Travelport, a leading travel commerce platform, recently announced the signing of a new, extended agreement with IATI Travel, an online travel platform based in Turkey.
Travelport will support IAT’s operations while extending the geographical reach of the partnership to cover Germany, Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan.
“Our partnership with IATI has flourished since 2012 and we are looking to further power its success and expansion across new territories,” Rabih Saab, President and Managing Director, Europe, Africa, Middle East and South Asia, Travelport, said.
The company’s high performance is powered by Travelport Universal API (uAPI) technology. This aggregates the most comprehensive content from multiple sources, including national and low-cost carriers, branded fares and ancillary services, as well as unique hotel properties, rail and car rental. This provides IATI with access to both unrivaled content and functionality through a single connection.
“We are impressed by Travelport’s customer-driven solution which provides highly efficient tools for our agents,” IATA’s chairman, Levent Aydın, said, adding that the company has confidence in Travelport’s extensive reach and expertise, so it can further focus on expanding its business across the globe.
IATI’s platform is used by more than 30,000 agents operating across 62 countries.
