Worldwide travel retail platform, Travelport, on Thursday announced a multi-year extension of its full content agreement with American Airlines, effective immediately.

The agreement also includes the distribution of American Airlines’ NDC content and supports the airline’s new codeshare and extended services relationship for domestic bookings with Alaska Airlines and JetBlue Airways.

“Travelport’s ability to deliver an end-to-end NDC solution and the features in its platform are key drivers for extending our partnership. Travelport-connected agents will continue to enjoy easy access to our full range of products, including NDC content, so that they can better serve travelers as we get the world moving again after a difficult year for our industry,” said Neil Geurin, Managing Director of Digital and Distribution at American Airlines.

As part of the agreement, Travelport will roll out several enhanced functionalities to simplify how its tens of thousands of connected agencies shop and manage NDC bookings with American Airlines. This rollout includes the airline’s new Main Plus offer, which provides either a Main Cabin Extra seat or Preferred seat along with an additional free checked bag and boarding privileges. The partners will continuously deliver the end-to-end NDC retailing capabilities agencies need to upsell, personalize and change bookings over the course of 2021.

“We’ve been at the forefront of NDC delivery globally and this agreement with American Airlines further strengthens that leadership position. We’re dedicated to increasing value for our airline partners whilst ensuring travelers have access to the broadest range of content possible,” Jason Clarke, Chief Commercial Officer – Travel Partners at Travelport, said.
