Derek Sharp, Senior Vice President and Managing
Director, Air Commerce, Travelport, said, ďThis is an
exciting development in Travelportís longstanding and deep
relationship with Emirates. Their decision to launch advanced paid

testament to how we are able to really support them market their
unique offerings to the global travel trade and end travelers.
Emirates has made some significant investments in its inflight
