Travelport reports two new agreements with Avianca and TACA Airlines. This includes a multi-year content agreement providing all Travelport connected travel agents (Galileo, Apollo and Worldspan) with complete, global access to the group’s best publicly available fare inventory.
It also includes a technology services agreement providing Travelport Rapid Reprice across multiple distribution channels, fully automating the manual process of repricing and reissuing airline tickets when passenger itineraries change. Travelport connected agencies will also now be able to process ticket reissues validated on TACA Airlines and Avianca.
Travelport Rapid Reprice improves ticket agent and website productivity, as well as customer satisfaction, while also generating incremental revenues, which would otherwise be lost due to the complex and time consuming manual repricing process, Travelport says.
“Following a partial deployment of Travelport Rapid Reprice with successful results, we have now agreed to expand usage across all of TACA Airlines and Avianca carriers. It has superior functionality and proven performance,” said Gustavo Cadavid, vice president, revenue management for AviancaTaca.
As part of this agreement, Travelport will also be supplying Avianca and TACA Airlines with MIDT, a data source for business intelligence needs.
