Travelport has signed a new long-term, global full content agreement with British Airways.

The new agreement will see all of British Airways’ published fares and inventory made available to Galileo and Worldspan-connected travel agents worldwide until April 2013. In the UK and Ireland, the opt-in levels that were established by Travelport in March 2007, remain unchanged.

John Mornement, Head of Selling and Distribution for British Airways, said, "We have worked hard with Travelport to come to an agreement that will both reduce our distribution costs and ensure that agents continue to have access to our full published content, including our lowest fares, through Galileo and Worldspan."

Matthew Hall, Vice President, Supplier Business Development for Travelport’s GDS business in Europe, Middle East and Africa, added "We have a strong track record of reaching full content agreements with flag carriers across the globe and this deal with BA is further testament to our ability to reach sustainable deals that clearly demonstrate the long term viability and importance of the agency channel. I am delighted that we have struck a deal that is mutually beneficial for both parties and offers great value to travel agents."

Travelport and British Airways will also work together in the coming months on providing Galileo and Worldspan-connected travel agents with the ability to book extras such as seating through the GDS.
