Travelport has signed a new multi-year strategic distribution agreement with Marriott International.
The agreement continues access for travel agents globally to Marriott International’s 4,500 hotels.
As part of the agreement, the companies will change the way Marriott International’s hotels are merchandised to travel agencies through Travelport’s travel commerce platform.
The agreement will also help Marriott International drive growth of the Marriott Rewards loyalty programme.
Bruce Hoffmeister, global chief information officer at Marriott International, said: “Travelport’s travel commerce platform enables us to reach travel buyers globally and we’re pleased to continue a partnership that supports our international growth.”
Niklas Andreen, senior vice president of hospitality at Travelport, said: “We are delighted to be continuing and developing our existing strategic relationship with Marriott International.
“This is an exciting partnership that forms part of our ongoing strategy to extend our ‘beyond air’ offering, focusing on growth in both the leisure and corporate travel space.”
