Inventory transports can be used as primary connections between Departure and Arrival airports in a template, like live flight offers. At the moment, transports can be of type Flight, Bus or Train.
Additionally, there is no match pre-condition regarding the airports of inventory flights and the existence of airport stops at the template level, meaning, an inventory flight can be used in a template that does not include an airport.
