Travelport, Continental Sign Deal

Travelport, operating both the Galileo and Worldspan global distribution systems (GDS), announced that Continental Airlines has signed a two-and-one-half-year extension of their current full content agreement. As a result, Continental published fares and related seat inventory, including web fares available on its own site, reservation offices and through third parties, will continue to be available to subscribers of the Galileo and Worldspan GDS systems.

“Our Travelport-connected travel agents, corporate travelers and consumer customers will continue to have efficient access to Continental’s published fares and related seat inventory at the same or better levels than offered by any other GDS,” said Travis Christ, president of the americas for Travelport GDS.

said Scott Stachowiak, Director of Distribution, Continental Airlines. “This agreement also provides us with a flexible and cost-effective distribution solution that meets the needs of today's dynamic marketplace.”

Continental’s current distribution agreement with Galileo and Worldspan was set to expire in 2011. The extension keeps the full content distribution agreement in place through the end of 2013.
