HRG ‘keeping its options open’ on Direct Connect

American Airlines, a wholly owned subsidiary of AMR Corporation, and Hogg Robinson PLC (“HRG”), announced today that the companies have agreed in principle to explore a long-term arrangement for the benefit of their corporate clients, in which HRG would receive guaranteed direct long-term access to American’s fares, schedules, and customized travel products and services.

HRG said it would plan to access American’s content through the airline’s direct connect link using its own technology, either directly or via a global distribution system (GDS) application programming interface (API).

Additional details were not disclosed.
