Hahn Air’s sister companies bring 100 partner airlines to GDSs worldwide


Dreieich, 26th September 2023. Air Mediterranean from Greece is the 100th partner airline that will be available in all Global Distribution Systems (GDSs) through a single contract with a sister company of distribution specialist Hahn Air. The products H1-Air by Hahn Air Systems and X1-Air by Hahn Air Technologies enable airlines to offer their flights in Amadeus, Sabre, Travelport and further major GDSs under the codes H1 and X1, respectively, thereby reaching 100,000 travel agents in 190 markets.

The portfolio of partners sub-hosted under the codes H1 and X1 includes airlines from 67 countries and six continents. Among the 100 partners are low-cost carriers such as fastjet, regional carriers such as TAR Aerolineas and innovative start-ups like Aerus. Together, Hahn Air Systems and Hahn Air Technologies add 1,000 routes between 487 destinations and nearly 140,000 flights to the GDSs airline content available to travel agents worldwide.

Among the H1-Air and X1-Air connections offered are routes as short as 75 kilometres (Bonaire to Curacao served by Divi Divi Air) and as long as 7,900 kilometres (Madrid to Cancun served by World2Fly) in distance. Low-cost airline Volaris from Mexico boasts the largest route network with 228 routes and 68 destinations. Passengers traveling with an H1-Air or X1-Air partner may find themselves boarding any size of aircraft – from the Airbus A350-900 holding 350 seats operated by World2Fly to a Cessna C208 with nine seats operated by Safarilink and ideal for landing on the dusty airstrips of the safari parks.

“We are proud that our solutions H1-Air and X1-Air are in great demand among airlines and make a huge difference in their distribution by delivering incremental revenue”, says Adriana C. Carrelli, Vice President Airline Business at Hahn Air. “Whether our partners want to reach secondary markets, expand their target groups or even outsource their entire GDS distribution to Hahn Air, our products perfectly complement every airline’s distribution strategy. For travel agents, this is a huge advantage as H1-Air and X1-Air allow them to conveniently book flights in their GDSs that were previously inaccessible.”

German airline Hahn Air has been specialising in distribution solutions for other carriers since 1999. In addition to the 100 partners gaining GDS access through Hahn Air’s sister companies Hahn Air Systems and Hahn Air Technologies, the Hahn Air portfolio includes more than 270 interline partners.
