Travelport and SNCF Announce Renewed Distribution Agreement

Travelport and SNCF have announced a new multi-year distribution agreement, continuing the existing relationship between Travelport and SNCF that dates back to 1999. Since then, Travelport has supported the distribution of SNCF rail products and services and enabled travel agents and tour operators to sell the full range of SNCF’s content, in France and over Europe.

Sinead Reilly, Travelport’s Country Manager for Ireland, said: “To meet the constantly changing needs of the traveller, travel agents must be able to access a comprehensive range of content within a fully integrated, advanced and user-friendly platform. SNCF’s content is key for our customers in Europe and our travel commerce platform will provide them with even more choice of content and empowered selling. We are also very proud to renew our partnership with SNCF, a leading rail operator in Europe.”

Laurent Bijaoui, Directeur National des ventes agences de voyages SNCF, said: “Travel agencies represent a strategic channel for SNCF and an important part of our growth plans. In that framework, partnering with Travelport is instrumental to offer modern and efficient tools, supporting travel agencies growth, both in France and internationally. We are confident that, in future, Travelport’s travel agencies will be booking SNCF products even faster and more easily than ever before thanks to Travelport distribution solutions. The future starts now.”

Travelport and SNCF jointly presented the new distribution agreement during the International French Travel Market Top Resa in Paris from 29th September to 2nd October 2015.
