Travelport secures six long-term partnerships with APAC agencies

Global travel technology player Travelport has announced six long-term agreements with travel agencies in the Asia-Pacific region.

Three of the agreements are new wins: two in Greater China with EverExpress Travel Service and Kent Holidays Company Limited; and one in South Korea with Lotte Tour.

The company has also renewed its partnerships with Richmond International Travel & Tours and Hong Kong Borabora Trading in Greater China, as well as IACE Travel in Japan.

As part of the multi-year agreements, Travelport will provide the agencies with real-time access to a broad range of content from around 400 airlines, more than 300 global hotel brands, and over 37,000 car rental locations worldwide.

In addition, the companies will have access to Travelport’s search, automation, shopping and booking technologies.

Lotte Tour, a leading travel conglomerate in South Korea, will also be using Travelport’s branded fares data file; while EverExpress Travel Service, a major player in Taichung, Taiwan, will be using Travelport’s branded fares and ancillary services.

Richmond International Travel & Tours, one of the largest travel agencies in Taiwan, will also continue to participate in initiatives driven by Travelport involving the New Distribution Capability standard.

Mark Meehan, group vice president and managing director for Travelport’s APAC operations, said:

“We are proud to be both welcoming new alliances to the Travelport network, as well as extending long-standing partnerships.

“These agreements are [a] testament to the mutual confidence our partners share with us in the crucial role that innovative distribution technology will play in the recovery of travel.”
