Travelport has signed a new marketing partnership with VisitFinland to promote its stopover programme targeting Asian travellers visiting Europe.

Under the first stage of the agreement, VisitFinland will leverage Travelport’s digital media solutions to promote Finland a key stopover destination through an integrated digital media campaign.

Kaisa Kosonen, program manager, Stopover Finland by VisitFinland, commented: “We are delighted to partner with Travelport to capitalise on their innovative technology and global reach.

High-impact marketing tools including Travelport Headlines, Sign-On Messages, and Electronic Direct Mail, help travel providers and organisations to increase revenue by maximising communications across Travelport’s global network, delivering targeted sales and promotional messages that influence purchase decisions, before, during and after the point of sale.
