Navigate Winter Holiday Flight Disruptions with INTT ADVISOR: Support for Independent Travel Agents and Advisors This Holiday Season


As the holiday season approaches, we recognize the potential impact of unpredictable weather on your clients’ travel plans, making strategic planning crucial to mitigate the effects of weather-induced delays.


In the domain of air travel, weather emerges as a significant contributor to flight delays, as confirmed by the Bureau of Transportation Statistics.In 2020, approximately 38% of all U.S. flight delays were attributed to weather-related factors, emphasizing the necessity of proactive measures to address nationwide disruptions. Our blog sheds light on how INTT ADVISOR can be your essential tool for effectively managing disruptions caused by weather. Explore the advanced features that position INTT ADVISOR as your indispensable ally in ensuring a seamless and professional travel experience for your clients. Weather delays during the holiday season can be a significant issue for travelers due to several reasons:


  • Limited Availability of Alternate Flights

During peak holiday times, flights are often fully booked. If a flight is delayed or canceled due to weather, finding available seats on alternate flights becomes challenging. This can result in longer wait times or difficulties securing new arrangements.


  • Tight Schedules and Commitments

Many travelers during the holiday season have tight schedules, including family gatherings, events, or specific plans. Weather delays can interfere with these commitments, causing inconvenience and stress for travelers who may have limited flexibility in their plans.


  • Impact on Special Occasions

The holiday season is a time for celebrations and special occasions. Weather-related disruptions can jeopardize travel plans for events like family reunions, weddings, or holiday parties, causing disappointment for both travelers and those expecting their arrival.
