Today, Travelport a leading Travel Commerce Platform, and Sharp Aviation K, one of Korea’s largest aviation service companies, are pleased to announce a long-term renewal deal for Worldspan Korea.  The agreement will further establish the companies’ continued partnership in distributing the Worldspan platform in Korea.

Sharp Aviation K has operated Worldspan Korea since 1998, providing support for reservations and ticketing functions to travel agents.  Worldspan Korea has brought Travelport’s industry leading technology solutions, including Smartpoint, to Korea’s offline travel agencies for almost two decades.

Asia Pacific is Travelport’s fastest growing region globally, with 18% Year on Year growth, as of March 31, 2017. With Korea now positioned as one of the fastest-growing travel markets in Asia Pacific, it is a key commercial market for Travelport. In 2016, roughly 22 million Koreans (almost half of the country’s population) travelled abroad, contrasting with just twelve million who travelled in 2011[1].

“We have a great partnership with Travelport and we look forward to continue working with the leading travel commerce platform. The renewal of our deal will further support our growth in one of the fastest growing Asian markets” said Soon Suk Paik, Owner of Worldspan Korea.

Martin Herbert, Managing Director Asia for Travelport commented, “We have built an invaluable relationship with Sharp Aviation K and we are delighted to extend this long-term partnership with Worldspan Korea. This agreement is testament to Travelport’s combination of innovative technology and extensive travel content, together with Worldspan Korea’s market familiarity.  Together, we can effectively support customers to achieve commercial success.”
