Travelport has announced a new long-term, global distribution agreement with Delta Air Lines effective immediately. Under the terms of the agreement, Travelport-connected agencies will continue to have access to the full range of Delta fares and availability and will have greater access to Delta's merchandising products and services.
Travelport said it will be working with Delta to improve efficiencies including increased use of the new Travelport Merchandising Platform which transforms the way airlines deliver and display their products to travel agents.
This is the latest development that builds on Travelport's March 2013 introduction of the ability to book Economy Comfort, Delta's premium Economy product offering more leg room. Delta will continue to participate in Travelport's Content Continuity Program and Super Access Product, and there is no change in your related content fees, Travelport said.
Travelport's expanded partnership with Delta is one more example of how we can create benefits for all members of the travel ecosystem through our unique approach to airline merchandising, optional ancillary sales and product differentiation, Travelport says.
