Travelport Signs Full Content Agreement with Air China

Travelport has today announced a new multi-year global full content agreement with Star Alliance member Air China. This follows a similar deal signed with China Southern last week.

Air China has enhanced its connectivity with Travelport to the highest level of GDS functionality providing Travelport-connected agencies with the most accurate access to Air China’s full range of inventories. Air China will also be implementing online check-in on Travelport’s ViewTrip website, thus providing instant access to travel itineraries and other flight and travel information online.
