Travelport, a leading Travel Commerce Platform, recently signed a new, long term, global agreement with Sindbad, one of Russia’s largest online travel agencies. Sindbad has been operating since 1995 and specialises in selling air tickets.
The announcement extends the existing relationship and creates a firm foundation for future commercial successes. Sindbad will connect to Travelport’s Travel Commerce Platform via its Universal API and receive access to an array of travel content, including network and low cost carriers, branded fares and ancillary services.
“We are pleased to have renewed our agreement with Travelport and look forward to maximising our growth opportunities by utilising the company’s impressive content, technology and solutions”, Rashid Velemeev, Co-Owner and General Manager, Sindbad, said.
“Expanding our cooperation with Travelport is an important part of our overall strategy as we look to evolve our online sales presence and enhance our Sindbad.ru website further with the innovative uAPI solution. This powerful tool allows us to bring new efficiencies when handling complex air bookings from different content sources.”
Maria Yakushkina, Travelport’s Country Manager in Russia commented: “We are thrilled with this new agreement and look forward to assisting Sindbad in providing its customers with better service, greater choice of travel content and increased merchandising opportunities.”
