Yandex Travel now has fare conditions for flights. For example, you can see how much a non-refundable or refundable ticket costs, but without luggage. You no longer need to go to the carrier’s website for this information. Users can directly on the service compare the fares of different airlines and choose the right one.
Head of Yandex Travel, Irina Reider, has been quoted:
Usually, people choose a fare at the time of buying a ticket and do not see all the variety of options. And now they will be able to compare fare conditions already at the stage of searching for tickets and choose the best one. This is especially convenient for those who want to have the freedom of action and the ability to cancel a trip if circumstances change.
There is a separate filter for purchasing tickets that includes luggage. For example, you can quickly find tickets to Sochi with luggage and a minimum return fee – in case you want to stay at sea. The service shows the fares even if the round trips are operated by different carriers.
Yandex Travel has fare conditions for all the most popular airlines, including Aeroflot, Pobeda, Ural Airlines, Red Wings, S7, Utair and others. They account for about 80% of domestic and international flights. Data is transmitted to the service both by the carriers themselves and by ticket booking services.
In April Yandex Travel launched an affiliate program for webmasters, bloggers, and website, and mobile app owners. They can place a link or a promotional code for booking hotels and receive up to 8% of the amount of each attracted order.
