Travelport and Kenya Airways have signed a renewal to its distribution agreement and agreed a closer working partnership.
The new contract will extend the partnership for a further five years ensuring that Kenya Airways continues to distribute through the Galileo GDS and other Travelport channels.
In addition the new agreement will bring both companies into a closer working relationship with Galileo Kenya rebranding to Travelport Kenya to emphasise the marketing investment in the region.
The extended distributor agreement follows a previous joint announcement made late last year of a new full content agreement between Travelport and Kenya Airways.
“Our long term partnership with Kenya Airways over the past 10 years has been very productive and they have proved themselves to be a very solid distributor of the Galileo platform in this market – something they have achieved through their very strong trade relationships.
“We’re delighted to be announcing this renewed agreement today and it very much forms part of our ongoing strategy to invest in Africa and deliver leading technology to the travel industry,” said Mark Meehan, managing director for Travelport in Africa.
