The Travel Network Group has agreed a new five-year full content deal with Travelport.
The agreement sees the Galileo parent maintained as the 800-member independent agency group’s preferred GDS for the 12th year running.
The group will participate in Travelport Universal Desktop and work with its members to investigate implementing mobile technologies.
Group commercial director Martin Andrew said: “We have stayed with Travelport because they are a proven partner with a bright future in terms of technology.
“We’ve been impressed by the open platform and real breadth of content, from increased hotel and leisure options to new low-cost carrier content.”
The technology supplier’s UK and Ireland regional director Simon Ferguson said: “The Travel Network Group is a partner looking for new, innovative technologies to benefit their extensive membership community.
“Once implemented, Travelport Mobile Agent will enable their members search real-time in the GDS through an Apple smartphone or tablet, providing greater levels of mobility and flexibility.”
Ferguson is to addressing the Travel Network Group’s ‘shaping your future’ conference on May 18 covering how to adapt and respond to changes facing the global travel industry.
