Travelport, the business services provider to the global travel industry, has today announced a new, multi-year global content agreement with Swiss International Air Lines Ltd. (“SWISS”). Through this agreement, Travelport has ensured that its Galileo and Worldspan travel agency customers worldwide have access to the full published content of SWISS.
As part of the agreement, all GDS surcharges will continue to be waived for Travelport-connected travel agencies who choose to participate in the SWISS Preferred Fares programmes that operate in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Liechtenstein. Outside of these countries Galileo and Worldspan-connected agencies will also continue to have access to all of SWISS’s published fares and inventory.
Oliver Barthelmeh, Head of Revenue Management, Pricing & Distribution at SWISS said: “We very much value our continuing partnership with Travelport who offer a major distribution channel for the sale of SWISS fares through their Galileo, Apollo and Worldspan GDS. Travelport offers a highly efficient means of booking all SWISS flights and fares for travel agencies worldwide.”
