Jazeera Airways and Travelport strengthen partnership

Travelport and Jazeera Airways, Kuwait’s largest airline serving the Middle East, has announced the renewal of their global full content agreement.

Building on the existing relationship between the Kuwait-based airline and the Global Distribution Systems provider, the new agreement will ensure that content from Jazeera Airways will continue to be made available exclusively to Travelport GDS users in Kuwait, with preferred access to the carrier’s best inventory and fares.

Jazeera Airways, an award-winning airline that serves 19 destinations across the Middle East and North Africa, is one of the largest airlines on its routes network.

In addition to the new content deal, Jazeera Airways will also subscribe to Travelport Sponsored Flights Advertising, an advertising tool which enables carriers to place flights in a separate area above the neutral display on the travel agent’s availability results screen for optimum visibility.

This industry first solution can promote new destinations or expanded service on existing routes, market reduced or promotional fares and offer alternative airport choices.

“This new agreement will enable Jazeera Airways to continue building on its strong partnership with the travel industry across the region and to offer travellers better access to enhanced and competitive fares through their local agent.

“Having a solid distribution strategy is a key element in continuing our strategic growth across the Middle East, and Travelport is the partner to help us achieve that.” said Rafiq Boghdady, vice president, sales, Jazeera Airways.
