Travelport signs content partnership with Nile Air of Egypt

Travelport and Nile Air announce the signing of a multi-year, global full content agreement.

Nile Air, one of Egypt’s leading private airlines, launched operations in 2010 and provides services from across Egypt to the Middle East, Gulf and Africa with a fleet of modern Airbus A320 aircraft configured with eight business class seats and 156 in economy.

This new agreement will enable the 67,000 Travelport-connected agencies worldwide to access fares and inventory, including web fares, and ancillaries for Nile Air.

Additionally, Nile Air has committed to Travelport Rich Content and Branding, a key component of the Travelport Travel Commerce Platform, which allows airlines to market and retail their products more effectively by controlling how their product is visually presented and described to travel agents.

The solution is designed to enable travel content suppliers to drive sales of core products and ancillaries.
