Travelport, United Extend Agreement

Travelport and United Airlines have signed a two-year extension of their current full content agreement. All United published fares and seat inventory, including web fares available on its own site, reservation offices and through third parties, will be available to subscribers of Travelport's Apollo, Galileo and Worldspan GDS systems. This includes all Travelport-connected offline travel agencies and online agencies booking through Travelport.

As part of the agreement, United is offering Travelport-connected travel agents the option of selling their passengers upgrades into United Airlines' popular Economy Plus seating. Economy Plus seat upgrades will become available later this year through the Travelport travel agency point of sale tools, Apollo Focalpoint, Galileo Desktop and Worldspan GoRes.

Travelport will also integrate these merchandising capabilities over time into the Travelport Universal Desktop, making it easier for Travelport-connected travel agents around the world to transact this premium coach seat capability within their standard workflow.

United's Economy Plus seating provides more room to work or rest on a flight with up to five more inches of legroom and are located at the front of the economy cabin.
