AirPlus Ancillary Fee Reports Bring Clarity For Customers Frustrated By Airline Fees

ALEXANDRIA, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AirPlus International, Inc., a leading global provider of corporate travel payment solutions, launches today the AirPlus Ancillary Fee Reports. Hundreds of different airline fees are summarized into a series of reports exclusively for AirPlus customers in the USA. AirPlus is the first payment provider to launch such a tool and AirPlus Corporate Card customers can receive the reports on a monthly basis. Visit www.airplus.com or email ancillaryfeereports@airplus.com for more information.

“AirPlus has been an outspoken leader in helping the industry better understand the dynamic reality of airline fees. With this new set of reports, we can now also provide our customers with the clarity and information they need to better manage the ancillary fees and charges”

The reports bring transparency and clarity to an issue that has caused confusion in the industry and have been well received thus far by AirPlus test customers. One such customer, Kobie Whisenant, Corporate Travel Manager from Gambro Renal Products, agrees, “The reports give me a better idea of what we should be budgeting for airfare because now I can see what we are paying for bags, upgrades, etc. I can rely on this report’s credibility rather than hoping our business travelers remember to code the charges correctly on their expense report.”

Customers may utilize these reports for budgeting purposes, as well as focusing in on the adherence to company travel policy. Ms. Whisenant confirms, “These reports will absolutely become part of our budgeting process. It will also help us to control our corporate travel policy and address those that are in violation of our policy. Further, I will share these reports with my boss, the CFO and the President of our company.”

“AirPlus has been an outspoken leader in helping the industry better understand the dynamic reality of airline fees. With this new set of reports, we can now also provide our customers with the clarity and information they need to better manage the ancillary fees and charges,” said Richard Crum, President of AirPlus International, Inc. “Reports from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics show approximately $3.4 billion in baggage and change fees charged by US airlines last year. AirPlus recognized that customers need our help to get a handle on what charges their travelers are incurring. We are pleased to be the first corporate card issuer to offer such a solution.”
