Air France KLM has signed an agreement for the
distribution of content through Travelport’s platform.
Air France, KLM and HOP! content on Travelport’s
platform will include Travelport’s leading rich content, branded
fares, fare families and multiple ancillaries.
This agreement also enables customers selected
by Air France HOP! and KLM to access a private channel via
Travelport through which they will receive content without the
additional distribution surcharge levied by Air France KLM
starting 1 April 2018.
Derek Sharp, Travelport’s Senior Vice President and Managing Director for Air
Commerce, said, “We are delighted to have signed this agreement
with Air France KLM, one of Europe’s leading airline groups. This
is an extension of a long-term relationship which has delivered
greater choice to Air France KLM’s customers. We look forward to a
continuing productive partnership as we deploy new technology with
Emmanuelle Gailland, Vice President Distribution
Air France KLM, said, “Travelport has been a great partner
throughout our Private Channel engagement as a transition towards
NDC. Both Air France KLM and Travelport will work together to
bring NDC content of new fares, products, services and rich media
in the marketplace.”
