Travelport has been named the launch GDS partner for Strategic Airlines, Australia’s newest full service airline.

The full content agreement will see Strategic Airlines participate on a GDS for the first time in its operating history, providing a new distribution channel for its expanding routes and services.

With the new distribution agreement, Galileo subscribers will have access to Strategic Airline’s most up-to-date routes, fares and seat availability, with full booking functionality, offering operational efficiencies and seamless end-to-end booking workflow. The airline will also provide full access to its inventory of flights and fares for Worldspan and Apollo connected travel agents in the coming weeks.
