The Critical Importance of Opening Window Shades During Plane Descents

Have you ever wondered why flight attendants always ask window seat passengers to open their shades during a plane’s descent? Well, it turns out there are several reasons, and they’re pretty important!

According to Mercedes Zach, a travel expert at Asaptickets, opening the window shades during descent is critical for both passengers and cabin crew. In the event of an emergency landing, having the shades open can help emergency staff to see inside the plane and assess the situation, while passengers can locate exits more easily. 

But that’s not all – there are other benefits too. As the plane gets closer to the ground, the outside light gets brighter, and sudden changes in lighting conditions can cause disorientation or even nausea for those sensitive to light. “By gradually adjusting to the changing light levels, passengers can reduce the likelihood of experiencing these symptoms“, says Zach.

And there’s more! By adjusting to natural light during descent, passengers may even be able to lessen the effects of jet lag. “When flying at high altitudes, the sun’s rays can be much stronger than at ground level, even if it’s cloudy outside”, says Zach. Plus, if you’re a tourist, opening your window shade during turbulence can help you relax and take in the view. 

So, the next time you’re asked to open your shade, remember – it’s for your own safety. And who knows, you might even catch a glimpse of something amazing!

Trevolution Group to introduce NDC by early 2023

Trevolution Group partners with AirGateway, a world-leading NDC aggregator, which will provide access to aggregated NDC content of 25+ airlines, including several major airlines.

Trevolution Group, which operates International Travel Network (ITN), Asaptickets, Skyluxtravel, and other travel brands, announces the implementation of new distribution capabilities (NDC) in its airline ticket distribution. The company has signed a contract with the API provider AirGateway.

NDC is a travel industry standard used by airlines, aggregators, and travel sellers for distributing and selling flight content. It uses modern web technologies that allow consolidators to connect directly to the airline, which results in the ability for product differentiation, better personalization, transparency, and cost-cutting. While the traditionally used global distribution system (GDS) model only permits airlines to display prices and schedules, the NDC standard provides real-time information.

According to Peter Vazan, CEO of International Travel Network, part of Trevolution Group, NDC is the future of travel. “The benefits of using NDC content are clear – it allows for control, pricing, and inventory ability, and with NDC, we will be able to give real-time offers to passengers at a cheaper rate. This, however, requires significant infrastructure investment. We are ready to invest in the future.”

Trevolution Group partners with AirGateway, a world-leading NDC aggregator, which will provide access to aggregated NDC content of 25+ airlines, including several major airlines. “While doing so, by early 2023 we will be able to provide our clients with more customized offers. We estimate to facilitate over 180,000 bookings within the first year alone and aim to strategically grow our NDC portfolio,” Vazan added.

Jorge Díaz, CEO of AirGateway, commented: “We really think that due to the complex nature of the consolidation business, Trevolution Group will get full advantage of our platform’s technical capabilities as a next-gen NDC aggregator. Now that NDC is becoming a serious topic in the US market, this is a great way to start.”

Holiday bookings up between US, Cebu

TOURISTS are indeed returning with a vengeance.

A recent study by Trevolution Group revealed that travel reservations made between the United States and Cebu, Philippines in December 2022 and January 2023 have already reached 70 percent of the reservations made during the same period in 2019-2020.

“The first quarter of the year is traditionally the peak time for the Philippines tourism season, and the current outlook for the upcoming months is strong. Every third ticket from the United States to the Philippines is booked during the first three months of the year,” Peter Vazan, chief executive officer of ITN, a company that is affiliated with the Trevolution Group, said in a statement.

Vazan said the winter holiday season remains the busiest time for visiting friends and relatives each year. He said that “the changing booking patterns may mean more passengers will book their flights only weeks away from the holiday, but it likely won’t make it possible to reach the 2019 traffic levels.”

The top US airports, from which passengers have booked flights to Cebu for the winter holiday period are Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Chicago and Seattle.

Trevolution Group has established itself as the market leader in the travel business, specializing in the visiting friends and relatives segment. Over 70,000 airline tickets and vacation packages are sold by Trevolution monthly, which makes it the fifth-largest travel consolidator in the US. It incorporates the travel businesses of the Dyninno Group of companies, which provides products and services in the finance, travel and entertainment sectors.

The resurgence of travel both international and domestic has been boosted by the easing of travel restrictions around the globe.

Earlier, the United Nations World Tourism Organization says international tourism is on track to reach 65 percent of pre-pandemic levels by the end of 2022 as the sector continues to bounce back from the pandemic.

An estimated 700 million tourists traveled internationally between January and September, more than double (+133 percent) the number recorded for the same period in 2021. This equates to 63 percent of 2019 levels.
