Travelport IT Services Agreement with TUIfly.com

Travelport has signed a new long-term airline IT services agreement with TUIfly, the third largest airline in Germany. The e-Ticketing technology is utilised by TUIfly.com, the flight travel portal of TUI Deutschland.

TUIfly.com has implemented Travelport E-Ticket Technologies in combination with its reservation system, New Skies, offered by Navitaire, enabling the airline to fully leverage the benefits of outbound interline e-ticketing. The new agreement is part of a TUIfly.com initiative to broaden the worldwide flight offer for customers and combinability of different airlines through new airline partnerships. With this technology TUIfly.com is able to distribute, process and fulfill flights of traditional network carriers using e-tickets not only on its B2C website but also in non-IATA tourist distribution channels.

As airlines become more reliant on partnerships and the ability to react in real time to passenger needs, while also lowering costs, TUIfly.com – which has been ticketless so far itself and with all partner airlines – has chosen to join the Travelport E-Ticket Interchange, the global e-ticketing solution for the exchange of interline e-ticket messages between airlines, ground handlers and travel industry partners. TUIfly’s first interline partner is Lufthansa, which allows TUIfly.com to book customers on Lufthansa flights and issue own e-Tickets.
