UK-based easyJet has signed a new agreement with Travelport that will further open up easyJet booking services to be sold by all Galileo-connected agency customers worldwide and any other agency using the Travelport Universal API.
In addition, the new agreement will also deliver enhanced functionality to improve the booking process for agents, including the sale of easyJet ancillary services.
easyJet is considered the World’s Leading Low-cost Airline by the World Travel Awards.
The new agreement builds on an earlier contract between easyJet and Travelport in 2007 which represented easyJet’s first move into enabling third party distribution of its products.
Commenting on the new agreement, Andrew Hodges, easyJet’s director of sales, distribution and business, said: “We are delighted to be extending and expanding our partnership with Travelport and making our content available to all travel agents.
“Travelport’s extensive global footprint provides us with an efficient distribution channel for distributing our popular low-fares, including the Flexi fare, especially to the managed corporate travel market.”
