easyJet renews its deal with Travelport

easyJet renews its deal with TravelportLUTON, England — easyJet, the UK’s largest airline, has renewed its distribution agreement with Travelport.

The new agreement means that Travelport–connected travel agencies worldwide can easily access and book all easyJet flights, including Flexi Fares and Inclusive Fares through their preferred GDS booking processes.

easyJet’s recently launched Inclusive Fare combines the services that are important to corporate bookers such as bag and seat selection, with easyJet’s low fares and is only available through the GDS and other booking systems connected to the easyJet API.

Andy Hodges, easyJet’s Director Sales, Distribution and Business, said: “We are delighted to have renewed our deal with Travelport – its extensive global footprint provides us with an efficient distribution channel for our popular low-fares, including the Inclusive Fare and Flexi Fare, especially to the managed corporate travel market.”

Robin Ranken, Head of European Airline Relations at Travelport, added: “We’ve had a strong relationship with easyJet for some years now and we’re very pleased to be renewing our distribution agreement with them today.  We look forward to continuing to work closely together and exploring further opportunities for easyJet to use our leading technology in order to maximize bookings with the travel trade.”

In addition to Galileo, Travelport’s Worldspan and Apollo GDS systems will also provide access to easyJet fares later this year.
