Cathay Pacific Airways and Travelport announced a marketing agreement that will provide all Galileo, Apollo and Worldspan-connected travel agents with efficient access to the airline’s fares and content. The five-year deal provides Travelport’s network of travel agency customers worldwide access to Cathay Pacific’s fares and inventory of flights, with full booking functionality. The agreement takes effect immediately.
“The new deal also seals parity for travel agency users in Asia and worldwide,” said Simon Nowroz, managing director, Asia-Pacific Travelport GDS.
The agreement with Cathay Pacific is the latest example of Travelport’s strategy of securing content agreements and reaffirms the value of its global distribution platforms for airlines. Other recent airline renewals include British Airways, Emirates and Etihad.
