Travelport has announced a new long-term, full-content service agreement with the InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG). IHG, which manages more rooms than any other hotel group, will provide its entire stock of rooms to all Travelport customers.
IHG will also participate in advanced merchandising, pricing and connectivity solutions from Travelport, including Travelport’s enhanced Best Available Rate (BAR) Program, Travelport Complete Pricing Plus and Travelport XML Pro Technology Solution.
“IHG seeks long-term partnerships that fortify our business by expanding our reach and sales,” said Andrew Rubinacci, vice president, Distribution & Intermediary Sales, IHG.
“We established an XML Pro interface to Worldspan in 2008 and experienced greater transaction efficiency, speed and accuracy. Travelport is a leader in XML solutions, and we’re eager to use their next-gen XML Pro Technology Solution across all three of their GDSs, and to increase the relevance of data we provide agents during the shopping process.”
