“Expanding our global reach is an important part of our ongoing distribution strategy and an agreement with Travelport is the obvious way to achieve this,” said Rob van Dam, Vice President Sales of Transavia.com. “By accessing Travelport’s large customer base, we are opening up a valuable new channel for consumers to book our flights.”

Robin Ranken, Head of Airline Relationships for Europe at Travelport, added: “This is an important agreement for our travel agency customers worldwide, who currently are the only ones to have access to this content. We are delighted that Transavia.com has recognised the value that Travelport brings to airlines across the globe and we are excited about developing a long-term partnership with them.”
