Biman Bangladesh Airlines has penned a new agreement with Travelport that will offer even more of its fares and content to travel agents via the GDS.

Under the expanded partnership, the Bangladeshi national carrier will provide its full content to Travelport’s global network of 67,000 travel agencies. This includes international, domestic and group bookings, as well such ancillaries products as paid seating and extra baggage.

Travelport said the flexibility of domestic and group bookings is “of particular relevance for travel agents in Bangladesh, as they cater to a large number of group travellers such as contract workers and Muslim Haj pilgrims flying out of Bangladesh”.

“I am thrilled that Biman Bangladesh Airlines recognises the strategic value of Travelport’s Travel Commerce Platform. Enabling airlines to differentiate and tailor their products to their specific customers has always been our key strength,” said Damian Hickey, Travelport’s vice president for Asia Pacific and global sales strategy – air commerce.

Biman Bangladesh Airlines currently operates flights to 21 destinations, including 18 international hubs.
