Nettec Charter Flights Only Booking Engine @

Nettec, the content-managed corporate portals specialist, have built an online flights only booking engine for Eclipse Holidays, a subsidiary brand of First Choice Holidays plc . Nettec re-branded the tried and tested online booking engine it had previously built in XML, XSLT and Coldfusion for the First Choice Holidays plc and Air 2000 brands. The clever re-use of existing technologies meant that Nettec significantly reduced project timescales and associated costs saving time and money which they passed directly to the client.

Alun Williams, Head of e-Commerce, First Choice commented,“ Nettec have a proven track record in delivering best class e-commerce sites for First Choice ( and We have re-branded the template for to enable Eclipse to sell flights online.”

Eclipse holidays offer great value flights to over 60 destinations from 20 UK departure airports, and customers using the Nettec built online booking engine at can save up to 19 per cent on high street prices. To make the offer even more attractive, if customers find an identical flight cheaper elsewhere (including any travel agent's discounts) and inform Eclipse Holidays within 28 days, Eclipse Holidays will refund the difference (terms and conditions apply).
