GetThere Expands Web Connect To Offer Connections To More Than 50 Domestic and International Airline Sites; GetThere Offers Corporate Travelers Expanded Number of Options for Finding Low Airfares

SOUTHLAKE, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–April 5, 2005–GetThere(R) today announces the expansion of its Web Connect solution, complementing its already comprehensive access to a variety of flight options. GetThere Web Connect now provides corporate travelers choices from more than 50 domestic and international travel Web sites, including many major airline sites, and U.S. low-cost airlines such as AirTran Airways and JetBlue Airways, and CanJet, a Canadian-based low fare airline.

The expansion of GetThere’s Web Connect allows corporate travelers to compare fares, whether from one or multiple global distribution systems (GDS), a company’s negotiated rates program or airline and other travel Web sites, providing travelers with the confidence that they are seeing a wider range of fares on every booking.

As the world’s leading online corporate travel reservation technology, GetThere offers the most proven, comprehensive solution for helping corporations manage travel online. GetThere Web Connect is an optional capability that can be enabled on each corporate customer’s GetThere site to automatically search travel sites. Companies can choose to configure Web Connect to always search for alternate flight options, or only in key travel markets.

“We have always focused on providing companies the travel options they need whether they are from any GDS, the Web, or other sources that offer distinct value to customers,” said Bev Heinritz, general manager of GetThere. “Enhancing Web Connect further expands the options travelers now can see from both domestic and international airlines, providing comfort that they are viewing a very comprehensive set of fares.”

Additional benefits of the optional Web Connect capability include:

    --  Increased flight options from each site, with up to eight
        available options, and the ability in certain markets to
        search multiple airports;

    --  Searched fare options displayed to travelers on the GetThere
        Low-Fare Suggestions page;

    --  Selected flights are booked on the supplier travel Web site or
        airline site, and in many cases can automatically be included
        in a traveler's GetThere itinerary;

    --  Ability to select Web Connect market by market, which allows
        corporations to choose their most-traveled markets or markets
        where they would like more options, and an option for country
        and regional-based preferences, which is particularly helpful
        for multinational corporations with many offices;

    --  Corporate travel managers can easily configure how Web Connect
        searches and displays flight options to travelers;

    --  New site administration controls for companies to configure
        how Web Connect works, allowing administrators to select
        markets in which a Web Connect search will be employed,
        maintain certain travel policy requirements for display of Web
        Connect alternatives, and provide customized messages to
        corporate travelers.
