Travelport, a leading Travel Commerce Platform, recently announced a new long-term agreement with First Class, one of the largest travel management companies in Poland.
First Class specializes in delivering comprehensive and professional business travel management, as well as organizing corporate events and conferences. Its client portfolio consists of over 800 corporate customers including governmental and financial institutions, universities and leading companies of both local and international repute.
As part of the new deal, Travelport will provide First Class with access to its unrivalled travel content inventory from the world’s leading airlines and low cost carriers as well as over 600,000 hotel properties, including 500,000 independents.
“This deal is a great endorsement of Travelport’s unique offering which is proving to be very desirable amongst travel management companies”, said Aleksandra Tomaszewska, Travelport’s Country Manager in Poland. “The agreement will also significantly increase Travelport’s presence in the corporate travel space in Poland.”
The company will also benefit from the innovative features of Travelport Smartpoint, the industry-leading agency point of sale solution which makes booking travel more efficient and gives them the ability to effectively sell a wider range of air, hotel and car content to their customers.
Travelport also appealed to First Class due to other products such as TripGate, a corporate booking tool that gives access to a simple, fast and reliable solution designed to improve the process of booking and coordinating business trips for travel management companies.
“Opening cooperation with Travelport is the next major milestone on First Class’s new growth strategy”, said Rafał Ostrowski, First Class’s President of the Board.
“Our long-term aim is to achieve pole position within the local TMC sector and we are confident that Travelport’s products and services will help us to build the comparative advantages we need and add real value for our customers.”
First Class was established in 1991. In September 2014 First Class became the exclusive Polish partner of GlobalStar Travel Management, a worldwide travel management company.
