Travelport's new Search Control Console allows travel agencies to create custom flight searches using more than 35 rules and parameters.
The web-based solution allows agents to, for example, "prohibit a connection point for a set time period if the area has been affected by a volcanic ash cloud or another natural disaster," according to Travelport.
The company also indicated that corporate travel agencies could use the feature to prioritize preferred suppliers. The console is available for Apollo, Galileo and Worldspan users worldwide.
