Travelport, a leading Travel Commerce Platform providing distribution, technology, payment and other solutions for the $7 trillion global travel and tourism industry, and Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT), one of the world’s leading travel management companies, recently announced an expanded multi-year, global agreement.
The agreement builds upon the two companies’ already long standing relationship and creates a long-term commercial framework to lead and define the working partnership between the two organizations through to the next decade.
As part of the agreement, CWT Travel Counselors will continue to have access to Travelport’s unsurpassed travel content inventory, which includes fares and now ancillaries from the world’s leading network and low cost carriers, as well as its industry leading merchandising and desktop technology.
Travelport will, in turn, benefit from new and incremental business from CWT in certain targeted countries in Europe and the Pacific regions.
“At CWT, we know that to provide best-in-class support to our clients and their travelers, we must balance the latest digital technology with outstanding customer service, today and in the future. Our new agreement with Travelport allows us to continue to do just that,” said Doug Anderson, president and CEO.
