Online travel program targets tourist railroads

The Train Chartering Company Ltd. recently signed an agreement with FS2 Ltd. to develop and operate BSP ONElink, an e-commerce system designed to distribute travel-related products and services to travel agents, and settles payment between travel agents and suppliers.

Developed with International Air Transport Association (IATA) and technology partners, BSP ONElink enables non-air travel suppliers to access 55,000 IATA-accredited travel agencies and 45,000 leisure-based non-IATA certified travel agencies worldwide.

The program will enable Train Chartering to offer tourist railroads a web-based system to post products for travel agents. Train Chartering also plans to use BSP ONElink to provide railroads access to IATA travel agencies.

Tourist trains, rail tours and historic steam railways are expected to benefit from the program, according to a prepared statement. BSP ONElink also can help railroads with online booking.
