Travelport has signed a new global full content
agreement with JetBlue Airways. The new multi-year agreement
secures access to the airline’s full range of published fares and
inventory for all Travelport’s GDS-connected travel agents and
corporations worldwide with immediate effect.
The deal also includes an upgrade to
e-ticketing, Interactive Sell, and Interactive Seats. These
upgrades, planned for early first quarter of 2010, give Travelport
customers real-time access to JetBlue inventory in the primary
availability display (last-seat availability), real-time
confirmation of bookings and seats, enabling them to offer the
highest level of service to their travelers.
"Through this partnership, we are delighted to provide our
customers with full access to JetBlue fares and inventory through
our Galileo and Worldspan distribution channels," said Dan
Westbrook, vice president, Supplier Services, Travelport GDS. "As
a global marketplace for 63,000 travel agencies worldwide,
Travelport is committed to providing full content for our
customers and providing cost-effective and value-added
distribution to all suppliers."
"JetBlue is pleased
to provide our travel agent partners who are also Travelport
subscribers with key booking process improvements and access to
our full content," added Noreen Courtney-Wilds, vice president,
Sales, JetBlue Airways. "This new agreement allows us to add
valuable incremental business and reach people who otherwise would
not have an opportunity to book JetBlue."
