Vanguard offers Web deals and 5% pay

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Vanguard Airlines is offering bargain fares to Florida and other points via its Web site at

Vanguard, which pays agents a 5% commission with no cap, will launch Kansas City to Orlando service April 22.

On that date, it offers a $120 Hot Deal roundtrip fare for travelers who leave on the 9 a.m. flight from Kansas City and return April 26 on the 1:20 p.m. flight. The deal is repeated for the April 26 departure and April 30 return.

Even though the fare is bookable only over the Web, travel agents still can earn commission by entering their ARC number on the bottom of the purchase page before submitting the information, according to Shane Nyberg, Vanguard's marketing analyst.

According to Scott Dickson, president and chief executive officer, "Travel agents have been an important part of our successful growth. We plan on being a part of their success and continue to fairly compensate agents for booking Vanguard."

Vanguard also has service to Fort Lauderdale.
