Top executive joins Danish airfare intelligence firm

Danish provider of intelligence worldwide appoints Sabre and Lufthansa veteran.

Infare, a Copenhagen-based provider of airfare intelligence to the aviation and travel industries, is expanding its management team with the appointment of travel executive Harald Eisenaecher as its chief commercial officer.

Eisenaecher brings more than 20 years of experience in travel and data businesses, most recently as senior vice president for Europe, the Middle East and Africa at Sabre and previously at Lufthansa Group, eBay and Deutsche Telekom.

At Infare, he will be responsible for the customer-facing activities, ensuring that the company anticipates the evolving needs of its customers worldwide and grows its revenue base.

Founded in Copenhagen in 2000, Infare describes itself as being “relied upon by more than 260 airlines, airports and travel agents for high-quality, consistent airfare data and powerful analysis tools that allow day-to-day and long-term strategic revenue management, pricing and network decisions to be taken with confidence”.

Every day, it delivers some 3.5 billion airfare observations to its customers worldwide – airports, airlines, OTAs and travel agents – through individually tailored data files.

Competitor pricing analysis
Using its analysis tools such as Pharos, Altus and Airports, it enables revenue and pricing managers, analysts and route and network planners to make detailed analysis of competitor pricing to help maximise flight and route profitability.

Nils Gelbjerg-Hansen, chief executive of Infare, says he is “delighted that, following last year’s expansion when we began serving the former aviation customers of QL2 Software, Infare has the scale and market opportunity to attract talent such as Harald.”

Eisenaecher commented that “pricing intelligence is becoming increasingly important in the highly competitive airline and travel industries. Infare is already relied upon by many players in the travel industry for vital airfare data.”
