Webjet Extends Partnership with Travelport

Travelport has been awarded a new long-term technology contract by Australia and New Zealand’s top online travel agency, Webjet, following an extensive competitive bid process.

Under the agreement, Webjet will participate in initiatives driven by Travelport involving IATA’s New Distribution Capability (NDC) standard.

NDC is a travel industry-supported program launched by IATA that will enable the travel industry to transform the way air products are retailed to corporations, leisure and business travellers.

By extending its partnership with Travelport, Webjet will continue to enjoy real-time access to a broad range of content from over 400 airlines, hundreds of thousands of hotel properties, and 37,000 car rental locations. In addition, it will benefit from Travelport’s search, automation, shopping and booking technologies, while accessing valuable data, business logic and profiling functionality on a single platform.

Webjet will also soon deploy Travelport Trip Services, allowing it to utilize the industry’s latest APIs to efficiently perform mobile-optimized search across the full range of Travelport content.

Shelley Beasley, Group Chief Commercial Officer at Webjet, said, “We are delighted to extend our agreement with Travelport. The company has been a highly-valued technology partner to Webjet for close to 20 years and we continue to be impressed by the quality, speed and reliability of its solutions as well as its dedication to lead change in the industry, which now extends to IATA NDC.”
