German online group Unister Travel is to gain access to travel content distributed by Travelport.
Unister runs a number of online travel portals, with brands such as Ab-In-Den-Urlaub.de, Ab-In-Den-Urlaub-Deals.de, Fluege.de and Reisen.de, which collectively attract over 10 million unique users a month.
Users will have access to Travelport’s content from leading national and low-cost carriers and the travel technology company’s Universal API.
Unister will also make use of Travelport’s Rapid Reprice solution for more efficient ticket re-issuing and its Search Control Console to tailor the relevancy of search results to traveller needs.
The move follows the acquisition of German tour operator distribution company, travel-IT, by Travelport earlier this year.
Simon Ferguson, managing director of Travelport UK, Ireland and the Nordics, said: “Thanks to targeted investments Travelport has made in its Travel Commerce Platform in recent years, bringing new and innovative products and technology to the industry, as well as even more relevant content, we can offer Unister Travel, its online travel portals and its customers genuine added value and meet some of their previously unmet needs.
“We believe this will make an important contribution to Unister Travel’s business success and their growth strategy over the coming years.”
Uniser’s chief executive, Boris Raoul, added: “Unister Travel is already one of the leading suppliers of flight tickets in the German travel industry.
“The integration of Travelport’s innovative technology into our portals will help us to further optimise the unique selection and variety of flight offerings for our customers.”
