Travelport inks deal with Qantas Airways

Travelport, the business services provider to the global travel industry, has today announced a new long term agreement with Qantas Airways.

Effective immediately, the new agreement ensures Galileo, Worldspan and Apollo-connected travel agents worldwide have access to Qantas’ full published inventory including ancillary content such as paid seating, consistent with the airline’s website.

“We are delighted to sign this long-term agreement with Qantas and secure this important content for our travel agency customers worldwide,” said Andrew Middleton, Travelport’s Vice President, Supplier Services, APAC.

Last year, Travelport subscribers received full GDS access to the Qantas advance seat selection product, following the introduction of a new booking capability enabling agents to book and pay for preferred seats on Qantas flights via their desktop.

“We are pleased to reach this agreement and look forward to strengthening our long term relationship,” said Stephen Limbrick, Qantas’ Executive General Manager, Domestic Sales, Distribution and Marketing.
