Travelport has acquired a 49 per cent stake in travel technology firm Locomote.
Locomote said it has developed a platform to help travellers with the authorisation and procurement processes, including traveller profile management, pre-trip approvals and duty of care capabilities.
It uses all of Travelport’s Universal Profile, Universal Record, travel policy engine and Travelport’s Universal Application Programming Interface, from which it obtains real time access to its content. This includes low cost and network carriers, airline ancillary products, car rental and all of the industry leading, broad range of hotel properties and rates that Travelport now distributes.
Gordon Wilson, president and CEO of Travelport said: “Through this strategic investment in Locomote, we have significantly strengthened our offering to both corporates and TMCs from an end to end customer experience perspective.
“Locomote has been, and will continue to be, totally focused on what corporations and their corporate travellers want, in order to make the management of their travel an empowered, improved and mobile user experience, leveraging all of the latest technology and content that Travelport brings.”
