easyJet and Travelport have announced a new long-term agreement which allows Travelport-connected travel agencies to continue to have access to easyJet’s content through the Travel Commerce Platform.
In addition, easyJet will continue to use Travelport’s Rich Content and Branding solution which enables easyJet to display and merchandise its full range of fares more effectively.
“easyJet was one of the first airlines in the low-cost sector to make its inventory available through the GDS and it remains of paramount importance to continue our relationship with Travelport and to utilise key products like inclusive fares and corporate negotiated fares,” explained Anthony Drury, head of business for easyJet. “Around 20% of easyJet’s passengers travel for business and we continue to deliver on the strategy we launched in 2010 to increase our appeal to the business travel sector. Enhancements including allocated seating, inclusive fares and fast track security have all played a part in enabling easyJet to attract more business passengers.”
