Travel commerce platform Travelport and Travelgenio, a European online travel agency, recently announced the renewal of their long-term partnership.
“To maintain its leadership in the competitive landscape of online travel, Travelgenio needs continued access to extensive global travel choices and the best booking technology to deliver a fast, differentiated and personalized booking,” said Fred Lindgren, country manager of Travelport Spain.
By connecting to Travelport’s highly-differentiated Travel Commerce Platform, the online travel agency is able to benefit from Travelport’s leading-edge search, automation, shopping and booking technologies, while accessing business logic and profiling functionality on a single platform.
“This agreement is testament to Travelport’s combination of innovative technology and extensive travel content,” Lindgren added.
With nearly 250 airlines signed up to use Travelport’s unique merchandising technology, Travelgenio is able to further differentiate itself by displaying and selling branded fare families and ancillary products from these airlines in the same way they do on their own websites.
Travelgenio will also benefit from the Travelport’s leading-edge search, automation, shopping and booking technologies, while accessing business logic and profiling functionality on a single platform.
Moreover, having recently become the first global distribution system (GDS) to be certified by IATA as a “Level 3” Aggregator under its New Distribution Capability (NDC) initiative, Travelport will also benefit Travelgenio by creating NDC connections with airlines as they become available.
