Travelport, a leading travel commerce marketplace providing distribution, technology, payment and other solutions for the $7 trillion global travel and tourism industry, has been honoured with the Best Travel Agent Technology Innovation Award for its Travelport Merchandising Platform at the 2014 AFTA (Australian Federation of Travel Agents) National Travel Industry Awards.

The prestigious National Travel Industry Awards is an annual event that recognises companies and individuals who have made significant contributions to the travel industry. The Best Travel Agent Technology Innovation category awards programs and projects that have successfully leveraged technology solutions to create products which improve business processes of Australian retail travel agencies. Travelport Merchandising Platform was the winner of this category out of five finalists.

Launched one year ago, Travelport Merchandising Platform is an industry-leading technology which enables airlines to distribute and differentiate all of their fares and ancillaries via the travel agency channel, connecting to Travelport exactly how they chose to, whilst enabling travel agencies to fully compare the offers from those airlines. 

“We are delighted with the worldwide recognition and industry support received for our Travelport Merchandising Platform since its launch last year. Winning the ‘Best Travel Agent Technology Innovation’ award demonstrates the value that the Australian travel industry sees in our efforts to advance how airline fares and ancillaries are booked, searched and sold via the travel agent to the end traveller. We look forward to introducing this solution to more airlines and travel agencies in the region, and thank AFTA again for honouring us with this award,” said Mark Meehan, Managing Director Asia-Pacific, Travelport.
