Orbitz Worldwide announced it has signed a long-term renewal agreement with ITA Software, Inc. The agreement includes terms for Orbitz Worldwide’s use of ITA’s QPX software for the Orbitz.com and CheapTickets.com websites through Dec. 31, 2015.
An ITA customer since the launch of Orbitz.com in 2001, Orbitz Worldwide said it wanted to continue using ITA’s QPX Software for its flexible search options and customization choices.
"ITA's QPX system continues to help Orbitz offer its customers millions of different flight choices from the hundreds of airlines we offer on a daily basis," said Mike Nelson, president of Orbitz Worldwide's partner services group. "We're pleased we can continue this partnership with ITA Software to help make Orbitz Worldwide a leading place online where our customers can come to our Orbitz.com and CheapTickets.com sites and quickly comparison search and book the best flight options."
"Working together since before they even launched in 2001, Orbitz.com has consistently been an innovator in air travel distribution and has adopted new QPX product features to bolster its consumer value proposition as a place to search for and book air travel," said Gianni Marostica, chief commercial officer at ITA. "Our partnership with Orbitz Worldwide continues to be rewarding as we work together to deliver next generation search and book capabilities to consumers."
