Travelport and Travelgenio have announced a renewed long-term partnership.
The agreement sees Travelport continue as one of the Spanish online travel agency’s preferred and primary travel commerce platforms.
With nearly 250 airlines signed up to use Travelport’s merchandising technology, Travelgenio is able to further differentiate itself by displaying and selling branded fare families and ancillary products – such as paid seat assignments, baggage fees, priority boarding etc – from these airlines in the same way they do on their own websites.
Having recently become the first global distribution system 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.
By connecting to Travelport’s Travel Commerce Platform, the online travel agency is able to benefit from Travelport’s search, automation, shopping and booking technologies, while accessing business logic and profiling functionality on a single platform.
