South African carrier Comair has renewed a long-term full content distribution deal with Travelport.
Travelport will soon give Comair the opportunity to create Iata New Distribution Capability connections and display NDC-based airline content on its platform.
Comair will also continue to be one of more than 250 airlines using Travelport’s rich content and branding merchandising tool, which gives agencies and travel bookers a graphically rich experience when searching for and booking branded fares.
The carrier’s head of marketing, loyalty and customer experience, Shaun Pozyn, said: “This renewed partnership offers great growth potential for us and demonstrates our commitment to deliver consistent value, reliability, and professionalism.
“By providing our travel agency partners with strong visuals and detailed descriptions of our products and services – just like on our websites, rich content and branding helps ensure Comair continues to gain market share in the Southern African aviation and travel industry.”
Travelport EMEA air commerce vice president Philip Saunders added: “We are delighted Comair continues to recognise the value of Travelport’s innovative technology leadership and best in class merchandising tool.
“We are looking forward to continuing to deliver branded fares to our wide network of agency partners in order to help the airline meet its growth objectives while accelerating Travelport’s position in the South African travel industry.”
