Travelport GDS has signed a multi-year full content deal with Porter Airlines. Included are all of Porter’s published fares and inventory, which will be available to all users of the Galileo and Worldspan systems. Porter Airlines will also be available through Travelport Agencia. Access to Porter Airlines will be implemented in a phased approach with Apollo customers gaining access beginning June 30 followed by Worldspan and Galileo in August.
“We are delighted to have signed this global full content agreement and to be able to give our travel agency customers access to Porter Airlines’ full inventory, including their lowest web fares,” said Dan Westbrook, Travelport’s vice president, airline services for the Americas. “Our customers have expressed a strong desire to leverage the efficiency of the GDS when booking Porter Airlines, which is a key carrier for our Eastern North America-based agencies. We are delighted to ensure our customers remain competitive and continue to have access to the best possible content.”

“This agreement allows Porter Airlines to achieve our key business objectives to grow revenue and effectively manage distribution costs," said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines.
