Travelport mobile agent launches in the Pacific

Travelport, a leading provider of critical transaction processing solutions and data to companies operating in the global travel industry, today announced the launch of Travelport Mobile Agent in Australia and New Zealand.

This mobile application is available for download from the Apple and Android app stores, and enables Travelport-connected agents to access, create and modify bookings on the Galileo and Apollo GDS platforms from their iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch or Android device, anywhere, any time.

Travelport Mobile Agent was developed by Travel Technology & Solutions (TTS), and is one of the first products to be made available globally as a result of the Travelport Developer Network, an initiative driven by Travelport’s mission to provide flexible access to content via an open platform. Travelport Mobile Agent highlights the success of this initiative, with the App successfully deployed in the Americas, Brazil, Middle East, Portugal, Spain and the UK, with more than 15,000 downloads since its official launch in July 2012.

Alex Fitzpatrick, Travelport’s General Manager, Pacific, says “We are thrilled to be launching Travelport Mobile Agent in the Pacific region. The application has been very successful since its initial launch, and travel agents in the Pacific have expressed a strong interest for the technology to be deployed here. This mobile solution represents our company’s continued investment in serving agents who are on-the-go, which is a crucial step within such a fast evolving industry.”

As one of the global leaders in travel technology, Travelport continues to encourage the developer community to create innovative ideas to enhance travel through the Travelport Developer Network and Travelport Universal API™. As such, Travelport is proud to be one of the main sponsors of the Tnooz THack event in Sydney, taking place during April 2013.
