Travel commerce marketplace Travelport has entered into a new distribution contract with BQB Líneas Aéreas (also known as BQB Air), a Uruguay based regional airline. As a result of this partnership BQB’s full published inventory will be made available to Travelport-connected travel agents worldwide.
In addition BQB has also signed up to participate in Travelport’s Rich Content and Branding merchandising technology. Only launched this year, the platform enables airlines to have control of how their flights and ancillaries are visually presented and described on travel agency screens, which will in turn enhance a company’s branding experience.
BQB, which holds its headquarters in Montevideo, Uruguay serves multiples cities throughout the Southern Cone region of South America including Buenos Aires, Santiago de Chile, Paraguay, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Curitiba, Brazil. The airline is currently in plans to increase its operations to include Brasilia, Salto and Iguazú, as well as increasing the frequency of flights between popular destinations.
Juan Patricio Lopez Mena, CEO of BQB Líneas Aéreas and Buquebus, the Uruguayan-Argentinean transportation company that serves as BQB’s parent company, commented: “As we extend BQB’s flight offerings in the Southern Cone region of Latin America and beyond, we welcome the support of Travelport’s industry-leading technology. We’re pleased that our attractive fares and regional air services will now be accessible to Travelport’s extensive network of connected travel agencies around the globe.”
