“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.”
