The global operator of the Travelport distribution system has entered into new agreements with International Airlines Group and Air France-KLM to channel the content of the new distribution capacity through its Travelport Plus platform, the company said.
The agreements mean Air France-KLM and IAG’s airlines – Aer Lingus, British Airways, Iberia and Vueling – will be able to offer tour operators a wider range of content, depending on the airlines. Agents who sign an access agreement with airlines will be able to access NDC content and services through Travelport’s Smartpoint point-of-sale product or through API connections.

The resulting types of content will vary by agreement, as “we work with each airline individually to determine the best content to maximize agent choice,” said Chris Ramm, Travelport vice president of airline partners. global business, in an email.

For IAG, the new content options will include additional pricing and an expanded selection of ancillary products, according to Travelport. Air France-KLM customers will see “more attractive and personalized offers, such as continuous fares and tailor-made packages,” said Pieter Bootsma, Air France-KLM revenue director, in a statement.

Travelport is working with the two companies to be able to roll out their NDC content starting in 2022, with features to be added gradually, according to the company.
