Travelport Signs New Agreement with Scoot

Travelport has today announced a new agreement with Scoot, Singapore Airlines’ budget arm that offers low-cost, no frills airfares from Singapore to eight cities in China, Australia, Japan, Taiwan and Thailand.

Both companies have undertaken a seamless integration of Scoot’s content on to Travelport’s GDS platform. Effective immediately, this agreement enables Travelport-connected agents worldwide access to Scoot’s inventories on Galileo.

In addition to the content agreement, Scoot has chosen Travelport as its key provider of airline IT services, delivering e-ticketing access to the world’s global distribution systems and compatible airlines. Travelport’s e-ticket database hosting service, ETDBase, will store and manage Scoot’s e-ticket data for online and interline e-ticketing; and Travelport’s E-ticket Interchange will manage the exchange of interline electronic ticket messages between Travelport-connected subscribers, airlines and ground handlers.

“The agreement with Scoot is a strategic signing for Travelport,” said Damian Hickey, Vice President of Distribution Sales and Services for Travelport Asia-Pacific. “One of the key focus areas for my team is expanding our low-cost air offering, and we are delighted to partner with Scoot in the years ahead.”

“The connection to Travelport’s GDS platform further extends the distribution channels of Scoot’s great value airfares, giving us global access to travel agencies and hence attracting more customers from around the world as we continue to grow our business,” said Campbell Wilson, Chief Executive of Scoot.
