Peruvian Airlines is making its fares and ancillary content available to Travelport-connected travel agents worldwide.
The Lima-based carrier also becomes one of the first carriers in Latin America to participate in the Travelport Rich Content and Branding programme, a key component of the Travelport Merchandising Platform.
Peruvian Airlines general manager Alberto Lopes said: “As we continue to expand our route network, our partnership enables us to distribute with a leading provider, and Travelport’s merchandising platform will allow us to customise our product display and content within the Travelport GDS.
“I’m confident that it will be a winning formula for travel agents and travellers alike and will allow us to achieve further growth through an additional sales platform.”
Travelport’s global distribution sales and service vice president for the Americas Christopher Engle said: “We’re delighted that Peruvian Airlines recognises the leadership we have demonstrated in our merchandising capabilities and has signed up to be one of our first Rich Content and Branding airline participants in the Latin America region.
“This agreement makes clear Travelport is executing its merchandising strategy: to enable airlines to distribute their fares and ancillary content in a manner they choose; to do so through the travel agency channel and; to do it in a way that protects the integrity and efficiency of the GDS booking and management process for travel agents.”
