Reminding that they started to offer air travels with 2% lower prices by connecting the non-contracted airlines with the Smart Flight algorithm they developed 70 years ago, Turna.com General Manager Dr. Kadir Kırmızı said, “The Smart Flight application, which we developed inspired by the Intelligent Flight algorithm, finds the route offering the best price and at the same time connects cities that do not have direct flights. For example, although there is no direct bus service between Edirne and Diyarbakır, the algorithm offers the user the best transfer options and first directs them to İzmir Bus Terminal with Nilüfer Turizm. The algorithm, which takes the waiting times into account, enables the passenger to reach Diyarbakır by transferring the journey of Özlem Batman Turizm. The algorithm thus, uninterrupted bus offers the opportunity to travel with a minimum number of stops and waiting time in Turkey. " said.
Developed algorithm will reduce travel time and prices
Providing details on how the Smart Expedition algorithm works, Turna.com's founder and General Manager Dr. Kadir Kırmızı said, “The developed algorithm creates the best total travel time and the cheapest price by optimizing the transfer location and transfer time. It creates a new travel plan by connecting the bus companies on the lines with the best connection. Travel and bus companies at any time can be chosen from among the many options offered by the algorithm. Currently, the Smart Campaign application can only be accessed from Turna.com's Mobile Web applications. Those who want to take advantage of the application called Smart Campaign, or Smarttrip in English, need to access the website from the internet browser on their smart mobile phones. We plan to implement the desktop website and mobile application versions of this service, which is currently only available on the mobile website, in the coming period. " said.
Will contribute to the ecosystem bus in Turkey
Saying that with the opportunity to make easy and fast travel plans provided by the Smart Expedition application, more passengers would prefer bus trips and parallel to this, they expect an increase in the earnings of the bus companies. Kadir Kırmızı said, “Thanks to this application, relatively small bus companies are automatically included in the transportation network offered by large companies. I think that this connection established between bus services will make a serious contribution to the ecosystem. In the field of travel, we have previously achieved many firsts with features such as purchasing flight tickets with card points, unconditional ticket cancellation, online ticket change and Smart Flight. This new application, which will change the course of bus travels, will make life easier for those who travel by bus. " used the expressions.
