The companies report agreement to sell Economy Comfort, Delta’s premium Economy product offering more leg room, through Travelport’s global distribution system.

The agreement will create Economy Comfort booking access later this year for travel agents who use Galileo, Worldspan or Apollo.

“Customers today can purchase Economy Comfort directly with Delta at, through a reservations agent or at the airport via a kiosk or ticket agent,” said Wayne Aaron, vice president, marketing programs and distribution strategy at Delta.

“Partnering with Travelport broadens the availability of this popular product to Travelport-affiliated travel agents. We are always willing to work with partners like Travelport who bring value to the distribution chain and can deliver our product on a cost-effective basis,” Aaron said.
