Technology firm Travelport and Cathay Pacific have renewed and expanded their long-standing distribution agreement.
The deal includes a commitment by the Hong Kong-based carrier to work with Travelport in advancing its New Distribution Capability (NDC) initiatives.
Travelport will continue to support Cathay Pacific by providing Travelport-connected agencies around the world with real-time access to search, sell, and book its content and inventory.
The content available to agents will be expanded to include a larger range of fares as well as ancillaries than had previously been unavailable.
Martin Xu, sales and distribution general manager at Cathay Pacific, said: “The longevity of our relationship is ample testament to the fruitful partnership we’ve enjoyed with Travelport over the past decades.
“With the expanded flight offerings, fares and ancillaries available in this new agreement, we look forward to helping agencies connected to Travelport generate even more value for their customers.”
Sue Carter, Travelport’s head of air partners for Asia Pacific, added: “We are delighted to be able to offer even more of Cathay Pacific’s content, especially as we progress with our work on NDC.
“Simplifying access to multi-source content, while simultaneously making it easier to sell is exactly what our new Travelport+ platform is designed to do, and we’re confident this new agreement will generate more value than ever before for Cathay Pacific and our connected agencies alike.”
