Travelport, a leading commerce platform, and Hong Kong-based travel agency Edmond Travel, have signed a new multi-year agreement which enables Edmond Travel to access Travelport’s unrivalled travel content – including branded fares and ancillaries from the world’s leading airlines and low cost carriers, and over 650,000 hotel properties.
Established in 1982, Edmond Travel is one of the leading leisure travel agencies in Hong Kong providing its customers with flight, hotel, and packaged tour bookings, as well as expert travel recommendations.
Following the migration to Travelport, Edmond Travel-connected agents are now processing travel bookings using Travelport’s Smartpoint point of sale solution. In addition, Edmond Travel is also working closely with Travelport’s team of OTA experts and leveraging Travelport Universal API technology to develop a brand new internet booking engine, www.ticket7.com.
Edmond Ng, Managing Director, Edmond Travel comments: “We chose to switch to Travelport for several reasons including their online technology and support which will enable Edmond Travel to expand in the OTA space. We were also impressed with Travelport Smartpoint’s easy to use point-and-click features and rich graphical descriptions which have decreased our training time and overheads.”
Martin Herbert, General Manager, Asia, Travelport, comments: “We are delighted to have Edmond Travel on board and look forward to helping them expand their business and entering an exciting period of growth.”
