IndiGo boards Travelport for fare, product distribution

Domestic airline IndiGo and travel commerce platform Travelport today officially launched their partnership for distribution of the budget carrier’s fares and ancillary products to the portal’s customers across 180 countries. National carrier Air India, Vistara and SpiceJet are among other airlines that already have a tie-up with Travelport. IndiGo in September had announced the signing of its strategic partnership with Travelport to distribute its low fares and ancillaries to all connected Travelport travel agencies around the world – both online and offline.
“We are very excited to officially launch our content on the travel commerce Platform today and proud of our partnership with Travelport. Travelport’s technology is providing an opportunity for us to reach new travellers at home and internationally,” IndiGo President and Whole-time Director Aditya Ghosh said. The Travelport platform offers fully-integrated, industry-leading merchandising capabilities and is used extensively by travel agencies in India as well as other key target markets for IndiGo. “By adding IndiGo’s fares and ancillaries to the Travelport platform, we have marked another significant industry first and we look forward to working with IndiGo in the years ahead to help them expand their distribution,” Gordon Wilson, President and CEO, Travelport said.
