French online travel agency MisterFly will integrate with Travelport’s merchandising technology, the firms have announced.
The deal means MisterFly will use Travelport’s Universal API to connect to the travel commerce platform’s Travelport Rich Content and Branding, designed to help airlines display branded fares and ancillaries in a visual way.
Through Travelport’s platform, MisterFly says it has improved customer service to provide the new Air France Group offers, which were launched at the end of 2016, to its B2B customers at MisterFly Pro.
More than 200 airlines across the globe, including Air France, are now live with Travelport while more than 200,000 customers have already travelled with the Paris-headquartered OTA.
Carlos da Silva, vice president and founder of MisterFly, said: “Our business mission is to best serve the traveller and we try to highlight all the necessary information and provide our agency customers with the most suitable rates. Travelport’s industry leading technology provides us with much greater visibility worldwide and for us to more effectively endorse our travel agent partners.”
Emmanuel Bourgeat, managing director at Travelport France, added: “Our continued technological investments in the power of the platform help us constantly redefine the way our customers buy and sell travel.”
