Dohop and London Gatwick said they have launched a new and unique booking service, GatwickConnects, which enables flights from separate airlines connection through Gatwick to be booked in a single transaction.
Gatwick offers a guarantee of service if flights don´t operate as planned.
Previously, connected flights between the participating airlines would have to be booked separately and included the risk of travellers having to buy new flights if the first was delayed. GatwickConnects joins the tickets into a single booking and removes this risk by protecting the connection for the passengers.
The airlines taking part in GatwickConnects are easyJet, WOWair and Norwegian, making up 52 percent of Gatwick´s flight traffic. More airlines are expected to follow.
Dohop is a simple travel comparison website where users search for flight prices from a range of airlines and online travel agencies, along with hotels and rental cars worldwide. The company´s unique Self-Connect technology allows users to see and book flight connections not available anywhere else.
London Gatwick is the UK´s second largest airport and the most efficient single-runway airport in the world. It serves more than 200 destinations in 90 countries for around 38 million passengers a year on short- and long-haul point-to-point services.
