Aeroflot links with Travelport for content deal

Travelport and Russian airline Aeroflot have announced a new agreement that secures full content from the carrier for Galileo and Worldspan-connected travel agents worldwide.

Effective immediately, the five year deal provides all Travelport GDS users with access to the fares and inventory of Aeroflot, including the carrier’s best published fares and functionality parity with all other distribution channels.

“Aeroflot is a notable airline player in Europe and offers an extensive route network across Russia, Siberia and the Far East,” said Robin Ranken, head of airline supplier services for Travelport in Europe.

“Corporate travellers, in particular, are increasingly opting for Aeroflot’s flights so we are truly pleased to have secured this full content for our travel agency customers.”

From its hub in Moscow, Aeroflot, the national carrier and largest airline in Russia, operates flights to 103 destinations in 50 countries and is a full member of SkyTeam, the second largest airline alliance in the world.
