Jazeera Airways and Travelport strengthen partnership with new exclusive global full content agreement

October 9, 2013 Technology No Comments Email Email

Travelport, a leading distribution services and e-commerce provider for the global travel industry, and Jazeera Airways, Kuwait’s largest airline serving the Middle East, today announced the renewal of their global full content agreement.

Building on the existing relationship between the Kuwait-based airline and the Global Distribution Systems (GDS) provider, the new agreement will ensure that content from Jazeera Airways will continue to be made available exclusively to Travelport GDS users in Kuwait, with preferred access to the carrier’s best inventory and fares.

Jazeera Airways, an award-winning airline that serves 19 destinations across the Middle East and North Africa, is one of the largest airlines on its routes network. In addition to the new content deal, Jazeera Airways will also subscribe to Travelport Sponsored Flights Advertising™*, an advertising tool which enables carriers to place flights in a separate area above the neutral display on the travel agent’s availability results screen for optimum visibility. This industry first solution can promote new destinations or expanded service on existing routes, market reduced or promotional fares and offer alternative airport choices.

“This new agreement will enable Jazeera Airways to continue building on its strong partnership with the travel industry across the region and to offer travelers better access to enhanced and competitive fares through their local agent. Having a solid distribution strategy is a key element in continuing our strategic growth across the Middle East, and Travelport is the partner to help us achieve that.” said the VP Sales at Jazeera Airways, Rafiq Boghdady.

“Travelport’s agreement with Jazeera Airways provides a level of agency access to the airline that is unmatched by any other GDS,” said Will Owen Hughes, Travelport’s Senior Director, Supplier Services, Middle East and Africa. “Working with low-cost carriers is a key part of our business strategy and this enhanced agreement will allow Jazeera Airways to take full advantage of Travelport’s global reach and take their business to the next level.”
