IndiGo Signs GDS Agreement with Travelport

IndiGo, India’s largest domestic airline and one of the world’s fastest growing low cost carriers, has selected Travelport to distribute its fares and ancillary products worldwide. This is the first time that IndiGo has partnered a global GDS.

 IndiGo, which commenced operations in 2006 with a single aircraft, now operates a fleet of 112 aircraft including the new Airbus A320neo with 424 more on order.

 Through the strategic partnership with Travelport, IndiGo will place its fares, ancillary products and offers into the Travel Commerce Platform. This will enable IndiGo to provide its content via an API connection.

Commenting on the partnership, Aditya Ghosh, President & Whole Time Director, IndiGo said, “This arrangement with Travelport will allow us to reach new customers, both at home and overseas, in a cost effective manner without incurring the traditional costs associated with participating in global distribution platforms using old style industry mechanisms and instead, enabling our real time connectivity to the GDS platform via an XML API link.”
