Travelport, a leading distribution services and e-commerce provider for the global travel industry, today announces the renewal of a long-term agreement with Atrapalo.com, a premier Barcelona-based online leisure travel agency which includes plans for expansion in Latin America. This builds on a 10-year relationship between the two companies in Europe.
As Atrapalo expands to several countries in Central and South America, supported by Travelport’s innovative technology solutions, the two companies expect a substantial growth of their regional footprint. Atrapalo will continue using Galileo and Galileo Web Services as their primary platform and plan to begin introducing additional tools, such as Travelport Rapid Reprice™, an automated ticket repricing product, in the near future.
The foundation of this relationship was laid over the past two years while Travelport and Atrapalo worked hand in hand in Brazil, Colombia, Chile and Peru. During this time, both companies have achieved positive results in these countries and have been effective in consolidating their presence.
“We’re happy to work with Travelport during this exciting period of growth in the Latin America,” said Ignacio Giral, Travel General Manager, Atrapalo.com. “We view Travelport as not only our GDS provider, but also as a long-term strategic technology provider for the future.”
“This is a great example of a win-win business relationship,” said Erika Moore, Travelport´s Regional Director for Latin America, Brazil and the Caribbean. “The collaboration between Travelport and Atrapalo.com has already produced positive results in Europe and we look forward to seeing that growth trend continue in Latin America.”
