STM Becomes First OBT Vendor to Integrate Lumo Delay Predictions with Air Search Results

PRESS RELEASE April 2, 2020


Waterloo, Iowa – Short’s Travel Management (STM) released an update this week to their innovative online booking tool, Short’s Travel Online (STO), becoming the first Online Booking Tool to include the display of Lumo’s flight delay and missed connection risk indexes for all flights returned in air search.


Lumo’s advanced machine learning algorithms consider numerous factors—weather, air traffic control, network propagation, current delays, history, etc. to deliver detailed probabilities for flight delays months, weeks, days and hours ahead of time, helping STM’s client travelers to proactively select a flight with greater peace of mind and likelihood to arrive in time for important events.


Kevin Broughton, CIO of Short’s Travel Management, remarked on this update, “When we started our partnership with Lumo last year reselling their Lumo Navigator and Spotlight products, we knew how much travelers would value the unique predictions Lumo can provide during a traveler’s journey. We also saw the potential to elevate the booking experience for our clients by providing that same level of intelligence during the booking process to help travelers make better decisions for better travel experiences. Lumo has been an amazing partner from the start with their consultations and accommodations necessary to launch this industry first.”
