Travelport, a global technology company that powers travel bookings for hundreds of airlines and thousands of hotels worldwide, and Cathay Pacific, Hong Kong’s home airline, have extended their long-standing partnership with a renewed and expanded multi-source content distribution agreement.
The deal includes a commitment to work with Travelport in advancing its New Distribution Capability (NDC) initiatives.
Travelport will continue to support Cathay Pacific by providing Travelport-connected agencies around the world with real-time access to search, sell, and book its content and inventory.
In addition, the agreement will see the content available to agents progressively expanded, to include a larger range of fares as well as ancillaries than had previously been unavailable.
“The longevity of our relationship is ample testament to the fruitful partnership we’ve enjoyed with Travelport over the past decades. With the expanded flight offerings, fares and ancillaries available in this new agreement, we look forward to helping agencies connected to Travelport generate even more value for their customers,” Cathay Pacific General Manager Sales and Distribution Martin Xu said.
According to Sue Carter, head of Asia Pacific, Air Partners at Travelport, simplifying access to multi-source content, while simultaneously making it easier to sell, is exactly what the new Travelport+ platform is designed to do.
“We are confident this new agreement will generate more value than ever before for Cathay Pacific and our connected agencies alike,” she added.
