Travelport and Alitalia jointly announced the renewal of their global, full-content agreement for Galileo and Worldspan-connected travel agencies. The new multi-year deal ensures that all travel agents connected to Travelport’s GDS platforms are guaranteed access to the full fares and inventory of Alitalia, including its online fares.

“As one of Europe’s leading airlines, Alitalia is an important and longstanding partner for Travelport and we are delighted to have secured their full content for all our travel agency users worldwide,” said Robin Ranken, Travelport’s head of supplier for Europe.

Marco Sansavini, Alitalia’s executive vice president of sales, distribution and customer care said: “The extensive distribution network that Travelport offers through its Galileo and Worldspan platforms, and the fact that they are the GDS of choice amongst travel agents in Italy, gives us very valuable access to the travel industry and strengthens our cooperation with the travel agency network which is an essential part of our distribution strategy.”
