The National Association of Nigerian Travel Agency, NANTA, Friday announced that it will be training IATA and Non-IATA registered travel agencies in Lagos, Port Harcourt, and Abuja at no cost.

“The IEP will provide travel agents with more flexibility, it will also provide a failsafe, allowing travel agents to continue transacting in the BSP if they ever reach their Remittance Holding Capacity (RHC), said Mr. Bankole Bernard, NANTA President.

Tagged as IATA EasyPay Workshop for IATA and Non-IATA Agents, the purpose of the workshop is to enlighten Travel Agents on the IATA EasyPay (IEP) plan.

“IATA EasyPay (IEP) is a new payment method that is globally available to all IATA accredited travel agents for the issuance of tickets through IATA’s Billing Settlement Plan (BSP). IATA EasyPay is a secure, pay-as-you-go solution. It is an electronic wallet and is available to agents to use alongside the other payment methods in the BSP,” Mr. Bernard says.

The association says it will also use this opportunity to address certain issues and challenges it has been facing over the years. NANTA says it will also make use of this platform to set its house in proper order by encouraging unregistered NANTA agencies to come under the umbrella and thereby drastically reduce fraudulent practices in the travel market.

Mr. Bankole also adds that the benefits of the workshop for the travel agencies is that the IEP provides a greater level of flexibility for agents.

In another development the association has recently renewed her membership with the Universal Federation of Travel Agents Association (UFTAA) in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
