Spirit Airlines is making it easier for travel agents to assist their clients by adding the option to check bags directly through their GDS. Agency partners are now able to offer their clients the option to book one checked and/or carry-on bag through the booking creation process.

“We are excited to give our travel agency partners — and thus our mutual customers — an even more user-friendly and streamlined experience when booking travel on Spirit,” said Rich Lowry, Spirit’s director of distribution and sales strategy. “Customers who pre-reserve their bags during the booking process save time compared to those who wait until they arrive at the airport, making this a great value-added service that our travel agency partners can offer their clients. It’s a win-win for everyone.” www.spirit.com/agent
