  • Description

    The Discount Air Travel Company have set up shop in London to slash the cost of flying--and are offering cuts of 50 per cent in jet travel fares. The company buys their seats in bulk from airlines and charter firms and are defying scheduled airlines regulations by offering tickets to most parts of the world at only three days notice.

    Meanwhile, in Montreal, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) are meeting in a 40-airline closed-door conference--with reductions in air fares high on the agenda. (We refer News Editors to Visnews Production No. 7371/71, International Aviation Conference Will Attempt To Avert Air Fares War, serviced on 30 June.)
    Discount Air Travel Company manager Mr. Jonathan Smith told a reporter about moves which some people have been using to get cheap flights.
