Travelport expands commercial relationship with Carlson Wagonlit

Travelport and Carlson Wagonlit Travel, one of the world’s leading travel management companies, have announced an expanded multi-year, global agreement.

The agreement builds upon the two companies’ already long standing relationship and creates a long-term commercial framework to lead and define the working partnership between the two organisations through to the next decade.

As part of the agreement, CWT Travel Counsellors will continue to have access to Travelport’s unsurpassed travel content inventory, which includes fares and now ancillaries from the world’s leading network and low cost carriers, as well as its industry leading merchandising and desktop technology.

Travelport will, in turn, benefit from new and incremental business from CWT in certain targeted countries in Europe and the Pacific regions.

Gordon Wilson, president, Travelport, commented: “This new agreement with CWT represents a strong, long term commitment to Travelport and expands the successful global partnership we have enjoyed now for many years – it clearly demonstrates how positively CWT view both our team and our Travel Commerce Platform offering.” 

Travelport is a leading travel commerce platform providing distribution, technology, payment and other solutions for the $7 trillion global travel and tourism industry.

Doug Anderson, president, CWT commented: “At CWT, we know that to provide best-in-class support to our clients and their travellers, we must balance the latest digital technology with outstanding customer service, today and in the future.

“Our new agreement with Travelport allows us to continue to do just that.”
