Travelport, the operator of the Apollo, Galileo and Worldspan global distribution systems (GDS), announced that Canadian travel agents have voted Travelport their favorite global distribution system (GDS). The Agents’ Choice Awards, the largest survey of its kind in Canada, polled retail travel agents across Canada and asked them to identify their favorites in a variety of travel categories, including favorite GDS. Travelport Canada has been named favorite GDS eight times in the last ten years of the survey, Travelport said.
Maurita Baker, country manager, Canada for Travelport, attributed the company’s continued success to its intense focus on travel agency and supplier partners. “It is a momentous honor to again be chosen as Canada’s favorite GDS. Travelport has made many Canadian-specific investments in the last 12 months to constantly meet and exceed the expectations of the travel industry. We have expanded our presence with additional personnel across the country and continue to be the only GDS with full Air Canada content including all fare families, flight passes and a la carte offerings.”
The Agents’ Choice Awards 2011, conducted by Baxter Travel Media, took place between February and April. The results are completely and entirely reflective of the votes received from travel agent respondents.
