GO7 | February 22, 2023
On February 21, 2023, Sansa Airlines (SANSA), a domestic airline in Costa Rica, partnered with GO7 to enhance its inventory management, passenger experience, distribution, and growth support across multiple channels. Through the partnership, it will use GO7's AeroCRS solution for reservations, flight or fare management technology and inventory management.
GO7 is a travel technology company dedicated to the travel brand's transformation, supporting SANSA's growth and distribution strategies across the Central American region. With its support, the airlines would improve its services, providing more passenger options. In addition, it will enhance the company's agility in response to the demand trends. This integration has resulted in the relaunch of the airlines' travel service between San Jose and Managua in 2022 and an expected new connection to Panama in 2023.
SANSA has selected GO7's AeroCRS solution, replacing its previous passenger service system with more modernized modular technology stack services. This replacement has made it more flexible with its travel routes, advanced passenger service and capacity. It deploys the AeroCRS solution as an online distribution platform for its flight inventory, making it more visible for online travel agencies (OTAs) and metasearch engines, accelerating its customer reach. The solution supports its growth strategy and establishes it as a more reliable airline in Central America.
Managing Partner of SANSA, Julio Caballero, said, "Partnering with GO7 complements our growth and expansion plans perfectly." He added, "Throughout the onboarding and implementation process, our team has enjoyed exemplary communication with the GO7 team; they've listened to all our needs and delivered solutions, and the training process was thorough and efficient. We look forward to growing our operation and increasing passenger volume with the help of GO7's purpose-built and unique solutions."
