Travelport has signed a new multi-year global full content agreement with Air China.
The deal commences this month and ensures that Galileo-, Apollo- and Worldspan-connected travel agencies worldwide will continue to have full access to the Air China’s fares and inventory.
As part of the agreement, Air China has also adopted the highest level of Travelport’s GDS functionality, and will offer online check-in on Travelport’s ViewTrip website.
“We are impressed by Travelport’s commitment to innovation in the global distribution chain and very pleased to sign an agreement that will expand access and sales of Air China’s nearly 300 flight routes around the world,” said Li Dong, Air China’s Deputy General Manager of Network & Revenue Management.
“As the national carrier for The People’s Republic of China, Air China represents an important airline partner to Travelport both in the Asia Pacific region and globally. We are pleased they have also signed up for online check-in via our ViewTrip tool – we are keen to continually enhance the booking process throughout the travel distribution chain,” commented Andrew Middleton, Travelport’s Vice President of Supplier Services for Asia Pacific.
