Cathay Pacific extends Travelport distribution deal

Travelport and Cathay Pacific have extended their long-standing relationship with a renewed and expanded multi-source content distribution agreement.

The deal includes a commitment to work together in advancing its New Distribution Capability (NDC) initiatives.

With this new long-term agreement, Travelport will continue to support the Hong Kong-based carrier by providing Travelport-connected agencies around the world with real-time access to search, sell, and book its content and inventory.

Martin Xu, general manager sales and distribution at Cathay Pacific, said: “The longevity of our relationship is ample testament to the fruitful partnership we’ve enjoyed with Travelport over the past decades.

“With the expanded flight offerings, fares and ancillaries available in this new agreement, we look forward to helping agencies connected to Travelport generate even more value for their customers.”

The agreement will see the content available to agents progressively expanded, to include a larger range of fares as well as ancillaries than had previously been unavailable.

Sue Carter, head of Asia Pacific, air partners at Travelport, added: “We are delighted to be able to offer even more of Cathay Pacific’s content, especially as we progress with our work on NDC.

“Simplifying access to multi-source content, while simultaneously making it easier to sell is exactly what our new Travelport+ platform is designed to do, and we’re confident this new agreement will generate more value than ever before for Cathay Pacific and our connected agencies alike.”
