Pegasus taps into hotels via Travelport

Pegasus Solutions has increased its hotel marketing capabilities through a referral relationship with Travelport.

Pegasus representation services customers, including Utell Hotels & Resorts and Utell Connect members, will gain access to Travelport Featured Property, Galileo Headline and Worldspan Accents.

Advertising with Travelport offers Utell members increased exposure to agents booking more than 20m room nights annually through Travelport’s global distribution systems – Galileo and Worldspan.

Ric Leutwyler, chief operating officer of Pegasus Solutions and president of Utell Hotels & Resorts, said: ‘Expanding opportunities for visibility through the GDS, as we are doing with Travelport, allows the hotels we work with to leverage every available opportunity for exposure with the crucial agent booking audience.

‘This relationship will help our hotels win their fair share of the 20m annual room nights being booked through Travelport.’


Niklas Andreen, group vice president for global hospitality and partner marketing for Travelport, added: ‘This agreement is an important step in Travelport’s focused campaign and ongoing investment in becoming the GDS leader for servicing hotel sales.

‘Utell members that can strategically market themselves to our extensive travel agency users will gain an advantage in generating valuable high yield revenue.’
