Travelport has expanded its partnership with mobile flight booking app Hopper.
The Hopper app, compatible with iOS and Android, uses big data to find, analyze, and predict air fares and then alerts travelers when to act immediately or when to wait to book the cheapest flight to their destination.
Hopper, launched in 2015, is leveraging Travelport’s Universal API and Travelport shopping data products to provide travelers with recommendations into the best flight options to purchase.
“Travelport’s innovative technology, along with our leading data-driven research and analytics, is helping travelers make better decisions and save money on their flight bookings,” said Frederic Lalonde, Hopper’s founder and chief executive.
Chris Zando, Travelport’s vice president of partnerships and alliances, added: “Our work with Hopper is a great example of Travelport’s commitment to engage with early stage companies who recognize the value that our industry-leading technology gives them to boost their success and future growth.”
