“It is significantly more efficient having access to full VA inventory in Galileo,” said Peter Morrison, Managing Director for Cairns Central Travel. “It used to take us 15 minutes to make a VA booking on the Internet. Now, through the Galileo platform, booking time is reduced to around three minutes. It feels good to have full control over our bookings and we are happy to be selling Virgin Australia flights again.”

Webjet Australia, one of Travelport’s biggest OTA partners globally, also commented on the improvement in the operational efficiency of having VA content through the Travelport platform. “The ability to access VA content through our partners at Travelport increased the operational efficiency for Webjet,” said John Guscic, Managing Director. “We are able to provide enhanced services and our customers benefit from a more seamless workflow.”

Damian Hickey, Vice President of Distribution Sales and Services for Travelport Asia-Pacific, said: “The new agreement with Virgin Australia is an excellent outcome for Travelport and our global subscribers. We are delighted to partner with such a significant carrier in the Australian aviation market. Securing full Virgin Australia content delivers many benefits for travel agents, including access to the most competitive fares available on one centralised platform, so they are able to provide better travel options and service to their customers.”
