Travelport has signed a new multi-year, full content agreement with Frontier Airlines.

Frontier will also subscribe to Travelports merchandising products, enabling the distribution of its Branded Fares and all ancillary options, including Stretch seating, through Travelport-connected agents.

Through the agreement, Frontier will make its published fares and seat inventory including fares available on its website, and through its reservation offices and third parties available to all Travelport-connected travel agents and subscribers globally, including all offline travel agencies and online agencies booking through Travelport.

As part of the agreement, Frontier will over time offer Travelport-connected travel agents the option of selling their passengers upgrades to Frontier Airlines Stretch seating as well as the airlines Branded Fares.

 Stretch seating upgrades will become available through the standard desktop and workflow processes, followed by Branded Fares.
