Travelport has signed a new distribution agreement with East Air, an international carrier of Tajikistan. This is the first time East Air has made its content available to travel agents outside of the local region and it can be accessed by Travelport-connected agents worldwide.
East Air, the first airline in Tajikistan to introduce Boeing and Airbus aircraft, currently operates flights to destinations within Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia.
“We have ambitious plans to open new routes and increase capacity in the next few years,” said Anatoly Galunov, Head of East Air. “Making our content available to travel agents, through Travelport, is a key part of those plans and will ensure we maximise the investment in our expansion.”
“It is always great to be the first to break new ground, and we are delighted to be part of East Air’s plans for growth,” added Robin Ranken, Head of Airline Relationships for Europe. “2013 has been a great year for our airline relationships as we bring more and more content to our agents, and deliver even greater value to our partners.”
