continue to be partners”, he said.

 

In his presentation, Azeez Abass, Senior Agency Manager, said assures the partners and travellers that Medview will live up to its values, vision and mission.

 

 

He said the airline currently pursuing a fleet expansion programme that will see its fleet increased astronomically from its present seven.

“We operate over 40 flights per week, we have over 14 approvals to Accra, we are pursuing a rigorous fleet expansion plan that will take us far, by July this year, we will take delivery of another B737-800 apart from others that will see us expanding our international operations.

 

He also told the partners that they will get 5 percent on tickets sold on domestic and regional routes and 9 percent on international tickets.

 

“Accra is very important to us, we have concluded plans to operate to Dakar, Monrovia and Freetown via Accra any moment from May. We’ve reinforced our frequencies by up to 30 percent compare to 2015. We have also finalised our IOSA, we will get certified by May 2016, he said.

 

Abass disclosed further that apart from Ghana, the BSP is already on in Nigeria and Saudi Arabia, adding that Medview has almost concluded with the implementation of Amadeus solutions for its General Sales Agent.

 

“We are also studying that of Sabre and Galileo but with BSP, payment plans become seamless”, added.
