Travelport Signs Multiyear Agreement with Qantas

Travelport has signed a multiyear agreement with Qantas Airways that includes distribution of the Australian national carrier’s content and integration into Qantas’ recently announced NDC platform, the Qantas Distribution Platform (QDP).

Travelport’s Rich Content and Branding merchandising solution has been deployed, giving over 65,000 of Travelport-connected travel agencies globally access to images of cabins and meals. These agents will also be able to book ancillaries such as extra legroom seating.

Travelport has been granted the highest certification by IATA for its New Distribution Capability (NDC) airline distribution technology. With this, Travelport can easily support the QDP, improving the flexibility of content distribution, as the airline becomes one of the first to deploy NDC content later this year.

Stephen Shurrock, Travelport’s Chief Commercial Officer, said, “This agreement is testament to Qantas’ commendable forward-looking vision. Travelport is proud to be a global pioneer of NDC connections with the airline. Whether it’s the deployment of Rich Content and Branding or our new NDC capabilities, Travelport is uniquely equipped to support Qantas in optimizing content distribution globally.”
