Routehappy Partners with Skyscanner to Pilot Flight Scores and Flight Amenities

Routehappy announced an agreement with Skyscanner to pilot Flight Scores and Flight Amenities from Routehappy's Scores & Amenities API, into flight shopping results in its flights app. The integration will allow Skyscanner app users in a number of markets to see and compare amenities by flight and cabin. Routehappy's Flight Scores are an objective overall measure of aircraft, seat, layout, amenities, and relative duration. Routehappy's Flight Amenities make it easy for flyers to understand key differences between flights, including aircraft, seat, layout, entertainment, Wi-Fi and fresh food. Both can be easily integrated into flight shopping results using Routehappy's API. Skyscanner will also have access to the Routehappy Hub API, from which it can integrate standardized rich content provided by airlines, in the form of UTAs (Universal Ticket Attributes) and UPAs (Universal Product Attributes). UTAs are structured ticket attributes that tell flyers what is included in a fare from a list of twelve categories, such as advance seat selection, boarding priority and cancellation policy. UPAs are structured product merchandising attributes that show flyers airline-provided highlights of the travel experience, including terminal, seat, entertainment and food offerings.
