Travelport has launched a new tool in Asia, allowing developers to use its content to develop new apps and solutions.
The Travelport Universal API (Application Programming Interface) aggregates content from the GDS, accommodation providers, low-cost carriers, rail suppliers and ancillary services through a single connection.
This enables developers to gain access to multiple content sources by writing code for only one solution, reducing the time required to launch new travel apps. Travelport said the API is available to “developers and companies that want to build or expand their commercial business from creating next generation travel applications and tools”.
Patrick Andres, Travelport’s vice president & regional managing director for Asia Pacific, said; “We are delighted to launch the Travelport Universal API in Asia as developers in this region see the value in this unique technology which helps them develop innovative new travel apps quickly and efficiently.”
Travelport Universal API is part of the Travelport Developer Network – a programme which supports the developer community to build applications using Travelport technology. Following the Asia launch, the API is now available in more than 90 countries.
