This agreement together with Travelport Academy, Travelport’s recently launched online travel training portal, will enable OTT, which currently has 70,000+ registered members, provide up-to-date and relevant training on Travelport’s core GDS systems to travel industry professionals as well as members of the general public who may be interested in starting a new career in the travel industry.

“We are thrilled to be working in close collaboration with Travelport to offer their latest GDS training to existing and new members across the globe,” said Bruce Martin, Operations Director for OTT. “We are confident that it’s the most up-to-date GDS training available online, as much of what is currently available online is out of date and based on technology that has moved on.

“Through the Travelport Academy programme, modules of differing levels are on offer meaning there is something to suit both industry professionals wishing to brush up on their skills, as well as beginner modules for those wishing to start a new career in travel.”

Joanna Owen, Senior Director, Head of Customer Experience, Travelport, said: “We know there is growing demand for more online, self-paced GDS training and the Online Travel Training Group has a superb track record of retailing such courses. By teaming up with Travelport Academy, OTT now has the opportunity to retail the most up-to-date GDS training modules to existing and future travel agents across the globe. I am confident that this will be a strong relationship between our two organisations.”
