Hong Kong flag carrier Cathay Pacific has extended its
long-standing partnership with Travelport with a renewed and expanded
multi-source content distribution agreement.
Under the terms of the new agreement, Travelport will
continue to support Cathay Pacific by providing connected travel agencies with
real-time access to search, sell and book its inventory. This will
progressively be expanded to include a larger range of fares as well as
ancillaries than had previously been available, according to Travelport.
In addition, Cathay Pacific will support Travelport in
advancing its New Distribution Capability (NDC) initiatives.
Travelport has also recently signed NDC agreements with British
Airways owner International Airlines Group and Air France-KLM.
Martin Xu, general manager of sales and distribution at Cathay
Pacific, commented: “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.”
Sue Carter, head of Asia Pacific and air partners at
Travelport, added: “We are delighted to be able to offer even more of Cathay
Pacific’s content, especially as we progress our work on NDC.”
