Travelport reports it has signed agreements with six travel agencies in the Asia-Pacific region to participate in the regional testing and development of its Travelport Universal Desktop.  The new contracts follow successful agency trials and positive feedback from global launch partner, Flight Centre Ltd and UK beta test customer Global Travel Management.
