Travelport AI deal
TRAVELPORT has confirmed its contract with Air India (AI) has been “fully implemented” on 01 Jan, making it the only global distribution system (GDS) provider through which travel agents in India can receive both Air India’s domestic and international flight content.
The contract was awarded to Travelport after a competitive bidding process (TD 12 Oct 2018), and came into effect in Nov 2018.
Travelport also continues to provide all domestic and int’l flight content from the carrier to its global network of travel agents.
Earlier this week Amadeus announced it would provide
Air India’s full range of content globally, except in India, where sellers could only access the carrier’s international content, due to a deal with Travelport (TD 07 Jan).
Last week Air India exited the Sabre global distribution system, following a 20-year relationship (TD 06 Jan).
