EasyJet and Travelport Sign New Agreement

A new agreement between easyJet and Travelport means that all Galileo-connected travel agents worldwide – and any other Travelport agency using Travelport Universal API, can now benefit from the improved efficiency and productivity achieved by accessing all easyJet content through the Travelport GDS.

The new agreement will also deliver enhanced functionality to improve the booking process for agents, including the sale of easyJet ancillary services. Current easyJet ancillaries available in the workflow include Speedy Boarding and Pre-Paid Bags, Excess Bags and Sporting Equipment.

This agreement builds on an earlier one signed between the two companies in 2007, which marked easyJet’s first move into enabling third-party distribution of its products.

EasyJet Director Andrew Hodges said: “We are delighted to be extending and expanding our partnership with Travelport and making our content available to all travel agents. Travelport’s extensive global footprint provides us with an efficient distribution channel for distributing our popular low fares, including the Flexi fare, especially to the managed corporate travel market.”
