MakeMyTrip to Use Travelport’s Travel Commerce Platform

MakeMyTrip, one of India’s leading online travel agencies, has signed an agreement with Travelport’s distributor for India, InterGlobe Technology Quotient (ITQ), for the use of Travelport’s Travel Commerce Platform.

 Together with its other brand, Goibibo and redBus, MakeMyTrip receives over 33 million visits via its desktop and mobile-web platforms and serves over 40 million mobile app users each month.

Under the agreement, MakeMyTrip will expand the use of Travelport’s technology from the Ibibo Group to MakeMyTrip’s other primary distribution channels.

Gordon Wilson, Travelport’s President and CEO, said, “India is a market with enormous growth potential where Travelport, working with our distributor ITQ, has grown in air booking terms by 14% in the first half of 2017 when the GDS air market has grown by 11%. Securing a partnership with the leading online travel agency in the market, with a high growth profile and tremendous track record, gives even further impetus to our plans in the country. The fact that MakeMyTrip has elected to work with us is a testament to our investment in leading edge search, shopping and booking technology alongside the significantly differentiated travel content now available on our platform for both the domestic and outbound Indian traveller.”
