Singapores Tigerair has entered into a distribution partnership with Travelport that will see Tigerair make its fares and ancillary content available to Travelport-connected travel agents globally.

As part of the agreement, Tigerair will also adopt the GDS providers aggregated shopping technology, a key component of the Travelport Merchandising Platform.

Established in 2004, Tigerair is one of the largest low cost airlines operating out of Singapore and offers flights to over 50 destinations across 13 countries in the Asia Pacific region.

 Tigerair comprises of four airlines: Tigerair Singapore, Tigerair Mandala (Indonesia), Tigerair Philippines and Tigerair Australia.

 Through the agreement with Travelport, content from its three Asian airlines will be bookable for all Travelport-connected agents worldwide.

As part of the distribution agreement, Tigerair will leverage the Travelport Merchandising Platform to make its optional add-ons such as checked-in bags, pre-allocated seating and Tigerbites meals easily bookable by travel agents.

The partnership will also see Tigerair participating in the aggregated shopping component of the merchandising platform.

Travelport Aggregated Shopping consolidates, within the same screen, shopping results from traditional carriers who connect through ATPCO with those from Tigerair and other no-frills carriers who prefer to connect with Travelport via an API connection.

 The new technology negates the need to shop and compare across several screens and allows travel agents to compare efficiently in the same booking flow.

Alexander Knigge, Group Chief Commercial Officer, Tigerair, said, Travelports merchandising platform allows us to display our fares alongside those of traditional carriers and reach the travel agency community more easily. This is another Tigerair first in the Asia Pacific region and Im confident that it will be a winning formula for travel agents and travelers alike and will allow us to achieve further growth through an additional sales platform.
