Travelport has signed an agreement with Global Travel Services Ltd to distribute the Galileo and Worldspan GDS to travel agencies in Uzbekistan.
The agreement follows on from successful partnerships with Global Travel Services in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
It is part of the company’s ongoing multi-million dollar investment strategy into eastern Europe and central Asia.
Travelport’s head of new markets Oliver Streit said: “This new partnership marks an important milestone for Travelport as we set up our new operations in the Central Asian region to strengthen our presence and provide increased support to our agents.
“Their excellent track record including their ability to successfully enter and grow new countries as well as their convincing sales and marketing strategy for Uzbekistan were strong deciding factors in establishing this relationship.”
Global Travel Services’ director Azam Sultan said: “Our efforts in Pakistan and Afghanistan over a decade have been very fruitful.
“We have a strong presence in both of these territories and so we are excited to extend our footprint to Uzbekistan where we hope to replicate our successes.”
