Agents are being given access to Turkish low-cost carrier Pegasus Airlines’ inventory and fares in a GDS distribution deal with Travelport.
The carrier is participating in the Travelport Travel Commerce Platform to reach users globally.
Pegasus Airlines will also use Travelport’s Sponsored Flights – a point-of-sale advertising tool that places selected flights above the neutral display on the agent’s screen for optimum visibility.
Travelport UK and Ireland managing director Simon Ferguson said: “Pegasus Airlines is the latest fast-growing, low-cost carrier to participate in our Travel Commerce Platform and the deal highlights our commitment to providing the widest airline content to both our regional and global customers.
“Turkey remains a key growth country and we’re delighted to be able to support Pegasus in the next stage of its development.”
The airline’s senior vice-president commercial, Güliz Öztürk, added: “Travelport’s extensive, world-wide travel agency network complements our ambitious growth plans, making it a valued partner and an important distribution channel. Being a low-cost carrier, our outgoings need to be kept down so that we are able to offer the lowest possible fares to our customers.
“This partnership will be in line with both our low-cost model and our multi-channel approach and in turn, our ever-expanding network in the Middle East, Caucasus, Russia and Europe will mean that agents can tap into our wide network of 86 destinations in 36 countries, at low cost.”
