Airtrain Signs Distribution Agreement with Travelport

Travelport has signed a distribution agreement with Airtrain, an airport transport service which connects Brisbane Airport to Brisbane City and the Gold Coast by rail.

Under the agreement, Travelport-connected agents will be able to book Airtrain tickets through Travelport’s app, Airport Express.

 Travel agents will receive an automatic prompt when an air booking is made into and out of Brisbane Airport as a reminder that Airtrain offers airport direct services into Brisbane City and the Gold Coast.

Chris Basche, CEO, Airtrain, said, “We are delighted to work with Travelport to utilise their tremendous distribution network of over 67,000 global agents worldwide, providing us with a huge reach to grow our sales. The Airport Express App is a user-friendly tool which enables agents to book our services instantly, ensuring travellers have access to our efficient and comfortable mode of transport when travelling from Brisbane Airport to Brisbane City and the Gold Coast.”

Launched in March last year, Travelport was the first travel technology platform to offer an airport connection services app for airport express services. Heathrow Express in the UK was the first customer to sign up to this unique service, which was developed by a UK-based company Developer Connections Ltd, part of Travelport’s Developer Network.

 Damian Hickey, Vice President Asia-Pacific and Global Sales Strategy, Air Commerce, Travelport, said, “We are pleased to partner with Airtrain to help them grow via the travel agency channel. We look forward to adding further partners to our system and providing our agents with the preferred tools and convenient access to book this mode of transport.”
